Since early last year I have been hearing the buzz about the opening of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts here in Cebu. KK (Krispy Kreme) lovers had been talking about the opening and share the excitement over the web since the start of the year. Well, the wait is almost over fellow Cebuanos, since Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will be open at the Ayala Terraces in the last week of October. And a second branch in Asiatown I.T. Park which is a factory store that opens simultaneously with the Ayala Cebu Branch. Krispy Kreme I.T. Park branch is where the big machines are located that make the doughnuts, and yep this outlet will be open for tours- think Willy Wonka factory for doughnuts. 😉
Try closing your eyes and imagine fresh and hot Krispy Kreme Doughnuts melting in your mouth. Yum! Krispy Kreme Cebu will have the full line of Krispy Kreme products including the Original Honey Glazed, Krispy Kreme minis and the premium topped doughnuts from Kitkat to Toblerone and the newly launched M&M’s topped doughnuts. Krispy Kremes’ hot and cold Signature Coffee are also included in the line up of products that we Cebuanos will soon experience. For those who like their doughnuts savory, Krispy Kremes also is bringing the whole savory line called “Big Creations” which came about from a customer survey -Bacon and Cheese, Ham and Cheese, Pepperoni and baked doughnuts for those who want it baked. Definitely intriguing. And if you love muffins,Krispy Kremes have Kruffins- now am getting all giddy because of my excitement.
Some may be wondering why just five years after it’s first branch opened in the Philippines will it open in Cebu. Krispy Kreme Philippines Chairman Jim Fuentebella tells iLuvCebu.com,” We had to make sure that we are doing things correct and growing the brand and insulating the brand, so when we replicate and bring it out, the core definition of the brand is intact.”
A sweeter Cebu this October 2011. See you guys on the opening of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Cebu! 🙂
