Krispy Kreme has announced that it will introduce the first store in Africa in the next few weeks. The location of the new store will be in Rosebank, Johannesburg – more details to be disclosed soon.
The move is part of the company’s five-year commitment to launch 31 shops in the next five years.
Shoppers will have an option to choose from a wide variety of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and locally roasted coffee flavours for a treat.
Gerry Thomas, CEO of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts South Africa said, “We are delighted to bring the joy of Krispy Kreme doughnuts to the ‘City of Gold’.”
“We have found the perfect spot for our first store and will announce its exact location closer to the opening.”
Krispy Kreme has been serving its customers with a unique blend of doughnut and coffee flavours since 1937.
Currently, Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed doughnuts, great tasting coffee and other assorted sweet treats can be found in more than 1,000 shops in 24 countries.
“The city of Johannesburg is widely considered the window into the African market and is a melting pot of cultures, races as well as nationalities.”
“It was only natural than that Africa’s economic hub be chosen as the first home for the first ever Krispy Kreme store in Africa,” said Thomas.
