On National First Responders Day last month, Krispy Kreme offered first responders a treat: free doughnuts and coffee! Any law enforcement officer, firefighter, paramedic/EMT, emergency operator dispatcher or search and rescue worker was eligible if they presented themselves at one of its participating stores or drive-thrus with valid identification or badge.
Krispy Kreme has decided to go one step further: every Monday from May 6-12 (National Nurses Week), healthcare workers can come in and receive one dozen original glazed doughnuts free when showing their employee badge or ID at any local Krispy Kreme location. “Krispy Kreme wants to show our appreciation for all those working tirelessly against the coronavirus outbreak through this simple gesture of good will,” according to their statement.
Krispy Kreme was established in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in 1937 and has since brought joy and laughter to millions around the globe. Well known for its delicious doughnuts and coffee offerings, as well as special promotions aimed at graduating seniors or offering one for only the cost of one gallon of gas – Krispy Kreme never ceases finding ways to surprise and delight customers!
Krispy Kreme recently intensified its efforts to encourage people to get themselves vaccinated against COVID-19 by offering a weeklong deal in which those who got their shot would be rewarded with two free doughnuts – in addition to its existing offer that rewards those vaccinated every day of the year with free treats!
