Krispy Kreme to open at Gateway, Durban

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will open a new store at the Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga, KwaZulu-Natal in March 2017. Gateway, voted Best Shopping Centre by the Daily News Your Choice Awards in 2014 and 2015, will be home to the first Krispy Kreme store outside of Gauteng.

“Krispy Kreme South Africa is proud and excited to ‘share the joy that is Krispy Kreme’ with Durban and create wonderful memories,” says Krispy Kreme South Africa CEO, Gerry Thomas.

Following the flagship store launch in 2015, four additional stores have opened this year with locations at the Sandton Gautrain, the Mall of Africa, Clearwater Mall and Sandton City respectively. Still with two more stores to open in 2016 at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in late November and Eastgate in December, the company plans to reach even more South Africans before year-end.

“The Durban store position is well situated, as the smaller fresh stores planned for Durban’s other major shopping centres will be supplied out of the Gateway factory production store. The store will be located at G350, Palm Boulevard,” concludes Thomas.
