1-Feb-16 – Free doughnuts for a year will be a dream come true for three people, granted by the River North bakery with the 1968 made-in-Paris doughnut truck.

To celebrate its third anniversary, Firecakes Donuts on West Hubbard Street is giving a sealed envelope to anyone who buys at least six doughnuts between now and February 7. Three envelopes contain a special Golden Donut prize, entitling the winner to a free dozen doughnuts every month for one year. The rest contain a gift certificate for a free Old Fashioned Donut with the customer’s next purchase.

“Our third anniversary is very special to us,” says Firecakes co-owner Karen Fox. “We’ve just opened our third location…and our passion for making delicious doughnuts from the finest ingredients is as strong as ever.”

The six doughnuts can be purchased at the River North location, the new bakery at 2453 North Clark Street, or from the doughnut truck.
