GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

After 66 years, the "Hot Now" light will soon be shining at two Krispy Kreme locations in Greenville.

The sweet treats franchise announced Thursday that a second location will open near the intersection of Woodruff Road and Interstate 385.

Although the 2,300-square-foot doughnut factory will not open until mid-January, the company said that applications are being accepted for the 50 jobs that are available at the new location. More information about the jobs can be found at sweetplacetowork.com.

The Woodruff Road location will feature a drive-thru and more than a dozen varieties of the tasty treats. It will also offer a full menu of chilled drinks and signature coffee blends.

Since 1946, Greenville has only had one Krispy Kreme location, which was one of the first five bakeries opened by the company. The Greenville location opened for the first time on Cleveland Street before moving to Augusta Street and settling into its current location on Pleasantburg Drive.

Recently, Glenn Reese, who owns the Spartanburg Krispy Kreme location, announced that he plans to open a location in Anderson.
