Krispy Kreme Opens First Location in Winnipeg

Krispy Kreme Canada is about to sweeten Winnipeg’s landscape with a new location, set to open in late spring 2024. They’ll be bringing their world-famous Original Glazed doughnut to the Prairies and marking an exciting milestone for the growth of Krispy Kreme Canada.

This location will be the first iteration of a new Canadian design that present and future Krispy Kreme Canada shops will adopt. The new 4,600 square foot Hot Light Theatre Shop, located at 465 Sterling Lyon Pkwy within the Tuxedo Park Shopping Centre, will offer the ultimate Krispy Kreme experience. Not only will guests be able to witness the journey of freshly made doughnuts from start to finish through the Doughnut Theatre, but they will also be able to enjoy their hot and fresh doughnuts right after they are made.

“We are thrilled to bring the magic of our fresh, hot, light and airy doughnuts to our friends in Winnipeg,” said Levi Hetrick, Chief Growth Officer at Krispy Kreme Canada. “The Hot Light Theatre Shop will certainly be a hit, giving a front-row seat to the most awesome doughnut experience imaginable.”

The grand opening event will feature prizes, games, and fun for all. Guests will have the chance to see the Hot Light turned on for the very first time, signaling that fresh doughnuts are being made and ready to be enjoyed! Throughout the grand opening week, Krispy Kreme will randomly award 12 lucky guests a Celebration Ticket worth a dozen free Original Glazed doughnuts every month for a year.

Krispy Kreme Canada will also bring its successful fundraising program to Winnipeg. Schools, sports teams and charitable organizations across Winnipeg will be able to raise some dough by purchasing Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnuts at a reduced price, then resell to achieve their fundraising goals.
