Despite the impending opening of its first outlet in the Republic of Ireland at Dublin's Blanchardstown Centre in September, American donut chain Krispy Kreme has said that it has no official plans to open a Northern Irish store for the time being.
In a statement released to The Belfast Telegraph, a company spokesperson said, "Krispy Kreme does not currently have official plans to open in Northern Ireland and is focusing on the Dublin store launch in autumn 2018 for now."
However, Krispy Kreme also emphasized that this does not mean that it will not open an outlet in Northern Ireland at some point in the future, with the spokesperson asserting, "This is not to say that a Northern Ireland branch is not up for consideration. We will be sure to let you know if those plans change."
