SPOKANE, Wash.--Zombies have taken over pop culture in recent years thanks to popular TV shows and movies. Now, zombies are taking over a new Spokane business.

Staff at Dawn of the Donut cannot get enough of zombies so they decided to sell something that celebrates the theme--donuts.

“They're something that will literally never die out," said employee Jay De Boer.

Their sign along North Division Street reads, “Zombies inside, keep out.” The decor inside reflects a crime scene created by the living dead.

Employees began working on different kinds of donuts this week before they open August 2nd. Some of the donuts they are working on include the El Diablo, which is covered with ghost chili flakes.

"We want to get involved in the community, be a part of Spokane, make this a tourist attraction," said De Boer.

Nothing is too morbid for the store. Employees said they are all about the baking dead. They carry donuts look similar to a brain. Bakers are working on donuts that resemble arms and coffins.

“It’s definitely a possibility of a zombie apocalypse," added De Boer.

Dawn of the Dead is located on the 3400 block of North Division near Bridgeport.
