Krispy Kreme Says Hello Mindanao
When in Davao, do as the Davaoeños do—take a dip in pristine waters, go on a nature hike, and have a taste of the delicacies distinctive to the city.
But hold on to that list as another must-experience is about to be added along with the many things you can delight in at the heart of the vibrant metropolis. Prep your palates and get ready to say “Maayong Pag-abot!” as Krispy Kreme turns its Hotlight on at the Royal City of the South this October 20, 2012.
Spanning more than 690 shops in 21 countries, Krispy Kreme has been exciting the world with a distinct confectionery experience brought by its delectable variety of offerings, piloted by the Original Glazed Doughnut, which has won the world over since 1937.
Since it first opened its doors in the Philippines six years ago, the world-famous doughnut and coffee brand has been making Filipinos fall in love with its range of signature treats. To date, Krispy Kreme Philippines now boasts of 31 stores in Luzon and two stores in Visayas—all constantly swelling with eager patrons who found that unrivaled delight brought by its products.
Hence, Krispy Kreme continues to bolster its sweet success in the country through expanding with two stores down south. Located in Mindanao’s premier shopping destinations—Abreeza Mall and The Annex at SM City Davao, the newest branches further Krispy Kreme’s milestone in the country, as well as the celebration of its 75th year of bringing delicious tastes and fond memories worldwide.
“In whichever part of the country, you will find that Filipinos have a naturally soft spot for sweets,” notes Mark Gamboa, Marketing Manager of Krispy Kreme Philippines. “Having already satisfying our markets in Luzon and Visayas, we decided that we couldn’t leave Mindanao out, and so we are now finally bringing the confectionary goodness of our brand to the south as we expand in the region.”
To complete the Krispy Kreme experience for Davaoeños, its Abreeza Mall branch will feature the Baked Kitchen, where the brand’s Baked Creations are freshly rolled out every day. Meanwhile, its outlet at The Annex at SM City Davao—its first 4th drive-thru store in the country set to operate in its own extended hours from 6am to 1am—will boast of the Doughnut Factory, where thousands of everyone’s much-loved Original Glazed Doughnuts are produced daily.
And to satiate its Davao market’s tastes some more, Krispy Kreme assures that its range of offerings in both branches will be halal-certified—veering away from flavors made with pork to appeal to the Muslim market.
Also, in true Krispy Kreme tradition, the first people—one from each of the eight (8) neighboring cities—to ring the cash register gets a year-long supply of the brand’s Original Glazed Doughnuts and Signature Coffee. Additionally, the second and third customers to fall in line will be rewarded six and three month’s worth of the same delights, respectively. The 4th to 100th purchasers are also in for treats, as they will be getting supplies of these Krispy Kreme favorites to last them a whole month.
The eight (8) neighboring cities in Mindanao included in this promo are Davao Oriental, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Zamboanga del Norte, Agusan del Norte, General Santos, Lanao del Norte, and Cotabato City.
With an extensive pastry selection ranging from sweet to savory and espresso drinks that go from hot to cold, Krispy Kreme is all set to thrill every Davaoeño’s taste buds with its one-of-a-kind goodness and distinct mouth-watering delight.
Serving world-class doughnuts and coffees since 1937, Krispy Kreme made its way to the hearts of Filipinos when it opened its first branch in the country back in 2006. Today, Krispy Kreme has outlets in 35 different locations nationwide, with hotlight stores in SM Mall of Asia, Greenhills Shopping Center, Festival Supermall Alabang, Bonifacio High Street, Cebu IT Park, Abreeza Mall and The Annex at SM City Davao.
