Krispy Kreme said the new store's look and menu is a taste of what's to come to other locations across the country. The Concord location is one of 45 new stores the chain is planning to open through 2020 while it also remodels its existing stores, according to a press release. In other words, the new Scoop Sandwiches, milkshakes, and customized donuts are likely heading your way soon, though Krispy Kreme hasn't said exactly when.
"This new shop experience honors the heritage of Krispy Kreme while at the same time acknowledging and addressing the rising expectations of our customers," Andy Skehan, president of Krispy Kreme's North America division, said in a statement. "From our time-tested process of producing the world’s most loved doughnuts to our new Original Glazed Doughnut infused ice cream, we’re very excited for what the future holds."
Hopefully, this ice cream-infused future comes sooner rather than later. In the meantime, nothing's stopping you from making DIY donut ice cream sandwiches.
