Finally, some sweet news. Krispy Kreme on Tuesday opened its latest New York City shop at the corner of Broadway and 96th Street on the Upper West Side. The new doughnut shop comes after the company opened a new store in Harlem and a massive flagship in Times Square this summer, part of a Krispy Kreme expansion in the city.
“Krispy Kreme doughnuts really have a way of delighting and we’re passionate about bringing that energy to our customers, especially in a city that’s seen so much in the last several months,” Christine Kobrynich, director of operations at Krispy Kreme, New York. “We’re excited to ramp up the sweetness in the Upper West Side and continue backing the resurgence of New York City.”
In addition to the beloved Original Glazed doughnuts, visitors can enjoy seasonal flavors like Caramel Glazed and Double Salted Caramel Crunch, served until November 22, a full doughnut menu, and hot and cold beverages. Social distancing and safety measures will be enforced in the store and delivery orders will be sealed and bagged individually, with contactless drop-off available.
The 45,000-square-foot Krispy Kreme flagship in Times Square opened in August and offers 24-hour access to fresh doughnuts and the chance to watch the sweet treats being made (as well as a two-foot glaze waterfall). It’s also home to the largest” hot light” sign of any location.
By the end of the year, Krispy Kreme will have seven locations open in New York City, including in the Financial District, on 37th Street and 6th Avenue, at Penn Station, and on Fordham Road in the Bronx.
