Krispy Kreme has signed a franchise deal with Restaurant Associates Limited, a multi-brand franchise operator, which will see the opening of the first shop in St Andrew by the end of the first quarter of 2023.

Lovers of doughnuts and sweet treats will soon be able to experience the internationally acclaimed Original Glazed doughnut, along with other sweet treats and coffee, at the first Hot Light Theater Shop in Jamaica, located at the intersection of Waterloo Road and Hope Road in St Andrew. Guests will be able to witness the journey of the freshly made doughnuts from start to finish through the Doughnut Theater and will be able to eat their hot and fresh doughnuts immediately after they are made.

Lisa Lake, group CEO.

Group CEO Lisa Lake shared: “Adding Krispy Kreme to our portfolio of international brands is a great fit as we will now be able to provide our loyal guests with the perfect sweet treat experience. We are excited to execute Krispy Kreme’s omni-channel model, bringing Krispy Kreme doughnuts to our guests in a variety of convenient ways – at our shops or delivered fresh daily to partner locations.”

Shortly after opening the flagship shop at Waterloo Road, Restaurant Associates Limited intends to also open two more Krispy Kreme shops in Kingston and St Andrew. 

Sabrena McDonald Radcliffe, head of sales & marketing, also added: “Guests will be able to experience the joy that is Krispy Kreme, with dozens of freshly made doughnuts for their sharing occasions and celebrations. The Hot Light Theater Shop will certainly be a hit, giving a front-seat view to what makes Krispy Kreme Doughnuts exceptionally delicious.”
