Krispy Kreme has opened its newest location at 2563 Broadway, between 96th and 97th Streets. They first announced they’d be opening at this location at the beginning of the year, and UWS donut fans have been chomping at the bit ever since. Signs of progress came with lots of excitability and anticipation.

The shop will feature a full doughnut menu, hot and cold beverages, dozens of its iconic Original Glazed® Doughnuts and plenty of other delicious options that will satisfy any sweet tooth.
Until November 22nd, the new Upper West Side Krispy Kreme will also offer the seasonal Caramel Glazed and Double Salted Caramel Crunch doughnuts.
“Krispy Kreme doughnuts really have a way of delighting and we’re passionate about bringing that energy to our customers, especially in a city that’s seen so much in the last several months,” said Christine Kobrynich, Director of Operations, New York. “We’re excited to ramp up the sweetness in the Upper West Side and continue backing the resurgence of New York City. I have enjoyed meeting some of our neighbors and look forward to making a positive impact in the community.”
As a part of welcoming guests into the new shop on the Upper West Side, Krispy Kreme will award ten dozen lucky individuals a “celebration ticket” within the first week of opening. Winners will be selected at random and receive a ticket worth a dozen free Original Glazed® doughnuts to use throughout the year.
The new Krispy Kreme Upper West Side is employing 24 newly hired team members and managers.
Store hours are Sunday – Thursday, 7am-10pm and Friday – Saturday, 7am – 11pm. Social distancing and advanced safety measures will be enforced at all times in the shop, and delivery is available as well. For delivery, mobile, and online orders, Krispy Kreme doughnuts will be securely sealed and bagged individually, along with instructions for contactless drop-off, including social distancing and safety guidelines. If picking up from the shop, they will be pre-bagged at the mobile order area at the front of the shop.
