Krispy Kreme's first Irish store has officially opened its doors.
Located in Blanchardstown Centre, the Theatre store is open 7 days a week and is one of the brand’s biggest outlets in Europe, featuring an impressive front of house area including Krispy Creations, a custom doughnut creation station, capacity to seat 77 in-store and a 24-hour drive-through.
Over 300 eager doughnut fans lined up outside this morning to visit the doughnut retailer on its opening day, with the first 100 in the queue receiving a complimentary Hot Original Glazed doughnut straight off the line.
At 7am sharp, the ribbon was cut by Cllr. Ted Leddy, representing the Mayor of Fingal, Krispy Kreme CEO Richard Cheshire and Ireland Country Director Alex Drysdale, and the store was officially declared open.
Commenting on the store opening, Alex Drysdale, Ireland Country Director, Krispy Kreme, said:
“We are overjoyed to have people from all around Ireland share the excitement of opening day with us in our first ever Irish store. On day one alone, we have welcomed families, couples, friends and local workers stocking up on our delicious doughnuts for the office. We would really like to thank all those who joined us today and sent in their good luck wishes. We must also extend our gratitude to the local authority, our Blanchardstown neighbours and our incredibly hard-working Krispy Kreme colleagues who helped to make opening day a roaring success. Our doors are now officially open 7 days a week and we look forward to welcoming even more customers here soon.”
