As first revealed in YorkMix in July, Krispy Kreme is opening a doughnut shop on Coney Street.
A date has now been set for the opening, in the old Candy Hero shop – Wednesday, September 27.
Opening at 10am, the new outlet will offer 16 varieties of treats – from the classic Original Glazed to the more decadent Reese’s Peanut Butter.
Krispy Kreme is promising to dish out hundreds of free doughnuts at hotspots across the city during the lead-up to opening.
Operations director Neil Williamson said: “We’re really excited to be opening up a second store in York, following a brilliant opening in York Designer Outlet last October.
“As always, the reception from the people of Yorkshire has been fantastic…it’s going to be a good one.”
