Good news for doughnut lovers across New England.
On Monday, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts announced that the company has plans to open four doughnut shops in New Hampshire and three in Maine over the next few years.
“The demand for Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee continues to grow throughout New England, so we are very happy to bring this iconic brand to New Hampshire and Maine,” Patricia Perry, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ Vice President, Global Franchise Development said in a press release on Monday.
The company known for its light and fluffy doughnuts will be partnering with Cort Mendez, owner of NH Glazed, LLC to build the different shops in New England. Mendez owned 10 Five Guys franchises in New Hampshire and said the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts fan base in the area is already very strong.
“Our team is excited to bring this iconic brand to the north and share that signature taste of Krispy Kreme’s sweet treats and premium coffee,” said Mendez in the press release. “We already have a nice following in both states, so we’re confident Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will become a fast favorite!”
Currently, the only Krispy Kreme in the New England area is at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut.
New England previously had several locations, but they all closed in the early 2000s.
