Ground broken for Krispy Kreme in Stockbridge


By Monroe Roark
Times Correspondent 

  Henry County residents have been wondering for a few months when the Krispy Kreme in Stockbridge will be open.

  That day is getting closer, as representatives of the doughnut maker met with city officials Tuesday for an official groundbreaking at the new location, 120 Hwy. 138 at the corner of Daniel Drive.

  The store is expected to open in January, with nearly 70 full-time and part-time jobs, according to a statement from the city. The existing building on the site, which was a Shoney’s restaurant in the 1980s and more recently a Hong Kong King Buffet, will be torn down to make way for the new facility.

  Krispy Kreme will be incorporating its new prototype interior and exterior design for the store, which will be approximately 2,300 square feet and include a 24-hour drive-thru window and the famous “HOT” light.

  In celebration of the grand opening, Krispy Kreme will provide the first 100 customers with free doughnuts for a year and first 150 will receive a commemorative t-shirt on opening day.

  As with other locations, Krispy Kreme’s fundraising program will offer local schools, churches and sports leagues, community and civic groups the opportunity to raise funds for their organizations.

  The store is currently hiring through the company’s web site,
