Mark your calendars! Krispy Kreme has announced the grand opening date for its first location in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

What is Krispy Kreme?

Krispy Kreme is an American multinational doughnut company founded by Vernon Rudolph, who bought a yeast-raised recipe from a New Orleans chef. The first Krispy Kreme to open outside of the US was in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada in December 2001.

Though they’ve had a Canadian presence for over 20 years, this will mark the first Krispy Kreme location in Winnipeg. They currently have 7 locations in Ontario, 5 in Quebec, and one in British Columbia.
