Are you ready to embrace a franchise opportunity worth a million smiles?

Owning a Krispy Kreme doughnut franchise could be the sweetest move you have ever made!

In 1937, an entrepreneurial young man named Vernon Rudolph rented a small warehouse in Winston Salem, North Carolina so he could make doughnuts to sell to grocery stores. As it turns out, those doughnuts smelled so good that people walking past wanted to buy them. Vernon cut a hole in an outside wall and started selling them to passersby.

Business began to boom!

Vernon perfected the proprietary doughnut-making equipment and the secret recipe to be used in his new chain of shops, ensuring that every single doughnut made at a Krispy Kreme shop was deserving of the Krispy Kreme name.

Now, with decades of franchising experience, Krispy Kreme has become one of the most beloved doughnut and coffee franchises on the market with worldwide brand recognition. As the leading specialty retailer of premium-quality doughnuts, including our signature Original Glazed®, our vision is to be the worldwide leader in sharing delicious tastes and creating joyful memories. Krispy Kreme franchisees share our vision and benefit from our time-tested leadership and doughnut franchise experience in bringing our premium brand to more people in more places than ever before.
