Krispy Kreme to JHB

Rosebank, Jo’burg, to be Krispy Kreme’s first SA stop

Global doughnut company and coffee retailer Krispy Kreme has announced that its first store in SA will be opened in Rosebank, Johannesburg, at the end of November.

In May, the company signed a development agreement with local company, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts SA, to open 31 Krispy Kreme shops in the country over the next five years. This marks the company’s first venture into Africa.

A more brand-aware middle class with rising incomes are attracting other US consumer-facing giants such as Starbucks and Dunkin’ Brands who will also be expanding into the country.

The Krispy Kreme store will have an option of 16 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, as well as a wide variety of locally roasted coffee flavours.

Krispy Kreme has been serving its customers since 1937. Its footprint now extends to 1,000 shops in 24 countries.
