Krispy Kreme Launches 'National Doughnut Delivery' on Feb. 29


Doughnut worry, be happy.

Krispy Kreme is giving doughnut lovers a sweet leap-year treat.

Starting Feb. 29 (leap day!), fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts can be delivered to your door step, reported USA Today.

Ordering customers must be located near one of the chain's 350 locations in 42 states. For the delivery, you have to be 10 miles from your local Krispy Kreme.

Doordash will deliver the sweet treats by the dozen and boxed coffee. There will be a $4.99 delivery fee for most locations.

Customers can order through the Krispy Kreme app or website. Alternatively, doughnut fans can also pick up their orders at no extra charge.

Krispy Kreme has tested delivery since 2018 from some locations.

"We are adamant about our doughnuts being fresh, which is one of the reasons we haven't done this before we were sure we had a third-party partner that could help us ensure that every one of those doughnuts was delivered fresh and always fresh right from the store after it was made," Krispy Kreme Chief Marketing Officer Dave Skena said.

More people will soon be able to get doughnuts delivered as Krispy Kreme plans to add 450 new locations all across the world.

To mark the launch of the delivery, the chain will deliver free doughnuts to new parents, doctors, nurses and staff at hospitals within a 10-mile radius of Krispy Kreme.

To get the free doughnuts, you must tag @KrispyKreme and add the hashtag #KrispyKremeSpecialDelivery.
