A Krispy Kreme will sweeten up Statesboro in the next few months with its new location next to Taco Bell.

Although an official opening date has not been set, the new 190 Northside Dr. location has opened up several jobs, for which job seekers may apply online.

According to Krispy Kreme’s website, the first 100 registered customers will receive a punch card for a dozen free glazed doughnuts every month for a year, provided they follow the grand opening rules.

Many Georgia Southern University students are looking forward to the new doughnut shop’s arrival.

“I’m excited about it. Doughnuts are my go-to. I feel like Statesboro is really growing,” Arianna Archer, senior public health major, said.

Sierra Butler, junior logistics major, plans to be among the first 100 customers at the Statesboro Krispy Kreme.

“I guess I have to stay overnight, because it’s going to be a bunch of people,” Butler said. “I might as well grab a chair and camp out.”
