The US-based doughnut chain Krispy Kreme has opened its first Irish outlet in North Dublin, according to Newstalk.
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 of yesterday morning.
Councillor Ted Leddy, representing the Mayor of Fingal, Krispy Kreme CEO Richard Cheshire and Ireland country director Alex Drysdale were on site to cut the ribbon.
The shop, open seven days a week, will feature a 24-hour drive-through and offers 16 doughnut varieties, as well as milkshakes, tea, coffee and more.
"We are overjoyed to have people from all around Ireland share the excitement of the opening day with us in our first ever Irish store,” said Alex Drysdale.
"On day one alone, we have welcomed families, couples, friends and local workers stocking up on our delicious doughnuts for the office.
"We would really like to thank all those who joined us today and sent in their good luck wishes."
