Krispy Kreme Myanmar will open its first store next month.
The US doughnut brand has appointed a local franchisee partner which it says has plans to open 10 stores “in the near future”.
Krispy Kreme Myanmar will be one of only a small number of early entrants into the country among global fast-food brands.
“With a growing economy and a population eager to welcome global brands, the time is right for Krispy Kreme to bring sweet treats to Myanmar,” a company spokesperson said in a statement issued from its North Carolina headquarters.
Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation was founded in 1937 and sells a range of doughnuts along with coffee through 12,000 supermarkets and convenience stores in the US and through 1400 of its own or franchised retail shops in 32 countries.
