Glazin' moving out of Royal Square

After eight months at the corner of Duke and King streets, hipster doughnut shop Glazin' is on the move to a bigger yet-to-be-announced location in York City.

The shop, which also sold six-packs in the Royal Square neighborhood of York City, closed Thursday, owner Rob Burrito said.

On Friday he said the business was in the process of moving the various kitchen supplies and other items to the new location, which Burrito said he plans to open "ASAP."

"It turned out to be pretty popular," he said of his doughnut business. "It got to a point where we needed to grow."

He said he's not ready to announce the location of the new spot.

In addition to Glazin', Burrito owns Otto's Kitchen & Cocktails at 19 N. George St. in York City; he also owns, as one might guess from the last name he took in place of his original family name of McGrath, the five Roburrito's establishments around York and Lancaster counties.

The property Glazin'  is leaving, at 101 S. Duke St., is owned by Royal Square Development & Construction. Burrito and company leased the Glazin' property and the building next to it, which was formerly the troubled Allison's bar, and were using the kitchens in both to crank out doughnuts, he said.

Now Royal Square is looking for new tenants for both properties, said Dylan Bauer, that company's vice president of development. Bauer, who expressed his dismay that doughnuts would not long be quite so near his offices right around the corner in the 100 block of East King Street, said Royal Square is working with Rock Commercial Realty to fill the spots.

"There’s two restaurant opportunities there," he said.
