Krispy Freme was founded in 1937 by a man named Vernon Rudolph. Rudolph brought a secret yeast-raised doughnut recipe from a French chef from New Orleans. With this recipe he started making doughnuts and selling them to local grocery stores. His doughnuts became so popular that he started selling them fresh, even cutting a whole in the wall to sell them from.
Over the years Krispy Kreme spread throughout the United States and is now a successful international franchise whose name is synonymous with delicious unique doughnuts and excellent coffee.
