Status Dough has opened a second location in downtown Knoxville. The location on the 400 block of Gay Street had its soft opening last Friday.
All of their doughnuts are made in Knoxville at the company’s first location in Bearden Hill.
Owners say they saw a need in downtown.
“Most times when we posted on social media – Instagram, Facebook – people would say, ‘I wish you were closer to downtown. There’s no doughnut shop down here. There’s a lot of ice cream,’ and we just kind of wanted to be in the sweet center of Knoxville,” said co-owner Karen Wooten.
The company has three different types of treats: buttermilk old fashioneds, traditional cake and yeast doughnuts, as well as coffee to go with them.
