Baton Rouge Krispy Kreme announces opening date

Krispy Kreme on Plank Road to reopen May 26, 2020

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - After months of anticipation, the Krispy Kreme location on Plank Road in Baton Rouge will return.

A sign on the front door of the business says the store will reopen Tuesday, May 26, 2020. The doughnut shop had been closed since June of 2019 when the corporate office announced the location would be renovated and would reopen in winter of 2019.

Earlier in 2020, a representative with the business told WAFB the location was projected to reopen sometime in March. The business did not open within that time frame, however. It’s unclear if the coronavirus pandemic led to the delay, but eager fans who have been emailing WAFB regularly inquiring about the store will likely be excited to see an official reopening date.

WAFB reached out to the corporate office for Krispy Kreme to request more information about the reopening, but so far, the company has not responded.
