Ireland loudly loves its first Krispy Kreme: report
Krispy Kreme opened a donut shop in Dublin last week -- the company's first in Ireland -- and response was, well, overwhelming, CNN reports.
The store attracted very large and enthusiastic crowds. But they were also noisy and clogged nearby streets. Traffic got so bad and tings got so loud the store finally had to discontinue its 24-hour drive thru, the story said.
"The reaction to our first store opening has been overwhelming with lots of people enjoying our doughnuts in Ireland for the first time," Krispy Kreme tweeted. "But we know too that some of the enthusiasm from some drive thru customers has resulted in sleepless nights for our neighbours. We do apologise for this and we are doing all we can to minimize the noise (especially at night)."
The company hoped a traffic plan and new signage would calm the drive-thru chaos, but it was not to be. The company later pulled the plug on the all-night drive-thru, which now closes at 11:30 p.m.
