PHOENIX — Popular Portland-based Voodoo Doughnut is bringing its sweet treats to metro Phoenix.

The doughtnuts shop announced Thursday that it is opening a location in Tempe on the southwest corner of Rural and Apache roads.

“We’ve been exploring the Arizona market for a while as part of our continuous growth strategy and we’re excited to finally bring our doughnuts to Tempe,” Voodoo Doughnut CEO Chris Schultz said in a press release.
