Krispy Kreme to Open Seven Locations in New England

Still none in Boston.

Krispy Kreme is preparing to make some serious in-roads in Dunkin’ country.

The beloved North Carolina-based doughnut chain has announced it would expand into New England “over the next several years,” with four locations planned for New Hampshire and three for Maine. Krispy Kreme has close to 300 locations across 41 states.

“The demand for Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee continues to grow throughout New England, so we are very happy to bring this iconic brand to New Hampshire and Maine,” vice president Patricia Perry said in a release.

Sadly, Krispy Kreme’s announcement made no mention of plans for Massachusetts. Perhaps Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Gov. Charlie Baker can gin up some tax incentives and bring one to Boston. While it’s unlikely it’ll need a helipad, airborne doughnut delivery is an endeavor more than worthy of pursuing.

Krispy Kreme closed seven of its 16 planned New England locations in the early 2000s, with just the one located inside the Mohegan Sun resort in Uncasville, Connecticut remaining.
