If you’ve got a sweet tooth for doughnuts, you’re in for a treat. Several Charlotte restaurants are offering free desserts and deals in honor of National Doughnut Day.
(And for the record, there are two doughnut holidays: The first is Friday, June 2, and the second on Sunday, Nov. 5, which means double the celebrations and double the deals.)
Luckily for Charlotte locals, there are over 30 doughnut shops in the area to indulge in the delectable dessert. Here’s a list of which ones will be offering deals (or freebies) in honor of the holiday:
