Krispy Kreme is rolling out its doughnuts to the Windy City with the opening of its first Downtown Chicago location in the Loop at Block 37 on October 22. The Chicago Fresh Shop – owned and operated by Chicagoland Restaurants LLC, franchisee of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts – marks the fourth of eight planned Krispy Kreme shops in the Chicagoland area.
Construction on the Fresh Shop began in August. The shop is located on the Pedway level of Block 37, a central shopping, dining and entertainment destination, and is accessible by both the CTA Red and Blue Lines.
The shop will offer Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed doughnuts, assorted doughnut varieties and frozen beverages, along with store-wide limited time offerings. To celebrate the shop’s opening, all brewed coffee will be offered at $0.90 through the end of 2019.
To keep the celebrations going, ten dozen (120) “Golden Tickets” will be distributed at random to customers at checkout throughout opening week from Tuesday, October 22 until Sunday, October 27, with winners receiving one free dozen Original Glazed doughnuts every month for a year.
“We are excited to expand Krispy Kreme Chicagoland into the heart of the city, and there is no better location for our first Chicago Fresh Shop than Block 37,” said Carlos Larcada, President of Chicagoland Restaurants, LLC. “We’re ready to satisfy Krispy Kreme cravings for commuters, visitors and Chicagoans inside our new downtown location.”
The Block 37 Krispy Kreme will be open Monday through Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Sunday from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
