When it comes to Krispy Kreme representation, New York lags behind an uncounted but undoubtedly high number of mundane suburbs and podunk towns, much to its detriment. More specifically it contains just a single tiny outpost, which you can find at Penn Station. That's not exactly sufficient for an alleged cultural hub.
But that will all come to a change in early 2020 when the donut chain erects a 24-hour, 4,500 square-foot location in Times Square. According to Eater, this new restaurant will make donuts on-site in full view of customers, which may make you roll your eyes if you're jaded, but that's not something they currently do at their sole NY location. Other features at the coming attraction include "stadium-style seating," a takeout window, the "world's largest hot light" to let you know when the donuts are fresh, ambiguous sounding immersive digital elements, and a glaze waterfall
you can dunk your head in.
Currently there are almost 1,400 Krispy Kremes throughout the planet, in addition to their robust presence at several grocers, but the bigwigs at the company expect this upcoming location "to serve more guests annually than any other Krispy Kreme location around the world." That makes perfect sense if you've been to Times Square.
Thus far Dunkin' Donuts has been the go-to eatery for New Yorkers who favor the pastries, but we shall see if that's still true about a year from now.
