National Doughnut Day is the first Friday in June.

A day later - Saturday, June 7 - will mark the debut of the fourth Federal Donuts shop. It's coming together now at 701 N. Seventh St., on the corner of Seventh Street and Fairmount Avenue in West Poplar.

Partners Tom Henneman, Bob Logue, Steve Cook, Michael Solomonov and Felicia D’Ambrosio enlisted Boxwood Architects to fit out 2,000 square feet with a 40-seater. It has a parking lot.

FedNuts on Fairmount will open at 7 a.m. with baharat-spiced cake doughnuts in both fancy and Hot Fresh flavors, and drip and cold-brewed coffee by Elixr Coffee Roasters. Fried chicken service begins at 11 a.m., seven days a week. Closing time is 7 p.m. or sell-out.

On opening day from noon to 4 p.m., FedNuts will sell fried chicken doughnut sandwiches ($6 including tax) and will partner with Little Baby's ice cream to create hot doughnut ice cream bombs ($5 including tax).

FedNuts also has shops in South Philly, Center City, and University City.
