Krispy Creme Donuts – Opening Sat, July 6th, 2013 in Cancun!
For years, residents of Cancun and the Riviera Maya have been buying Krispy Kreme products from friends returning from trips to Mexico City, so to have the delicious donuts available right here in the area is sure to be an instant hit.
The store will be the 100th location for Krispy Kreme franchise partner Taco Holding, a successful group who won the 2012 International Franchisee of the Year for Krispy Kreme. Taco Holding also has Krispy Kreme locations in Mexican cities like Mexico City, Cuernavaca, Monterrey, Leon, Puebla, Aguascalientes and Guadalajara, and we’re thrilled that they’ve finally made the leap to the east coast.
With a modern café-style design, the shop will feature hot donuts (what Krispy Kreme is known for!), a kids’ play area, a drive-thru and barista specialists to prepare your order.
Krispy Kreme President Jeff Welch stated, “We are excited to announce the opening of Mexico’s 100th Krispy Kreme store in the city of Cancun. Taco Holding has done a great job of bringing the one-of-a-kind taste of Krispy Kreme to our loyal customers throughout Mexico. In December of last year, Taco Holding opened the 500th international Krispy Kreme store in the city of Aguascalientes, so we have celebrated two important milestones in Krispy Kreme history with our Mexico team and look forward to celebrating many more in the years to come.”
“In 2004 we started a dream with the opening of the first Krispy Kreme store in Mexico,” stated the Executive Director of Krispy Kreme Mexico, Ramon Soler. “Today, nine years later, we confirm our confidence in the Mexican market with our store number 100, in Cancun, Quintana Roo. Together, we have consolidated Krispy Kreme’s leadership in our country and today we celebrate this great success.”
The new shop is located in Plaza Cumbres (carretera Cancún – Chetumal )
