Krispy Kreme Phils.' 24th Branch and the 1st outside Luzon was unveiled yesterday morning.
"We're pleased and proud to unveil the very first Krispy Kreme branch in Cebu", begins Mark Gamboa, Marketing Manager for Krispy Kreme Philippines. "More importantly, Krispy Kreme's very excited for having the opportunity to finally respond to the growing clamor for the brand in Cebu."
"The Cebu opening marks several milestones for the brand," shares Gamboa. "Aside from it being the brand's pioneer nationwide footprint and its store outside Luzon, it's also our first store in Cebu, and our 25th store in the Country--all in time to celebrate half a decade of being in the country."
On Saturday morning, a bunch of Kispy Kreme fanatics converged to witness as the Krispy Kreme Top Management uncovered their new store. The Krispy Kreme tradition continues as the 1st 100 customers lined up in front of the store, some was already there since Friday afternoon as early as 5:00pm camping at the Ayala terraces while waiting for the store opening at 10:00am Saturday. Originally, a young boy had the 1st spot followed by an old lady. However, the lady got the 1st spot since the young boy was later disqualified when it was discovered that the he was just a proxy of his Filipino-Chinese Boss. That old lady from Ormoc City, Anna Liza Caeng, will receive a one year supply of Original Glazed doughnut and KK Signature Coffee.
As soon as the green ribbon was cut, the 100 customers in line had the 1st purchase of Krispy Kreme doughnuts not in High Street nor SM Mall of Asia but finally in Cebu. The 150sq.m Krispy Kreme Ayala Center branch wasn't enough to cater hundreds of Cebuanos patiently waiting outside the store to taste what they've long been waited for.
The 2nd Krispy Kreme Cebu branch followed its opening at 5:00pm that day. This is exactly located at GF Asia Premiere Residences, IT Park. Krispy Kreme IT Park is said to be their Cebu's Factory Store that has an area of 250sq.m. We will also be expecting to have their 3rd branch in Cebu after 3 months.
