Krispy Kreme signs deal for 20 new restaurants in Southern California

RBR Staff Writer Published 22 January 2014

Krispy Kreme has entered into a development agreement with its existing franchisee Great Circle Family Foods to develop 20 new outlets in Southern California in the coming seven years.

The planned stores are expected to feature the brand's new small factory design, including a drive-thru and the signature Hot Light.

These shops will also offer over 12 varieties of Krispy Kreme's doughnuts, including the signature hot Original Glazed, as well as a complete menu of coffee, Krispy Kreme Chillers, iced beverages and specialty drinks.

Great Circle Family Foods Chief Executive Officer Roger Glickman said, "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."

Great Circle Family Foods, a franchise partner since 1998, currently operates 11 Krispy Kreme outlets in Southern California.

Founded in 1937, Krispy Kreme operates over 800 locations in more than 20 countries around the world.
