For Krispy Kreme's 78th birthday, the customers are getting the presents.
On Friday, July 10, any customer that buys a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts can get the second dozen for only 78 cents. That second dozen can only be Original Glazed – none of the fancier stuff.
Krispy Kreme opened its first location in Winston-Salem, N.C. in 1937. It wasn't until more than 50 years later in 1989, however, that the company opened its first retail-only store (previous locations had focused on making doughnuts to be sold at grocery and convenience stores).
In February, the chain celebrated its 1,000th store opening with a new location in Kansas City, Kan.
