Or, why not try maple bacon, red velvet cake, or salted caramel? We Knead Donut can also create tasty treats for special occasions such as birthdays.

The best seller for all We Knead Donut locations is the croissant donut. Croissant breakfast sandwiches and kolaches are also on the menu along with boba, coffee, tea, and more.

We Knead Donut owner Brad Kwon hopes to open the Washington Park location at 723 S. University sometime in early fall. Kwon is also planning an Aurora location, which is expected to take some time before it begins serving tasty treats to the public because the HVAC is being replaced at the location.

“I think I’m on the right track for my goal for this year. I have a plan to open two more next year, so I’m satisfied,” Kwon told What Now Denver. Kwon’s business plan includes partnerships with We Knead Donut management that gives them the option to purchase the donut shop after several years in business. “I think I’m going to keep that model for a while, but after maybe 15-20 locations, I’m going to think about selling all of them.”

Kwon was an engineer for about a decade, but his all-time dream to work for himself led him to change careers and open a donut shop, which he sold after six years. We Knead Donut currently has locations in Greenwood Village and Johnstown.

The Westminster location at 12039 N. Pecos St. could open in a few weeks while the Lakewood area shop at 200 Union Blvd., Unit 214 and another location at 8246 W. Bowles Ave., Unit C in Littleton are at least four months out from opening.

“We don’t see as many donut shops in Denver as in other cities. If you go to Texas or California, donut shops are on every corner but not in Denver,” Kwon said. Kwon is now strategically planning his new locations to dominate the Denver market.

Dorit Fischer with NAI Shames Makovsky represented the landlord in the S. University leasing transaction, and Lev Cohen with Weststar Commercial represented the tenant.
