Lakewood loves the Original House of Donuts.
The Original House of Donuts is a world-famous Lakewood institution. In the summer of 1959, Bob and wife Marilyn created The House of Donuts. With their shared love of donuts, H.O.D. was born with one goal, to make fresh handmade donuts from scratch every day. Thirty years later, the secret H.O.D. recipe was perfected, with millions served over the past 50 years. In 2013, to restore H.O.D., Tom Peterson was passed the secret recipes and know-how. Now with one foot in the past and one in the future, The Original House of Donuts is setting out to continue its legacy of serving you since 1959.
In February, Buzzfeed.com included H.O.D.’s maple bar in its list of “33 Doughnuts You Have To Try Before You Die.” The Original House of Donuts is one of the places you have to try during your championship experience.
