"We all need a little joy right now and with that we welcome the Krispy Kreme flagship location to the heart of this great city. We're thrilled for New Yorkers and visitors to enjoy the one-of-a-kind treats and the famous Hot Light experience. This iconic brand will make Times Square sweeter and we can't wait to take a bite," said Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance.
How Krispy Kreme is Keeping Visitors Safe
Originally scheduled to open in May, illuminating the Hot Light was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. And Krispy Kreme quickly adapted its opening plans to ensure guests and employees alike are safe in the store.
Capacity in the store is limited, and you can even reserve time slots online to visit the store and remote queueing. The store is also adhering to all NYC and CDC COVID-19 safety guidelines, including face masks required for anyone in the store, protective barriers between guests and employees, social distancing markers, regular cleaning and sanitizing, and temperature checks of employees before their shift. What’s more? You can place an order online or via the Krispy Kreme app and pick up your doughnuts from the 24-hour curbside pick-up window.
Want to visit the Times Square Krispy Kreme flagship?
The world’s tallest Hot Light, standing at 15 feet tall, will always be on. That’s right, that means you can enjoy a hot, fresh Original Glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut whenever the craving strikes!
Krispy Kreme Times Square is located at 1601 Broadway, at West 48th Street, in Times Square. It’s set to open Sept. 15, and it will be open 24/7.
