Krispy Kreme has announced that it has recently opened 18 new locations across the country.
The American brand also named two new partners: Applegreen (Krispy Kreme is now available in nine of its stores) and the Plaza Group (Krispy Kreme is now available in four of its locations).
The donut-maker noted that it has recently added four new locations to its partnership with Tesco, and a new location at Circle K’s Kilmacanogue service station.
Speaking about the brand’s expansion, Declan Foley, Krispy Kreme’s country manager for Ireland, said, “We are really excited to be welcoming Applegreen and the Plaza Group as new partners, and we continue to expand our presence in Tesco and Circle K stores.
“The investment required in these cabinets represents a significant capital expenditure for our business and helps deliver a magical brand experience. This expansion, coupled with our new-store openings, gives our fans a wider reach, as we move beyond the Leinster area.”
Naas Manufacturing Plant
Krispy Kreme noted that it recently opened a manufacturing plant in Naas, Co. Kildare, ‘ensuring the doughnuts are made fresh and delivered daily.’
The company highlighted that it is planning to open a new store at the Square Tallaght this Friday (16 December).
According to the retailer, the recent announcement is part of a wider expansion plan, and it intends to ‘create a significant number of jobs in Ireland’ with the introduction of more locations in 2023.
