A Hurts Donut Company location is coming to Fort Worth, and the Missouri 24-hour doughnut shop chain wants to make sure we know.
The company is offering “Scary Clown Delivery” of a dozen doughnuts, hand-delivered by a tall, masked clown straight out of either a horror movie or a Mardi Gras parade.
For now, the doughnuts are delivered from Hurts’ current location in Frisco. Hurts plans four more DFW locations, the next to open at a yet-undisclosed location in Fort Worth.
If you get a doughnut delivery from a scary clown, don’t turn it away: People stand in line an hour and more in Frisco for the extra-large, brightly iced doughnuts.

“October is for pranks,” Hurts writes on a Facebook page. “ … We know you know someone who deserves it.”
October is also for pumpkin, and Hurts’ Frisco store is selling pumpkin streusel doughnuts along with caramel-cream cheese.
Commenters on social media recommend flavors such as cherry cheesecake, peanut-butter-and-jelly, “Cookie Monster.” maple-bacon and “Grape Ball of Fire.”
The company already made friends in Fort Worth, selling a “Thin Blue Line” doughnut last month and giving all proceeds to the family of slain Fort Worth police officer Garrett Hull.
