Hot off the press…


Yet another taste of the USA is set to be sampled in New Zealand when the country’s first Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee chain store opens in Manukau on February 28.

When running at full capacity, the new store will be able to create 4,320 donuts every hour Australia and New Zealand CEO, Andrew McGuigan, says.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the demand from Kiwis for Krispy Kreme and we are now extremely excited to be finally launching in New Zealand, making it the 35th country in the world to enjoy our much-loved sweet treats.

“Our new Auckland store will offer a retail shop and drive-thru and we expect as many as 180 new jobs to be created as a result.”

With giveaways – including a year’s supply of doughnuts for the first through the door – and more on the table, queues are expected to begin forming from February 26.
