Singapore was once deserted… of glazed doughnuts. Now the hunger’s over. As part of the worldwide goal of the famous American doughnut brand Krispy Kreme, which is to have at least 900 international shops by the end of the 2017 fiscal year, they recently launched its first store in Singapore.
Ahead of the opening time, fans gathered at the Tangs Orchard Basement, waiting for the store’s grand opening, dying to taste its ultimate original glazed doughnut — the flavor which ruled the taste buds of the people for 75 years. And Krispy Kreme sure knows how to thank it supporters.
Those who waited patiently received a golden, silver and bronze ticket. A golden ticket is worth a supply of a dozen glazed doughnuts each month for a year, silver ticket for six months and a bronze ticket for a month. To return the overwhelming love of Singaporeans of their doughnuts, Krispy Kreme plans to visits different schools and offices to give free original glazed doughnuts. (Singaporeans can vote for their offices to be visited by going to the Krispy Kreme’s website.)
In the first day of its opening the Facebook page of Singapore’s Krispy Kreme had collected a surprising 16, 864 likes already. Krispy Kreme International President Jeff Welch was so happy to the enormous response of the Singaporeans to the opening of the first ever Krispy Kreme in their country.
Mr. Welch also said that they had enthusiastic acceptance for their products throughout Asia. Andy Chaw, the CEO and owner of Star360 group, believes that the Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnuts are like nothing that they have ever experienced. He was the one who partnered with Krispy Kreme to make this famous American doughnut dream come true to all Singaporeans.
