Randy’s Donuts El Segundo is set to open by month end. There will be a special vip and media tour on Monday, Aug. 27. The store will open to the public by month end. They are one of a number of eating establishments racing to get their doors open at Apollo Landing Plaza.
“At Randy’s we have been making every donut by hand for over 60 years using many of the same equipment and baking tools for decades,” said owner Mark Kelegian via a release. “Because our donuts are handmade, every donut is unique, leaving no two exactly alike.
The company offers 35 different types of donuts. Pricing runs from .95 cents to $1.35.
Randy’s was built in 1953 by Robert Wendell. Along the chain of former owners, one decided to change the name to Randy’s after his son. The name stuck and the business was off and running. It is consistently voted one of the best donuts in America on a number of polls.
Randy’s, with the giant donut on the roof, has appeared in numerous movies and tv shows. It has been seen on Iron Man, Entourage and The Tonight Show just to name a few.
El Segundo will be the third location for the company.
Excited To Be Here
Kelegian is excited to be heading into the area.
“With the opening of the third location in El Segundo, we look forward to bringing our freshly made donuts to the South Bay neighborhoods” he says, “and being involved with the community.”
