Krispy Kreme has just announced its opening date for their 100th store, and Paul Vernon of oe:gen has already mentally eaten every single doughnut on the menu.
Sources say that Nottingham's Krispy Kreme store are offering free doughnuts for a year to the one first in the queue on Wednesday, August 23 at 10am. It is not yet clear whether Paul can shift his meetings around, but we're sure he'll get there somehow.
Neil Williamson, Krispy Kreme's operations director, said:
2017 is a very special year for us at Krispy Kreme as it’s our 80th birthday year. It’s about to be made even more special as we reach our 100th UK store milestone with the opening of our new Nottingham outlet. The reception from locals has been brilliant so far and we can’t wait to meet everyone on the 23rd!
And if Nottingham is anything like the rest of the country, it'll be a long wait in the queue for the double-glazed grub. According to our sources, Norfolk doughnut-lovers queued for over 10 hours when their store opened — starting their quest for doughy-satisfaction at midnight, no less.
Anyone who is familiar with oe:gen will know that Paul's favourite thing to do is bring Krispy Kreme doughnuts into his meetings. We wish him luck on the 23rd!
If you like Salesforce tips and Krispy Kremes as much as Paul, join us at our Salesforce User Group event on Thursday 17th August, where there will be plenty of both.
