The wildly popular cake-y doughnuts from Federal Donuts, an only-in-Philly chain co-owned by the team behind Zahav, are now available for home delivery, starting Friday, March 27.
Initially, Federal Donuts was one of the many eateries in Philly that chose to close temporarily in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 rather than stay open for delivery and takeout. But like many area restaurateurs, owners Mike Solomonov, Steve Cook, Tom Henneman, Felicia D’Ambrosio, and Bob Logue are taking it day by day and adjusting to an amorphous situation.
For Federal Donuts, the plan is now to sell doughnuts through delivery service GoPuff. Doughnuts are available in boxes of six for $15, plus a $1.95 delivery fee (plus a tip for your delivery person). That includes one of each flavor: blueberry mascarpone, cookies and cream, chocolate salted caramel, double chocolate, grapefruit brûlée, and pistachio vanilla cardamom.
The doughnuts are available by 10 a.m. — they’ll be added to the list of GoPuff options each morning sometime between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. — and they’re on the site and app until they sell out.
GoPuff pledged to donate $1 million in orders (not just of doughnuts, of course) to health care workers by offering employees at participating hospitals a free order and free delivery. In the Philly area, that includes Penn Medicine and Jefferson hospitals.
