The glazed donut chain submitted a proposal to open a Colorado Springs location in December.
Colorado Springs is getting a sweet surprise at the end of the year: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is coming. The chain donut company submitted a proposal to Colorado Springs government planners to open a location at 5790 S. Carefree Circle.
The plan involves demolishing the shuttered Village Inn restaurant that currently stands at the address and building a brand-new Krispy Kreme shop. The company is in the processing of buying the 1.2 acres of land and will complete the purchase next month.
According to the proposal, Krispy Kreme plans on beginning construction in August and opening in December. They plan for the new building to have a two-lane drive-through and 36 parking spots. The entire building will be 3,547 square feet.
This would mark 17 years since Krispy Kreme left the Pikes Peak region. The franchise opened a location at the Citadel Mall in May 2002, but it closed in January 2006, along with other locations in the state.
Soon enough, though, you'll be able to eat all the Krispy Kreme glazed donuts you care to in Colorado Springs. Get your hands on monster donuts during Halloween and get some free sweet treats during Krispy Kreme's National Doughnut Week.
Krispy Kreme is a national chain with roots in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. While best known for their glazed donuts, the chain also sells donut holes, fritters, and specialty coffee.
While you wait for Krispy Kreme to open in your backyard, you can still find them at locations in Lone Tree and Thornton.
