What’s the only thing happier than a fat kid in a candy store? A fat kid in a doughnut shop!
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc., announced a development agreement with Inversiones DBA-KKD de Costa Rica, SRL (“Inversiones”) to open 10 Krispy Kreme shops in Costa Rica in the next five years.
“Costa Rica’s rapid market growth and consumer demand for sweet treats makes this the perfect time for Krispy Kreme to expand in the country,” said Dan Beem, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ Senior Vice President and President – International. “Our partners have a successful history and we are thrilled to partner with them to bring the iconic Krispy Kremeexperience to the country.”
The principal owner of Inversiones is Desarollo de Negocios Internationales, SRL, of which Miguel Hernandez is the managing director. Inversiones is also partially owned by 2.5 Investments, LLC.
Hernandez said Costa Ricans will find Krispy Kreme shops to be their new favorite spot for something sweet and a premium cup of coffee.
“We are happy to bring the joy of Krispy Kreme to Costa Rica,” said Hernandez “Once people try our doughnuts, they will not believe how long they have lived without having a freshly made Original Glazed® doughnut.”
