Krispy Kreme Makes a Komeback

Krispy Kreme doughnuts are on their way back to Southern Arizona.

Now I know a lot of you are still a little pissed off about the untimely bankruptcy filing that closed both of our Krispy Kreme locations back in 2006, but this time, Doughnut Dan is at the helm, and he's apparently one well-rounded doughnut dude.

Dan Brinton says he'll open the doors to his new Krispy Kreme location in Marana at 8260 N. Cortaro Road, Suite 112, on the morning of Tuesday, June 23. It should go flawlessly, considering that all Brinton's done over the past year has seemingly involved opening Krispy Kreme locations.

Brinton has been up to his elbows in glaze and sprinkles, opening seven stores in Arizona in 13 months. Opening any business takes dedication—and opening seven stores during a recession, well that's just plain, ahem, dough-nuts.

As for that grand opening: The first 100 lobby customers who have added Doughnut Dan as a Facebook friend (bring a printout as proof) will get a free doughnut and 12-ounce coffee every day for a year. The first 24 people in line will also get a chance to dig through a heap of sprinkles in an attempt to win a year's supply of doughnuts.
