Randy’s Donuts newest location is only a few months away from opening. The 60-year-old chain’s new Downey store will maintain a completely different look when compared to the Randy’s recent additions in Century City, El Segundo, and Hollywood. The owners created the forthcoming shop as a replica of the original Inglewood location, complete with a drive-thru and slightly smaller 26-foot giant donut sign. Randy’s in Downey opens this July. Randy’s Downey takes the company formula a step further by adding indoor seating and a much-needed update to the coffee and espresso drink menu.

Since fall 2017, Randy’s opened four SoCal locations and only yesterday announced future stores for San Francisco, Berkeley, San Jose, and Palo Alto in 2020. Eater reported in 2018 about the twelve prospective locations throughout Southern California and two for Las Vegas. Plus, the company is planning to open even more in the Philippines and South Korea. However, most of these new shops won’t have the giant donut on top of the shop.
