Hot Diggity Donuts is located in the once crumbling Jones-Green Shoe Company building located at 1213 Hull Street. Originally built in 1911, the building underwent a massive renovation to preserve the historic structure. In fact, the building had already begun to collapse at the rear, and significant shoring up was required to save the building. The historic renovation was an adaptive reuse with Hot Diggity Donuts set to open on the first floor, and four residential apartments at the rear and upstairs. Hot Diggity Donuts has hired just shy of half of its new employees from the local neighborhood adding badly needed local jobs and a new food and drink option for the Hull Street corridor.
