Don’t tell Homer Simpson, but York is to get a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop.
A new store selling nothing but the sugary confections will open at York Designer Outlet at 10am on November 4.
The new shop design is based on the baker’s iconic green dotty box and will be ready to fuel busy shoppers’ spending sprees at the outlet.
On offer will be Krispy Kreme’s signature original glazed doughnut plus 15 other doughnut varieties such as the Nutty Chocolatta doughnut, filled with Nutella. Look out too for caramelised biscoff and strawberries and kreme.
Traditionally bought by the dozen to share with family and friends – or eat yourself before slipping into a sugar coma – Krispy Kreme doughnuts are known throughout the world.
And you can get a taste of the action before the store even opens. In the weeks leading up to the big day, Krispy Kreme teams will be in York city centre offering hundreds of doughnuts to lucky passers-by to sample.
Judith Denby, chief marketing officer at Krispy Kreme, said: “We are extremely excited to be bringing the joy of Krispy Kreme to York next month, and can’t wait to welcome in busy shoppers to grab their dozens.”
