On this day in history, July 13, 1937, Krispy Kreme is founded: 'Delicious scents of doughnuts'

Well-known doughnut chain Krispy Kreme was founded in North Carolina on this day in history, July 13, 1937.

Company founder Vernon Rudolph “bought a secret yeast-raised doughnut recipe from a New Orleans French chef,” said the website for Krispy Kreme.

Rudolph set up a doughnut factory in present-day Old Salem in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and began to sell doughnuts to area grocery stores, says the chain’s website.

“Our iconic Original Glazed® doughnut is universally recognized for its hot-off-the-line, melt-in-your-mouth experience,” they said.

Far removed from its beginnings as a literal hole in the wall in North Carolina, the company now has operations in more than 30 countries, said its website. 

“Krispy Kreme built a mix plant and developed a distribution system that delivered the perfect dry doughnuts mix to each Krispy Kreme store,” said the company’s website. 

“Then Rudolph and his equipment engineers invented and built Krispy Kreme’s own doughnut making equipment. From the 1950s on, they focused on improving and automating the doughnut making process.”

“A renewed focus on the hot doughnut experience became a priority for the company,” it also said, along with expansion outside its roots in the southeastern United States.

Krispy Kreme opened its first store in New York City in 1996. 

The city is now home to the Krispy Kreme Flagship store, which sells an exclusive “Big Apple Doughnut” with an apple cream filling. 

Krispy Kreme’s first international store opened in December 2001 in Ontario, Canada, its website also noted. 

In 2003, Krispy Kreme opened locations in Sydney, Australia, and London, England, its first locations outside of North America.
