Ohio’s first and only Donut Trail was unveiled today by the Butler County Visitors Bureau.
The Butler County Donut Trail highlights small, family-run donut shops and invites visitors to explore Butler County through donuts.
Participating donut shops along the trail represent a combined 227 years of donut-making experience and include:
- Jupiter Coffee & Donuts, 5353 Dixie Highway, Fairfield
- Kelly’s Bakery, 1335 Main St., Hamilton
- Martin’s Donuts, 4 W. State St., Trenton
- Milton’s Donuts, 3533 Roosevelt Blvd., Middletown
- Mimi’s Donuts & Bakery, 2267 Millvile Ave., Hamilton
- Oxford Doughnut Shoppe, 120 S. Locust St., Oxford
- Ross Bakery, 1051 Eaton Ave., Hamilton or 4421 Hamilton-Cleves Road, Hamilton
- Stan the Donut Man, 7967 Cincinnati Dayton Road, West Chester Twp.
- The Donut Spot, 5148 Pleasant Ave., Fairfield
A Donut Trail passport is available for donut fans to log their journey through Butler County, which boasts one of the highest numbers of donut shops per capita in the Midwest, according to the visitors bureau.
Each participating donut shop displays a coded decal. Those who fill in the passport with all correct codes earn a complimentary Donut Trail t-shirt.
Tapping into the sweet enthusiasm for these sugary confections was an easy choice for the Butler County Visitors Bureau, according to its executive director, Mark Hecquet.
“The Donut Trail is a great way to explore Butler County,” Hecquet said. “With a tremendous number of independently run donut shops, creating the Donut Trail was a fun way to highlight some of the unique and off-the-beaten path businesses that make Butler County a great place to live and visit.”
