I hope you are keeping safe and well.
I wanted to update you on changes to the way Krispy Kreme will be safely serving you throughout the national lockdown across the UK.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers is our number one priority, at all times. Our stores and manufacturing sites are COVID-secure, and every member of staff has been fully trained on all health, safety and social distancing measures. You can find out more about the measures we have in place here.
Showing thanks and bringing joy the best way we know how
During this challenging time, we will be focused on our mission of bringing joy, and we want to especially thank our Blue Light Heroes and Food heroes. We know smiles have never been more important right now, so it is our mission in 2021 to create 70 million smiles. We are starting the year by recognising and supporting the amazing work of our Blue Light Heroes - the NHS, social workers, military, and emergency service workers, who are once again facing down the virus with unwavering commitment and dedication and our Food Heroes - those that have worked tirelessly to keep the nation fed. Throughout the lockdown we will say a big doughnutty thank you to them by offering 50% off our Dozens every Wednesday, from 13th January to 17th February 2021, in our stores.*
In 2020, I am proud to say we safely served over one million complimentary Original Glazed doughnuts, bringing a little lift in the day to those that needed it most - hospitals, food banks and care home workers. I am delighted to say we will continue to run contactless doughnut drops in local communities close to our manufacturing sites, every week throughout 2021.
Safely serving smiles in the only way we know how
To our customers, we know it is challenging for every one of us to enter into another lockdown and not be able to see and hug those we care about, so we at Krispy Kreme are here to safely create and serve smiles in the only way we know how. With 6 in 10 of you feeling strongly that it is important to treat family and friends during this period, we hope to create some smiles of the doughnutty kind.
Our activities in January and February are really focused on doing just that. Helping to bring you, and those that need it most, more smiles. Every Saturday from 9th January to 20th February we are running a buy one gift one initiative that enables you to buy a dozen from any of our Krispy Kreme retail stores via Click and Serve, walk-in or drive thru and gift one. For just £1 for an Original Glazed dozen, you can help lift the spirits of someone who needs just a little smile in their day.*
For our loyal fans, our Krispy Kreme Rewards members, we thank you for your continued loyalty and support. On Blue Monday 18th January, we will be gifting you double Smiles on all purchases to brighten up a miserable day and make you smile.
