Krispy Kreme Faces Reality of Sorts
While Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. has been around since 1937, it really didn’t become a household name until it went public in 2000. Since then, it has seen some pretty big changes, including opening its first international location in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada in 2001. Since then, it now operates 1000 locations in the US and all over the world.
While growth has been positive, they were forced to face another reality and that came in form of debates over some health concerns. The first one was when the government decided to take on the trans fat debate and that sent ripples through the entire baked goods industries all over the country.
By eliminating the trans fats as an ingredient in all of their products was a bit of a challenge, but they seem to have survived that situation pretty much unscathed. Unfortunately, that was not the only assault they were forced to endure. The second one was not going to be quite as easy since it involved a huge part of their signature products; doughnuts. The latest battle was over carbohydrates and like the trans fats, it presented a huge problem for the baking industry.
All through the struggles, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. continues to make some of the most amazing tasting doughnuts and coffee to millions of satisfied customers all over the world. They have become one of the biggest household names in the doughnut business and this was not an accident, they only have one primary competition these days for the top in the donut business and that would be Dunkin Donuts
