A new Krispy Kreme store is set to up in Dublin city centre
There's always room for more doughnuts.
It seems all the good news was saved for the end of 2020, and here's another thing to add to the list.
Doughnut giant Krispy Kreme will be opening a new store in Dublin city centre.
The new location will be at Central Plaza on Dame Street (the old Central Bank) where there will be a "fully glazed" unit of the popular doughnut franchise.
Since the American doughnut company arrived in Dublin in 2018, it's safe to say it's had a massive impact, with large queues becoming a regular occurrence and a 24-hour drive-thru service having to be quickly shelved because of disruption to locals in Blanchardstown.
The location in Blanchardstown proved so successful, in fact, that it was recently revealed as Krispy Kreme's best-performing store in the world, pulling in almost €300,000 in revenue every week.
Brian Moran, senior managing director of Hines, which acquired Central Plaza in 2017, said: “Krispy Kreme will bring an exciting and beloved retail experience to a whole new customer base and will be perfectly located in the heart of Dublin.
"With the Central Plaza project now nearing completion, we’re looking forward to seeing Krispy Kreme serving up its iconic doughnuts to a very expectant customer audience here in the city centre very soon indeed".
The plan is that the plaza will be one-part working space, one-part shopping and one part eating experience.
Peter Lynn, Director with Hines Real Estate Ireland Ltd, said: "WeWork, Bujo, Las Iguanas, Ginos and now Krispy Kreme are all due to start fitting out in early 2021."
