Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation held a grand opening of its first Neighborhood Shop and Kremery in Knightdale on August 3.
The first customer was awarded one free dozen Original Glazed(R) doughnuts every week for a year; the next 11 customers were given a free dozen Original Glazed doughnuts every month for a year. In addition, the first 100 customers took home an official Krispy Kreme T-shirt. Customers enjoyed free Kool Kreme soft serve samples, and other Krispy Kreme treats throughout the day.
The 1,750-square-foot store, located in the Shoppes at Midway Plantation, will feature Krispy Kreme’s unique offerings, including its one-of-a-kind doughnut varieties, signature coffees and espresso drinks, Krispy Kreme Chillers(R) and iced beverages. The new Knightdale location will also offer Krispy Kreme’s brand new Kool Kreme(R) soft serve menu. Offered in Very Vanilla and Deep Chocolate, Kool Kreme soft serve is available in traditional cones, shakes and sundaes, all paired with a toppings bar. Customers can taste a few Krispy Kreme specialties, including the Company’s signature doughnut sundaes, which come in chocolate cake, strawberry cake and Original Glazed. The Artic Avalanche(TM) combines Kool Kreme with a candy mix-in.
