NEW STORE OPENING: Krispy Kreme Gateway

American Doughnut-chain, Krispy Kreme, opened this morning at Gateway Theatre of Shopping.

Excited Durbanites queued along Palm Boulevard on Tuesday 14 March, to be first to taste the delicious Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

First in line was Umhlanga resident, Ismail Desai. He said, “I’ve been waiting here since 11am yesterday. I had help from my family who kept me company through the long wait.”
Desai won FREE dozen doughnuts every week for a year, while various other prizes and goodies were given to the hundreds of people who waited patiently for the grand opening.

The Umhlanga store is the first outlet of the franchise outside of Johannesburg. Several other shops are expected to open later this year around the country.
