Blue Star butters up Beaverton this fall 2017
Portland, Ore. – Portland’s beloved gourmet donut shop will be opening its seventh Oregon location at Progress Ridge Townsquare in Beaverton, located among the businesses sharing the parking lot adjacent to SW Barrows Road near the popular Cinetopia Theater. The Progress Ridge location will carry the full selection of brioche, buttermilk, and cake donut favorites, as well as special Portland-exclusive donut flavors, and serve local roasting darling Coava Coffee’s unique “Blue Star Blend” drip coffee. Blue Star and Coava were recently voted #1 in Willamette Weekly’s 2017 “Best of Portland” awards.
“There have been so many requests over the past few years from fans in Beaverton and Tigard, it’s been a dream of ours that’s now finally a reality,” adds Katie Poppe, CEO and Blue Star owner. “We couldn’t be more excited. To all the fans responsible for all those emails and not-so-subtle hints over the years, we heard you! We’re coming for you! And we’re bringing donuts.” Blue Star will be joining the ranks of popular Portland brands like La Provence, Little Big Burger, and New Seasons Market, further increasing the local flavor in Progress Ridge. Once the grand opening date is confirmed, the benevolent bakers will announce a free giveaway on their social media sites.
ABOUT BLUE STAR DONUTS
Blue Star Donuts, founded and owned by Katie Poppe and Micah Camden, is an artisan donut shop born in Portland, Oregon. After a much-anticipated opening in 2012, Poppe and Camden expanded to a second location in Southeast Portland in May 2014, and recently opened a location in the Portland International Airport in November 2016. The Portland-grown shop has since expanded to six locations in Portland, and two locations in Los Angeles, California.
The brioche-based donuts have quickly become a fan favorite, recognized as the best in Portland and the United States by Conde Nast, The Washington Post, and USA Today. Their gourmet gems have gained international attention on the Food Network, and were recently featured on the May 2016 cover of Bon Appetit Magazine.
