Beiler's Donuts, famous for its Amish-baked, ultra-delicate, yeast-based donuts, as well as some of the longest lines in Reading Terminal Market, is in expansion-mode.
Yesterday, the Philadelphia Business Journal reported about Beiler's new Lancaster, PA shop, "the company's first brick-and-mortar location" in 32 years, which opened last Tuesday at 398 Harrisburg Avenue. Its grand opening is slated for Tuesday, August 23.
But more importantly, there are other Philadelphia locations in the works:
"University City is up and coming; there's a lot of traffic between the two colleges, Penn and Drexel, and foot traffic with the expansion moving west," Kevin Beiler told the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The company is also looking for spaces in Center City, including the Rittenhouse Square area.
The University City Beiler's is slated for an early-2017 opening, "some time around February."
Until then, Philly will just have to wait in line, or make the two-hour drive to its new location in Lancaster, PA.
