Krispy Kreme coming to Chapel Hill
In previous threads I had lamented the lack of KK stores in the Triangle and how a KK store near UNC"s campus would have a built in clientele. Well, guess what...
I'm very excited about KK coming to town, but a little bummed that it won't be a full-factory store... I always thought they should put a full KK in the space that used to be Wicked Burrito, not Noodles and Co. But given CH's restrictions on drive-thrus downtown, a larger space may not make enough money to work.
Given how progressive the UNC campus area is, I'm a little surprised that they'll be trucking in par-baked doughnuts a few times a day from Raleigh, as that seems to be a bit wasteful, and environmentally unfriendly. I imagine that's the only way they can get what they want and be on Franklin Street, but perhaps they should have picked a different location then.
I haven't had the desire to try it out, but everyone around campus seems to love it. I do wonder how the glazed would compare to a full factory store.
I'm not sure if this was on purpose, but the neon sign in the window only says "hot" rather than "hot and fresh"
