Only Location in the Valley Serving Fresh-Baked Mini Donuts
Just in time for spring, Whitestone REIT (NYSE: WSR) (“Whitestone” or “the Company”) announces that Crave Grounds at The Mercado will be rolling out a new smoothie and mini donut menu. The neighborhood coffee and fresh donut shop has become a favorite of locals at Scottsdale Ranch on East Via Linda and Mountain View Road.
“We are overwhelmed by the community support of Crave Grounds,” said owner Jim Murphy of Phoenix. “It’s fantastic getting to know the customers and regulars who frequent our shop and creating smoothies and donuts just for them.”
Beginning April 1, Crave Grounds’ new Smoothie Menu will feature a special Banana Strawberry blend and several tempting wild berry-flavored drinks. Murphy is also updating the current mini donut menu to include selections such as Arizona Sunset, a cranberry walnut donut with orange icing.
The shop offers about 40 custom donuts that customers can watch as they are baked to perfection each day. Unique toppings such as Apple Pie, Blueberry Pancake, Cinnamon Roll, French Toast and Maple Bacon keep customers coming back for more.
“Little Donuts, Big Coffee” is the motto of Crave Grounds and they deliver with offerings that are big on taste.
“It’s the only place in town to buy mini donuts and our special locally-roasted blend of coffee,” Murphy said. “Our house blend is made just for Crave Grounds.”
The shop serves customers in a casual, conversational seating area in a 700-square-foot space.
