Can’t get enough doughnuts? Krispy Kreme has announced plans to open 20 more shops across Southern California over the next seven years.
Shops will be coming to Los Angeles, Orange, Imperial, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Ventura counties, according to Lafeea Watson, Krispy Kreme’s public relations manager. Specific locations will be decided by Great Circle Family Foods, which already operates 11 franchises in Southern California.
“We are thrilled to be growing our business in Southern California,” said Roger Glickman, CEO of Great Circle Family Foods. “This commitment for an additional 20 stores is a reflection of our success with the Krispy Kreme brand, our outstanding system-leading same store sales growth and our confidence in the small factory shop model.”
The new shops will have Krispy Kreme’s classic “small factory” design and will feature drive-through windows.
Krispy Kreme can expect some competition from Dunkin’ Donuts, which will expand into Southern California in 2015.
