Mini Doughnut Factory, started in 2015, is a popular purveyor of bite-size cake doughnuts.

On Tuesday, Jan. 22, Mini Doughnut Factory made an announcement many fans already knew.

"Yes, WE ARE OPEN! Both of our Tampa and St. Pete locations are open and ready to serve you our delicious minis," reads the latest update posted to Mini Doughnut's Facebook page.

The popular purveyor of bite-size cake doughnuts — which started in South Tampa in 2015 — closed its two shops last month after investor Lee Kearney sued founders Patrick and Zezura Ruddell and took over management duties. The Tampa Bay Business Journal has done an awesome job of chronicling Mini Doughnut's legal woes, so start reading.

Anyhow, ICYMI, we just wanted y'all to know you can start fulfilling your cravings for these customizable morsels once again — no matter which side of the bay you call home.

"Our team can't wait to serve you!" the Mini Doughnut update continues. "We appreciate your continued support of the Mini Doughnut Factory!"
