The scene is set for what can truly be described as a bonanza of doughnuts when the flagship Krispy Kreme store opens to the public on Saturday (June 3) at 1 Waterloo Road in St Andrew.
The excitement is all about the Krispy Kreme doughnuts, famous and popular throughout North America, now landing in Jamaica.
Lisa Lake, group CEO for Restaurant Associates Limited (RAL), franchisees in Jamaica for Krispy Kreme, said, “Krispy Kreme is famous for producing our amazing doughnuts; especially the melt in your mouth Original Glaze. Each donut is made fresh daily and made from scratch. We will be launching with twelve varieties of donuts and will also offer Krispy Kreme’s Chillers fruit flavoured beverages as well hot and cold specialty coffee drinks.
“It’s all very exciting. We are bringing our one-of-a-kind famous Hot Light Experience to Kingston, Jamaica. When the ‘Hot Now’ sign is lit up at a Krispy Kreme store, you can experience a hot Original Glazed doughnut straight off the line – so fresh it’s still warm! When the light is on, it’s on!”, Lake explained.
With the finishing touches being put on for the grand public opening on Saturday, Bradley Perkins, brand manager for Krispy Kreme says the excitement is at fever pitch for the product and for the range of generous prizes and surprises being laid out.
