Mighty-O’s opens in August with free donuts and superhero-themed contest

Mighty-O donuts is about to open its doors in Ballard.

The local company, with organic donuts made-from-scratch, has settled into their new storefront location on NW Market and 17th and is inviting Ballard to a grand opening weekend Friday, August 14th through Sunday, August 16th.

Free donuts are in store for everyone who stops by during the weekend-long event. Plus, Mighty-O hosts a superhero-themed contest in which those dressed as their favorite superhero will be entered to win a donut a day for a whole year.

“Our customers are our superheroes—they’re the reason we are here and we can’t thank them enough,” said founder Ryan Kellner. “We are excited to celebrate the grand opening of our new Ballard café with our community and look forward to giving away as many free donuts as possible for everyone to enjoy.”

Just like its Wallingford store, Mighty-O’s Ballard café is committed to sustainability and its community, supporting local farmers, achieving zero waste, and donating all leftovers to the homeless. Additionally, Mighty-O donuts are made-from-scratch using all organic, non-GMO and plant-based
ingredients that are individually sourced.

“It’s important to us that our donuts not only taste good, but do good,” said Kellner. “That includes being cholesterol free, pesticide and chemical free, and working to support sustainability and community causes.”

The 2,500 sq. foot café was designed to be a welcoming hangout with seating room for 50 people inside and a dedicated parklet on the street, making Mighty-O Ballard among the first of cafes in Seattle to offer the community amenity.

With a nod to the neighborhood’s roots, Mighty-O chose a maritime and industrial aesthetic to pair with the space-inspired design. The shop also features a large exhibition bakery so onlookers can watch the donuts being made or take a behind-the-scenes tour.

The Ballard café’s store hours will be Monday through Friday: 6 a.m.–6 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday: 7 a.m.– 6 p.m.
