A new donut shop is open in Upper St. Clair, and its name is familiar to Pittsburghers who vacation in North Carolina's Outer Banks.

Duck Donuts began service this week at the Siena at St. Clair shopping center. 

Donuts are made-to-order. Customers choose from a variety of toppings ranging from chocolate icing to maple icing with bacon. The shop also has a viewing area where you can watch your donut being made. Coffee, tea, espresso, breakfast sandwiches and donut sundaes are also on the menu. 

The chain got its start in 2006 with shops in Duck and Kitty Hawk, N.C. and quickly expanded to other locations in the Outer Banks. There are now 33 shops, including four in Pennsylvania.

The Upper St. Clair location is owned by Pittsburgh natives Andrew and Kate Jarusinsky.

“In 2015, while vacationing in the Outer Banks, I learned about franchising opportunities and decided to bring the unique concept of serving warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts to our hometown of Pittsburgh,” said Andrew Jarusinsky in a release. “We are excited to celebrate the opening of our first location, sharing the tastes of the Outer Banks with those in Pittsburgh!”
