Mississippi NFL Player Brings Gourmet Doughnuts to Flowood
JACKSON, Miss. – Oakland Raiders Guard Gabe Jackson and his wife, Eryn Jackson, are opening Mississippi’s first location of The Dapper Doughnut right in the heart of Flowood. Jackson, a Liberty, Miss., native and former Mississippi State University football player is set to open the store in January 2020 at the Lakeland Commons.
“Mississippi is home, and we have always wanted to return home and possibly start a business of our own one day,” said Gabe Jackson. “Fortunately, The Dapper Doughnut, has given us the opportunity to finally make that happen.”
In preparation for its January 2020 opening, The Dapper Doughnut will be gifting free hot samples at the 21st Annual Christmas In the Park at Winner’s Circle Park on December 7th from 2 to 8 p.m. Find their booth, watch their doughnut-making process and receive a holiday-themed Dapper bag of three hot, mini doughnuts.
“The first time we tasted The Dapper Doughnut, it was amazing,” said Jackson. “We knew this delicious innovative idea of a HOT Mini doughnut belonged in the South.”
The Dapper Doughnut is always hot, fresh and made right in front of you. They offer a variety of unique flavors such as Bananas Foster, S’mores, Birthday Cake and Blueberry Lemon. The Flowood location will be the first in the company’s history to offer a “Build Your Own Doughnut” option. The Dapper Doughnut also provides customers a selection of extended beverages, coffee and soft-serve frozen desserts.
The Dapper Doughnut®, established in 2015, has grown to 31 stores across the United States, Canada and the Dominican Republic, with seven stores to open in 2020. The Dapper Doughnut is a high end, exciting shop for hot mini donuts made fresh to order with the mission to love their customers, team members and community by providing fun memorable experiences with great tasting food.
