Krispy Kreme is opening a new type of store.
The chain is debuting its first redesigned store in more than a decade on Tuesday. The Concord, North Carolina, store will feature milkshakes and ice cream sandwiches, as well as updated display cases, digital menu boards, and tech enhancements.
"This new shop experience honors the heritage of Krispy Kreme while at the same time acknowledging and addressing the rising expectations of our customers," Andy Skehan, Krispy Kreme's North American president, said in a statement. "From our time-tested process of producing the world's most loved doughnuts to our new Original Glazed Doughnut-infused ice cream, we're very excited for what the future holds."
Here's a look inside the new shop.
The shop will have an expanded menu, including ice-cream sandwiches and milkshakes topped with mini doughnuts.
Customers can build their own custom doughnuts, mixing and matching five different glazes, 10 toppings, and five drizzle flavors.
The shop will offer online ordering, delivery, and dedicated parking for mobile pickups.
In addition to the 45 shops that Krispy Kreme plans to open across the U.S. through 2020, the company is also remodeling locations.
