Building demolished to make way for Krispy Kreme


By Monroe Roark
Times Correspondent 

  A major change in the landscape in Stockbridge has occurred as developers move closer to opening a new Krispy Kreme store in the city.

Construction crews now have a level surface with which to work at the future Krispy Kreme site as the old building was completely demolished within the past few weeks.

  The building formerly on the site, which most recently housed a Hong Kong King Buffet and for many before that a Shoney’s restaurant, has been completely demolished to make way for a brand-new facility to house the doughnut shop at 120 Hwy. 138, at the corner of Daniel Drive.

  The official groundbreaking took place in late October, with many dignitaries from the company as well as city government on hand for the announcement.

  The store is expected to open in the next few months, with nearly 70 full-time and part-time jobs, according to a statement from the city. Krispy Kreme will be incorporating its new prototype interior and exterior design for the store, which will be approximately 2,300 square feet and include a 24-hour drive-thru window and the famous “HOT” light.

  In celebration of the grand opening, Krispy Kreme will provide the first 100 customers with free doughnuts for a year and the first 150 will receive a commemorative t-shirt on opening day.

  As with other locations, Krispy Kreme’s fundraising program will offer local schools, churches, sports leagues, community and civic groups the opportunity to raise funds for their organizations.

  The store is currently hiring through the company’s web site,
