Krispy Kreme Opens its Third Davao Branch at SM Lanang Premier

Krispy Kreme continues to spoil Davaoenos’ sweet palate by opening its third Davao branch at the heart of SM Lanang Premier, one of Davao’s premier shopping destinations. The unveiling of the the brand’s third store in the region was celebrated with the chosen children from the local foundation, the Orphanage of St.Jerome. The kids were treated to a gift giving ceremony and a doughnut dipping session, where they experienced designing their own doughnuts.

“Krispy Kreme is a brand that’s all about the gift of sharing,” says Mark Gamboa, Marketing Director of Krispy Kreme Philippines. “And along with our expansion to satisfy the palates of more Filipinos, the opening of this new branch will bring with it our many efforts to continue the legacy of the brand’s ‘Share the Gift of Joy’ campaign in the country.”

 Calling everyone to work hand-in-hand towards change, Krispy Kreme sets aside P20 for every sale of the brand’s specially designed Tin Can for its partner charities—12 organizations that care for the environment: ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. – Bantay Kalikasan and Philippine Native Plants Conservation Society Inc.; for creativity: Cultural Center of the Philippines, Visual Arts and Museum Division; for lives: Caritas Manila Inc., Philippine Red Cross, and ICanServe Foundation Inc.; for our animal friends: Philippine Animal Welfare Society; and of course, for kids: Operation Smile Philippines, Kythe Inc., Development and Accessibility Fund for the Deaf Inc., Autism Society Philippines, and Friends of Hope Inc.

Davao City Says Hello to Krispy Kreme

Yesterday was an epic day to remember, as the world famous doughnuts and coffee brand, Krispy Kreme, finally opened its doors to selected media/bloggers and guests in two of their flagship branches in Mindanao – Abreeza Mall and SM Annex Davao.
 
 
When the hotlight is on, it means freshly baked doughnuts are served on the racks! Don’t miss it!
 
A media preview was held at their Abreeza Ayala mall branch where media guests were given the chance to taste their freshly baked doughnuts and kruffins. They also had a chance to design their own Krispy Kreme doughnuts to their own liking. This branch features the Baked Kitchen, where the brand’s baked creations are freshly rolled out everyday.
 
Come evening, cocktails were served at their SM Annex Branch where selected guests and members of the press witnessed the unveiling of a bigger and more spacious store. This outlet houses the Doughnut Factory, where thousands of Original Glazed Doughnuts are produced daily. They also feature the 4th drive thru store in the country. After the unveiling, unlimited Original Glazed Doughnuts and Signature Coffee where served, alongside with their other doughnuts creations and delicious chillers. I got to try their New York Cheesecake Doughnut and Caramel Latte Chiller, and got to take home a dozen of Original Glazed Doughnuts. It was a doughnut filled evening, Indeed!

Krispy Kreme is Coming to Town

Now, Davaoeños need not  to go to Manila or wait for their relatives/friends from Manila to bring home dozens of Krispy Kreme. No need to drool over pictures of delectable, sweet round doughnuts that we can only taste in our dreams. Finally, this U.S. Franchised doughnuts brand is all set to give Davaoeños not just one, but three branches. That’s right. Three! These will be at SM Annex, Abreeza Mall, and SM Lanang Premier (opening on November)
Krispy Kreme Davao Serving Soon
I attended their Pre-launch last night at Tiny Kitchen and was able to meet Mark and Steph, the marketing team of Krispy Kreme. They shared a whole lot of good news for us.

“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.”

Discussing the details for the opening.
Here’s something that I know for sure would shake you up. Krispy Kreme will open two branches on October 20, 2012; 9 am at SM Annex and 12nn at Abreeza Mall. Now, get this. Be the first one on the line and you’ll get a Free One (1) year supply of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Coffee. Imagine, that’s 52 dozens of doughnuts and 365 cups of coffee. The second on the line gets 6 months supply of coffee and doughnuts, third one gets 3 months supply, and finally, the 4th to 100th on the line gets 1 month supply!  Not only that, SM Annex will have a drive thru, so be the first one on your car to fall in line and you’ll get the same deal. There will be a lot of freebies, too. If that’s not awesome sauce, I don’t know what is.
