Gone are the days when we have to rely on pasalubongs from friends and relatives from Manila to have a taste of Krispy Kreme doughnuts because they are opening not one...not two...but three branches here in Davao City! Dabawenyos can finally have their Krispy Kreme hot and freshly made in Davao. These are the first branches in Mindanao and the range of offerings are Halal certified. Their branches in Abreeza and SM City Ecoland will be opening tomorrow, October 20,2012 while the third branch at SM Lanang Premier will open next month. Be sure to visit them tomorrow and be the first in line as they will be giving away one year long supply of the Original Glazed Donuts and Signature Coffee/ They will be giving one from each of the neighboring cities which are Davao Oriental, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Zamboanga del Norte, General Santos, Lanao del Norte and Cotabato City.
Krispy Kreme has been exciting the world with a distinct confectionary experience brought by its delectable variety of offerings, piloted by the Original Glazed Dougnut, which has won the world over since 1937. They were brought to the Philippines in 2006 and since then expanded to 35 different locations nationwide.
Yesterday they had a media launch and we were lucky to be invited. We were able to take a peek inside the Abreeza branch located at the ground floor near Robinsons which features the Baked Kitchen. It is where the Baked Creations such as the kruffins will freshly roll out every day.
We also visited the SM City Annex branch which is bigger around 300 sq m and has a drive through feature, the fourth in the country. It is set to operate from 6am to 1am daily and will boast of the Doughnut Factory, where thousands Doughnuts will be produced daily.Customers will be able to view how the doughnuts are made.
The Krispy Kreme Executives graced the event.
Ms. Carolyn Salud Managing Director shared that "It is really not about all the stores but it's really us being able to come into the community and serve our fans with fresh hot doughnuts"
While the Chairman Mr. Jim Fuentebella also talked about the brief history of Krispy Kreme and the "what if" mentality which inspired them to be the successful company that they are today.
The Hotlight is on so what are you waiting for?
