Doughnut lovers rejoice.

Krispy Kreme announced today that it will open 20 more shops across Southern California over the next seven years.

“We are thrilled to be growing our business in Southern California,” according to Roger Glickman, CEO of franchise owner Great Circle Family Foods, which already operates 11 Krispy Kreme shops in Southern California.

Only two of those are in Orange County, Mission Viejo and Orange.

“This commitment for an additional 20 stores is a reflection of our success with the Krispy Kreme brand, our outstanding system-leading same store sales growth and our confidence in the small factory shop model,” Glickman said.

The new shops will stick with the “small factory” design, and will feature drive-through windows.

Exact locations have not been revealed.

No! Aliso Viejo doesn't need a Krispy Kreme - We have two donut shops already. What we need is a farmer's market and promote healthier lifestyles and eating. We have enough places for the quick junk. There is a location close by - no need for another.
