Krispy Kreme Coming to EVER Square in 2024
As progress continues at EVER Square, EVER RED is excited to welcome Krispy Kreme to the development. Alongside multiple national and North American franchises, local wellness providers, and many health care specialists and office professionals, Krispy Kreme will be opening their flagship development in Alberta in 2024.
The global doughnut chain is expanding their reach into the Alberta market with a signature Hot Light Factory store, a location that will not only serve as a drive-thru and dine-in QSR but will also function as their production facility for future standalone locations in and around Edmonton.
“The addition of Krispy Kreme to not just our development, but to Edmonton and Alberta, brings additional excitement that will attract visitors from throughout the province.” Said Sam Narayan, Partner and President. “We are thrilled that they chose our site for their first and flagship Edmonton factory.”
For over 80 years, Krispy Kreme has been serving their world famous Original Glazed doughnut around the world. In 2001 that experience came to Canada with their first store opening in Mississauga, Ontario followed shortly thereafter by a location in Montreal, Quebec. Presently, they have 13 locations across the country with more underway.
“We are thrilled to bring the Krispy Kreme brand to Edmonton. We think the site at EVER Square is a fantastic entry point to the market. It will allow us to serve customers how they choose either via the drive-thru or by coming inside the Hot Light Theatre Shop to enjoy Original Glazed doughnuts right off the line.” Said Krispy Kreme Management.
At the Hot Light Factory store customers can enjoy the ultimate Krispy Kreme experience and see doughnuts being made in their unique Doughnut Theatre. Doughnuts are made fresh throughout the day for in-store customers and are supplied to surrounding Doughnut Cafés where applicable.
Colliers Edmonton’s Afsar Khurshed, Associate Vice President of Colliers Retail, played an instrumental role in securing this deal and fostering the relationship with Krispy Kreme.
“It was a pleasure to work with EVER RED to place Krispy Kreme in a destination worthy of development and further add to the resurgence of Calgary Trail + Gateway Blvd.” Says Afsar Khurshed, Associate Vice President of Colliers Retail.
We would also like to recognize Adel Hanafi, Vice President of Investment Sales and Leasing for RE/MAX Excellence Commercial Division, for his role in creating the relationship with Colliers and their client, Krispy Kreme.
