Donuts Delite opens new store in Rochester



Rochester, New York — In order to celebrate the grand opening of Donuts Delite West at 674 West Ridge Road, a ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 12 p.m. Monday.

Robert Malley, the family of Donuts Delite founder, current owner Nick Semeraro, Rochester Mayor Malik Evans, and others will be on hand to ring in the new era for the business.

The owner of Salvatore’s Pizzeria, Salvatore “Soccer Sam” Fantauzzo, purchased the property in 2009 and reopened the shop in 2010.

According to officials, Donuts Delite would be expanding to the West Ridge Road site back in January 2020.

Unfortunately, the opening was delayed to the pandemic.

“COVID delays with equipment and more has been a challenge,” Semeraro said. “I’m excited about Monday’s grand opening, our new Donuts Delite West looks amazing.”

“I love Rochester history and it’s so great that we are able to turn the famous Dog House Bar back to its original use as a donut shop,” Fantauzzo said.

The original Donuts Delite at the corner of Culver Road and Empire Boulevard was operated by the Malley Family from 1958-2005.

Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m., doors open for customers on Monday.
