Krispy Kreme – a restaurant chain known mainly for its doughnuts and coffee – is expanding its menu to include ice cream sandwiches and milkshakes, writes Today.
According to the report, Krispy Kreme has just opened the first of a new type of store in Concord, North Carolina. The new shop is the first in a plan that includes 450 additional new shops. 45 new locations in the US are expected to open their doors within the next year. The brand is also remodeling all 350 U.S. stores that are currently open.
The expanded store menu will include items like Scoop sandwiches (ice cream sandwiches with doughnuts instead of cookies), which will be available with a variety of topping options like vanilla, chocolate sprinkles, cookie crumbles, coconut, caramel, and a fruity, crunchy cereal. There will also be hand-spun milkshakes, all made with a doughnut-infused ice cream based.
Consumer service enhancements will include online ordering, delivery, in-shop self-service pickup, dedicated parking for mobile order pickup, and an expanded drive-thru with two lanes and digital order confirmation.
