    It marks the brand’s first comprehensive store redesign in more than a decade, according to a news release. And it’s one of 45 stores Krispy Kreme plans to open across the country through 2020.

    The design boasts digital and interactive features and “a ‘stylistic wink’ to Krispy Kreme’s heritage, while capturing the brand’s fun, warm and authentic personality.” It will offer an expanded menu, with doughnut-infused ice cream in both milkshakes and scoop sandwiches as well as customizable doughnut options where customers can choose from different glazes, toppings and drizzles.
