  • Shipley Do-Nuts opened the doors to their Old Metairie location on Tuesday, April 10.

Following months of anticipation, regional doughnut and kolache hub Shipley Do-Nuts opened its Old Metairie location on Tuesday, April 10.

The first New Orleans location of the Houston, Texas-based franchise sits on the corner of Metairie Road and Labarre Drive, part of a new mixed-use development next to the Galley Seafood. WDSU-TV anchor Scott Walker, his wife Jennifer, Desi Vega of Mr. John’s Steakhouse and Desi Vega’s Steakhouse and Jimmy Licciardi are co-owners of the new location. Lisa Labit, who was the longtime general manager at the Byblos on Metairie Road (and later opened Mediterranean restaurant Hummus & More), is the general manager.

The regional franchise has been around since the late 1930s and now includes more than 190 locations across the country, including in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee.

The shop boasts 60 varieties of yeast, cake, filled donuts and assorted pastries, including cinnamon rolls, bear claws and apple fritters. A selection of savory kolaches includes versions with sausage, cheese and jalapeno, boudin and ham and cheese fillings.

The store is open 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
