Congrats Europeans!

Your getting your first Krispy Kreme.

Krispy Kreme to Add Pounds to Bottom Line
Tue Aug 5, 9:49 AM ET Add Business - Reuters to My Yahoo!


By David Jones

LONDON (Reuters) - Fast-growing U.S. chain Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc is moving to Europe in October with the opening of a doughnut "factory" at London's upmarket Harrods department store, the group said on Tuesday.

The company, which makes 7.5 million hot glazed doughnuts a day and runs over 300 retail stores in North America, launched a five-year program to build 25 stores in the major towns and cities of Britain and Ireland.


Don Henshall, head of the group's UK operations, hopes his product, all made in the store, will mirror the explosive growth of coffee bars in Britain, especially as the group has no immediate competition here in the doughnut market.


"In Britain, the doughnut market is a market without a brand," Henshall said in an interview with Reuters.


He said cut-throat competition among coffee chains and tough trading at Britain's pubs and bars could make it slightly easier to find sites in Britain.


The group, based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina (My home for 7 years...), announced plans to come to Britain last November but warned it might take 18 months to find a site.

The link with Harrods, which will provide a separate street access to the doughnut shop for early-morning trade, has accelerated its opening program.


The London store will be only the company's second store outside North America. The first was in Sydney.


In addition to Britain and Australia, the group has targeted Japan, South Korea (news - web sites) and Spain for overseas expansion.


Krispy Kreme has retained a 34 percent stake in the UK franchise operation, with the rest held by private investors. It said it does not plan to raise equity for UK expansion.

A few months after Montreal, we are getting our first Krispy Kreme factory in Quebec City this fall as well! They were giving boxes of doughnuts a few weeks ago to promote the shop's opening and I had the chance to taste my first Krispy Kreme doughnut. Oh my! They are delicious!

Are they allowed to call it "Krispy Kreme" in Quebec? I figure they'd have to call it something like Crème Crispée in order to keep the language police off their backs.

Krispy Kreme RULES!!!!!!! I love me some Krispy Kreme!

Krispy Kreme is better than sex if you ask me.

There is a factory around here, it's open 24 hours. Well the drive thru anyway the lobby is open until 12pm. I go in there all the time and watch doughnuts roll off the assembly line. My favorite glazed with chocolate icing on top. MMMMMM

Enjoy Krispy Kreme Europe!

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Krispy Creme IMO is not that good. People talk like if there are fireworks going off when they eat them. They are way too small, way too expensive for a dozen( considering the size of the doughnut).
