“After five years in business, we felt it was time to update our website and make it more user friendly,” said Bennett’s owner Bob Grissinger, former local morning disc jockey C. David Bennett. “We are really happy with the new site as it reflects our brand much better than our previous design.”
The new site includes background on Bennett’s management, the shop’s full menu, fresh coffee guarantee, photos of Bennett’s famous doughnuts that are made with zero trans fats, location information, contact links and maps.
The site was designed by Bennett’s management team.
Bennett’s Fresh Roast has prided itself on its hand-cut-from-scratch doughnuts made daily and being the only Fort Myers’ shop to serve fresh roasted coffee from the finest beans resulting in the most flavorful and freshest cup of coffee around. For the past five years, the Bennett’s team has been known for unveiling delicious new doughnut concoctions from flavors including maple bacon, pumpkin spice, maple toffee crunch, s’mores and more. The shop has also become known for surprising offerings like its limited sale (which sold out) of Kopi Luwak coffee, often called “cat-poo coffee” after the prized bean from Indonesia that’s eaten by wild civets, passed through the animal’s digestive tract, and then collected and processed for brewing.
Located off West First Street at 2011 Bayside Parkway, Bennett’s Fort Myers’ location is housed in a bright and colorful 2,000-square-foot shop inside a lovingly restored 1943 former home. The shop will open its second location on Sanibel Island in December.
In addition to fresh roasted coffee and hand-cut-from-scratch doughnuts, Bennett’s also offers fresh desserts from Grissinger’s own recipe book including praline bread pudding, lemon bars and pies, giving area residents an alternative for afternoon treats. Bennett’s also features packaged whole bean or ground coffees, breakfast muffins, oatmeal and breakfast sandwiches. On the weekends, Bennett’s Strata (a layered baked breakfast dish) is a regular sellout. Tea lovers can choose from a large variety of Harney & Sons Fine Teas.
Lunch offerings, including paninis, soups, sandwiches, three signature salads and Bennett’s ‘Chicken & Donut’ and ‘Donut Dog,’ are available Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bennett’s is open Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
