Longtime Westside Donut Shop Taking Over Stan’s Donuts

Westwood Village Stan’s Donuts to be taken over by Primo’s Donuts

By Sam Catanzaro

A longtime Westside donut shop will be taking over the recently-shuttered Stan’s Donuts in Westwood Village.

Primo’s Donuts, located on Sawtelle Boulevard, has announced they are taking over the shop that Stan’s Donuts occupied in Westwood Village at 10948 Weyburn Avenue. In April Stan’s Donuts closed after 55 years of serving generations of hungry customers from both far and wide after owner and founder Stan Bernan retired, partially due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“COVID-19 made the decision happen sooner, but I hope that you will remember how our donuts made you smile for many years to come. Thank you for being by my side for all these years,” Berman said in April. “Over the years each of you have touched my life, you have visited me in the early morning hours and the late nights. Your support and friendship has meant more than you know.”

According to Ralph and Celia Primo, founders and owners of Primo’s Donuts, when they heard the news of Berman’s retirement they were upset due to the two shops’ shared “vision” of baking fresh donuts every morning.

“We were so upset when we heard that Stan’s had decided to close its doors early due to COVID-19. There aren’t many family-owned mom and pops like us left that bake donuts fresh every morning, and we have always felt that we shared the same type of customers and vision for our businesses. The location in the heart of Westwood Village is so iconic, and we are honored to have a chance to open our doors here. We wish Stan the best in his retirement,” Ralph and Celia said.

One of Los Angeles’ most historic doughnut joints, Primo’s Donuts has been serving Westiders from their shop at 2918 Sawtelle Boulevard for 64 years.

A firm opening date has not yet been set for Primo’s Donuts Westwood Village opening.
