Rolling in the Dough

Record #:
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts moved to Winston-Salem in 1937 because the founders, who arrived in town with a combined $25 in their pockets, felt their fledging business should be in a town with a nationally advertised product. From this humble beginning the popular doughnuts, once the state's best kept secret, have expanded across the Southeast and beyond. The company employs around 2,000, including 200 at the Winston-Salem home base. The company is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in 1987.
