KRISPY KREME could be about to open a second store in the centre of Dublin.
The Irish capital was brought to a near-standstill when the doughnut chain opened its first store in Blanchardstown last September.
Originally opened with a 24-hour drive-thru service, Krispy Kreme eventually had to scale back the store’s opening hours.
The move came after a surge in demand for the sugary snacks saw cars queuing for hours to get their hands on some Krispy Kreme doughnut.
These traffic jams led to increased noise and air pollution with many motorists deciding to while away the time waiting by beeping their horns.
As a result, Krispy Kreme was forced to introduce an 11:30pm closing time, much to the chagrin of Dublin’s dedicated following of doughnut lovers.
Despite this, the Sunday Business Post is reporting that the success of Dublin’s first Krispy Kreme store has convinced the company to further expand its Ireland operations.
The doughnut giant is now eyeing up another property closer to the city centre which could offer extended opening hours to help cater to the capital’s impressive nightlife.
