Krispy Kreme is partnering with McDonald’s on a small-scale test to offer three doughnuts, including the iconic Original Glazed doughnut, at McDonald’s restaurants in Louisville, Ky., and the surrounding area. This is Krispy Kreme’s first partnership with McDonald’s in the US as Krispy Kreme constantly looks for new ways to increase access to fresh doughnuts through our delivered fresh daily network.
I’ll have fries with that!
Things are about to get sweeter for fans in Derby City. Starting Oct. 26, McDonald’s is beginning a small operations test of select Krispy Kreme doughnuts at nine restaurants in Louisville and the surrounding area.
We’re serving up three of Krispy Kreme’s most popular treats:
- The Original Glazed Doughnut: a melt-in-your-mouth doughnut covered in Krispy Kreme’s signature glaze. The doughnut that started it all.
- The Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles Doughnut: a chocolate-y twist on the original, hand-dipped in chocolate icing and covered in rainbow sprinkles.
- The Raspberry Filled Doughnut: glazed and filled with a sweet, yet tangy raspberry jelly. A classic fan-favorite.
The doughnuts will be available all day, in-restaurant and drive-thru only at participating test locations while supplies last. Customers can order them individually or enjoy six packs of the Original Glazed or a variety of flavors. And the best part? In true Krispy Kreme fashion, they’ll be delivered fresh daily to restaurants.
McDonald’s is always looking for ways to give our fans more of what they crave, and we often conduct tests to inform future menu decisions. This small-scale test will help us understand how offering new bakery items like Krispy Kreme could impact operations in our restaurants.
So go ahead, Louisville – it’s time to try a Krispy Kreme doughnut with your fav McCafé coffee order. We can’t think of a better way to start your morning… or afternoon… or evening…
