UPDATE: Firecakes opened for business today, Jan. 31! Their hours are 8 a.m. until they run out of fresh donuts.
Firecakes, a 600-square-foot donut shop opening soon in River North, Chicago, will be located at 68 W. Hubbard St.
La Madia’s and Corner Bakery’s Jonathan Fox is the brains behind Firecakes. Fox will be utilizing a heirloom recipe from his wife’s great-grandfather Billy Hobbs, who was a baker for logging camps in Wisconsin. Back then, they made doughnuts over open fires, hence the name for Fox’s doughnut shop.
