Knead Doughnuts Expands Again and Launches Providence Kitchen Collaborative
One of Rhode Island’s favorite gourmet doughnut shops, Knead Doughnuts, has just expanded into a 5,000-square-foot kitchen that is now the Providence Kitchen Collaborative.
Homer Simpson might faint if he could see some of the gourmet doughnuts offered today. With wild fillings, fancy frosting and delicious dough, he’s not alone in his love of fried dough. One of Rhode Island’s favorite gourmet doughnut shops, Knead Doughnuts, has just expanded into a 5,000-square-foot kitchen previously operated by Pilotworks at 55 Cromwell Street in Providence. The new kitchen will be a part of Providence Kitchen Collaborative and it will also become Knead’s third doughnut shop in May.
Knead Doughnuts will not be the only residents of the collaborative space. The kitchen will also be home to seven food entrepreneurs. The founders of Knead, Adam Lastrina, Todd Mackey and Bryan Gibb – all local residents – are thrilled to be able to give back, knowing how difficult it can be to get a business off the ground (no matter how good your idea or how delicious your product is).
“We are humbled to be able to support Providence’s dynamic food scene,” says Knead co-founder Adam Lastrina. “All these businesses were right where we were two years ago.”
Some of the fellow residents of Providence Kitchen Collaborative will include Brown Paper Bounty and Long Live Beerworks, which will open and operate a brewery just a few steps away from Knead’s new shop.
Not only can the Homer Simpson in all of us get a delicious, gourmet doughnut, he can grab a craft beer just a short walk away as well. What could be better?
