The iconic doughnut franchise Krispy Kreme's "Hot Light" will shine at its second Greenville location this January and is offering one lucky diner free donuts for a year.
Krispy Kreme said they will open the brand new Woodruff Road shop on Tues. Jan. 22 at 6 a.m., with the signature hot Original Glazed and several other doughnut flavors ready to whet the appetite of Upstate diners.
Eager doughnut fans hoping to get the first glazed treat at the grand opening will also be rewarded with prizes. The first customer in line will get one dozen Original Glazed doughnuts free every week for a year.
The next 99 customers in line will get one dozen Original Glazed doughnuts free every month for a year. The first 100 customers in line will also get a commemorative T-shirt.
The Winston-Salem-based company announced the newest location's plans in November. The new 2,300-square-foot shop is located near the intersection of Woodruff Road and Interstate 385 and will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week.
The first Krispy Kreme opened its doors in Greenville in 1946, and 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.
