About Krispy Kreme, History and Headquarters Information


Krispy Kreme was founded in the year 1937. The company has been active for almost 81 years now. The founder of the company is Vernon Rudolph. The founder of the company, along with his brother Lewis Rudolph had started working for his uncle, who had owned a general store in Kentucky, USA. The store used to sell a wide variety of goods, including doughnuts as well. In the year 1933, a secret recipe for yeast-raised doughnuts was developed. The secret recipe had come from a French chef. The founder of the company used to sell doughnuts mainly via bicycle only.

The company was made as a family business when it moved to Nashville, and therefore, other members of the family also started to join the company and help meet the company's demands as well. In the year 1937, the company founder had sold his interest in the business and thus opened a new doughnut shop as well, located in North Carolina, USA. This new shop used to sell the products directly to supermarkets and also individuals as well. Therefore, the company Krispy Kreme was formed. During the 1950s, the company had started to expand, and by the 1960s, the company was very well-known in the southeast part of the USA. In the year 1976, the company was taken over by Beatrice Foods of Chicago and was made a wholly owned subsidiary as well. A group of franchisees again had purchased the company back from Beatrice Foods in the year 1982. The company had begun another phase of rapid expansion in the 1990s, opening stores outside the southeastern USA where most of their stores were located. Then in the year 2001, the company had opened its first store outside the USA in Ontario, Canada. In the year 2000, the company had filed for its first IPO or Initial Public Offering and was transformed into a limited public entity by the year 2001. In the year 2016, JAB Beech - which was a German investment firm, had announced it made an offer to purchase the company for more than $1.3 billion. Later that same year, the acquisition had come into effect. Then in the year 2017, the company had moved its corporate operations to North Carolina, USA, while Winston-Salem will remain the World Headquarters and maintain the Krispy Kreme Support Centre as well. The headquarters of the company is based on 370 Knollwood Street. The name of the place is Winston-Salem, while the name of the state is North Carolina, USA. The pin code of the area is 27103.

    I have been a customer of Krispy Kreme over 50 years. I have never been treated as disrespectful, and poorly as I was in the drive through I Memphis TN. On Elvis Presley Dr. On 04/27/22. I was cursed at by the customer service attendant. Charged $10.20 for six stale Raspberry Jelly Donuts. Over charged they would not connect my purchase to my phone number horrible experience. Training won’t help this location. I’m forever traumatized by this experience. Dr. Lampkin

  • Hillside Illinois location says:

    No one has returned my call in regards to the unprofessionalism and very unorganized Krispy Kreme located in hillside il. John is the general manager an hires his realtor friends and doesn’t care about how employees are treAted. I know for fact Krispy Kreme isn’t aware of how they are being represented. They give people old coffee or wrong coffee. Assistant manager doesn’t know how to make donuts properly. Majority of the time the doors are locked so customers are force togo through drive through. Class x felons working there toxic work environment which force good working good professional background workers like myself to have no choice but to quit. It’s truly unfair.

  • Tanya Wells says:

    I am so devastated. The only day y’all sell the chocolate glazed when I get there I’m told that they are sold out. I was so looking forward to those donuts. I went twice the first time I waited 45 minutes in line and had to leave to go back to work. Then soon as I got off to go back I was told they were sold out. Please please next time order more chocolate glaze. So you don’t run out.

  • James J. McGrath says:

    I just yesterday bought a dozen mixed doughnuts. I was very disappointed with the quality. I had 6 mixed and 6 raise doughnuts, the doughnuts were only covered on the top and the bottom was not coated. I also didn’t think they were very fresh Also the person who waited on me seem like I was annoying her. thank you for your time.
