“The joy of Krispy Kreme has inspired many fond memories and wonderful stories since 1937. We are humbly honored that Krispy Kreme is known as a classic American brand with generations of loyal fans,” said Jenny Bellanca, vice president of operations for Florida Family Foods, an authorized franchisee of Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation. “Join us in celebrating 79 years of spreading joy and honoring our guests who remain at the core of our mission by sharing delicious tastes and creating joyful memories.”
July 13, 1937: Vernon Rudolph bought a secret yeast-raised doughnut recipe from a New Orleans French chef, rented a building in what is now historic Old Salem in Winston-Salem, NC, and began selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts to local grocery stores. The delicious scent of cooking doughnuts drifted into the streets, and passers-by stopped to ask if they could buy hot doughnuts. So, he cut a hole in an outside wall and started selling hot Original Glazed doughnuts directly to customers on the sidewalk. Isn’t that just the coolest?
