Krispy Kreme has revealed plans to open a new factory near Naas, Co Kildare in August.
Last week, the American doughnut brand posted a job advertisement seeking a new food production manager at a 'new factory opening, Naas, Ireland.'
The advert stated that the Naas Factory will be its first site to produce and deliver its 'awesome' fresh doughnuts with its own fleet and that it 'needs your expertise to be it, new brand ambassadors, to lead the way'.
According to the job role, the position will be based in Blanchardstown first, for induction and training and then, when it opens its doors in Naas in August, the new recruit will move to its home site in Co Kildare.
The ad stated, 'As the new food production manager, you will play a key role to this production unit being successful. You will be responsible for leading product quality and quantity, maintenance and factory performance supporting the general manager.'
First Irish Outlet
On 27 September 2018 Krispy Kreme announced that it opened its first Irish outlet in north Dublin.
On the eve of its opening, a spokesperson for the new store in Blanchardstown said that "over 300 people queued up to be some of the first customers to cross the line in the early hours."
Introduction To Retail Stores
In April this year, Krispy Kreme announced that it had expanded in to a select number of Tesco Ireland stores nationwide and Circle K's Kill North store on the N7.
The first phase of Krispy Kreme’s introduction to retail stores involves 20 locations, including Tesco Extra stores in Clarehall, Naas, Maynooth and Balbriggan, and Tesco superstores in Tallaght, Stillorgan, Bloomfields, Bray and Ballybrack, along with Circle K Kill North.
‘Hot Now Experience’
This summer will also see the introduction of a selection of new stand-alone stores (to be announced) including the flagship ‘Hot Now Experience’ store in Dublin’s Central Plaza, Dame Street.
The Hot Now experience means Krispy Kreme will be serving 'piping hot, freshly made glazed doughnuts fresh off the line'.
