Krispy Kreme has begun the next phase of its New Zealand expansion with the announcement of two new Auckland stores.

The world-famous doughnut and coffee chain will open a brand-new store in the CBD’s Chancery Square, and a site at the Domestic Airport.

Andrew McGuigan, CEO of Krispy Kreme Australia and New Zealand, said he was thrilled to be bringing more stores to Auckland.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by Kiwi demand for Krispy Kreme and are excited by the success the Manukau store has experienced since opening in February,” he said. “We can’t wait for more Kiwis to have access to our delicious, fresh doughnuts and hot barista-made coffee.”

Their expansion follows just five months after the Manukau store launch, which was the largest Krispy Kreme opening ever executed worldwide. The flagship store currently serves 10,000 customers a week and will transfer fresh doughnuts hot off the line to the two new locations daily.

Krispy Kreme’s doughnuts will be available in the inner city this coming November. Doughnuts can also be delivered direct to their door via UBEREATS.

Krispy Kreme’s new Auckland stores will create more than 60 new jobs, in addition to the 140 staff currently employed at their Manukau site.
