Krispy Kreme hosted festivities throughout the night to their loyal fans who camped out for the opening day promotions.
“I am extremely excited for the grand opening of Krispy Kreme in Rohnert Park.” Davis Boyd, a senior at Sonoma State said, “I have been satisfied customer of this franchise for as long as I can remember. When I came to Sonoma State as a freshman in 2015, I was disappointed at the fact that the nearest Krispy Kreme was over an hour away. But now, I can experience the nostalgia I always get when I take my first bite out of their delicious and sweet glazed donuts.”
The franchise owners live in Santa Rosa which is why they chose Rohnert Park as the location in order to be closer to home. Jennifer Willey, the marketing consultant with Krispy Kreme, said “Rohnert Park is a great community, and we think we’ll fit into the fabric of that community well. We’re excited to open up and meet all our new neighbors.”
Krispy Kreme was founded in 1937 and its mission statement is, “To make the most awesome doughnuts on the planet every single day.”
According to their website, Krispy Kreme strives on giving back to their community which is done through fundraising and philanthropic work. Krispy Kreme offers fundraising for any organization. Non-profit or partake philanthropies can contact Krispy Kreme to help raise money for their organization.
