Walkers Welcome as Zombee Donuts & Bakeshop will open its doors for 24 hours Halloween for non stop treats and absolutely no tricks. Zombie Bakery

Owner Vanessa Guillen of Zombee Donuts & Bakeshop said she has had success beyond her expectations since the shop opened in February of 2015.Guillen runs  the shop with her mother, Marie and the two have been a dynamic duo in bringing the most dangerously delicious baked goods to Fullerton.

The theme of the bakeshop is unique featuring gourmet donuts decorated with a spooky  character. Vanessa says, “Customers are receptive to the theme, they like that we are directed  toward zombies, we get a lot of walking dead fans.”

The bakeshop has a variety of donut flavors that can go fast especially on the weekends as well  as hot coffee, iced coffee, milk, juice and other beverages to compliment any baked treat. Zombee Donuts features a vegan donut of the week, sometimes with maple or caramel as well  as the classic cake donut with vegan fudge.

Guillen explained that each donut is crafted to perfection and all have delicious flavors from chocolate to red velvet,  maple as well as a variety of cream filled donuts that are just to die for. The Maple Bacon Bar is the most popular according to Guillen, giving a salty and sweet flavor with a nice  crispy bacon strip on top.

The owners decided that every season they will feature two new donuts and on occasion bring  back a donut for a day or a couple of days if that donut was only there for a limited time.

“We  don’t want to get rid of any of the donuts that people come in for all the time,” Vanessa said.

By offering tasty seasonal treats, it gives the hungry walkers a chance to sink their teeth into some fresh new flavors.

Challenges for Vanessa have been up there with the stress of opening up a new business, in the  beginning the days were long. However, the key moments for the bakeshop have made it all  worth it including being featured by The Hornet, the Los Angeles Times and coming up getting a visit from LA-based radio station Jack FM.

Zombee Donuts was even asked to be a part of National Donut Day, through their vendor back  in June. “The fact that we are doing better than we forecasted and we have regulars is  awesome, we have been very blessed.” Vanessa happily reported.

Zombee’s hours are 6 a.m.–6 p.m. everyday, closed on Tuesdays and Sundays from 7 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
