Doughnut fans in Streeterville aren't just getting one new artisan doughnut shop. A second Stan's Donuts is in the works—for a location nearly next door to the upcoming second Do-Rite Donuts. After owner Rich Labriola mentioned a possible expansion last year, a coming soon sign is up outside the new Northwestern Hospital outpatient building in Streeterville.
Labriola says he's hoping to open the new location on October 13. It will focus on a similar selection of doughnuts and coffee, as well as gelato in the spring, but it will have "a little more contemporary design," he says.
The original Wicker Park location, a partnership with Stan's Donuts in Los Angeles, is bustling and well-received. Lines often stretch out the door during peak hours for the yeast-raised and cake doughnuts from the bread maven and founder of Labriola Baking Company.
Labriola doesn't shy away from competition; he opened the first Stan's across the street from the Glazed & Infused takeout window in Wicker Park and will open another nearly next door to Lettuce Entertain You partners Francis Brennan and Jeff Mahin's second Do-Rite in Streeterville. Look for Stan's to open in the fall; Do-Rite is slated to open sometime in the summer.
