The famous ‘Hot Light’ that announces when the doughnut line is running and the doughnuts are hot. There is a double storey dine in facility with seating for over 100 guests and a drive through. The 86 new staff have been trained and are ready to serve. Today they celebrated with their families at the new store, in preparation for the Grand Opening this Tuesday 15 July 2014.
We also met these two young lads, Daniel and Nathan, out the front today, who are lined up to be the first customers when the store opens. They’ve been lined up since this morning at 5am on Sunday 13 July 2014. They have all their camping gear and are settled in for their 53 hour long wait until the store opens at 10am on Tuesday 15 July 2014. You’ve got to give these young guys full marks for dedication and perseverance! Let’s hope the weather is kind to them. Apparently their parents are dropping in supplies to them while they wait.
Why are they waiting you ask?
Well, to celebrate, Krispy Kreme are doing giveaways and prizes for eager guests! The first in line to buy a dozen doughnuts gets a Golden Ticket for a year’s supply of Original Glazed doughnuts! Second in line to buy a dozen doughnuts will get a Silver Ticket for a 6 month’s supply of Original Glazed doughnuts, and third in line to buy a dozen doughnuts will get a Bronze Ticket for a 3 month’s supply of Original Glazed doughnuts!
The next 100 people in line to buy a dozen doughnuts get a one month’s supply of Original Glazed doughnuts each!
We’re not sure exactly how many donuts all of this equates to but I’m sure there will be enough to satisfy these winners and their family and friends.
The new store has a fully glassed viewing area which will enable visitors to watch the world famous Original Glazed doughnuts roll hot off the largest Krispy Kreme doughnut making line in Asia Pacific. We’re sure many kids would be fascinated to watch what Cookie Monster would call a “Sometimes food” being made.
It’s a world-wide tradition that the opening of a new Krispy Kreme store is a huge celebration with people lining up for hours to be among the first through the doors.
Krispy Kreme in SA will be a first in Australia, offering a range of tantalising desserts and hot and cold beverages too.
