DENVER-Denver-based Glazed Investments LLC has broken ground on Colorado’s first Krispy Kreme doughnut shop, a 4,200-sf store that will open in late 2000 or early 2001.

The store is being constructed at 7541 E. Parkway Drive in Lone Tree near Park Meadows regional mall. It’s the first of eight shops that Glazed Investments – one of five franchise groups licensed to open Krispy Kreme’s across the country – plans to open in Colorado. Glazed also is the franchiser for Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Krispy Kreme, founded in 1937 in Winston-Salem, NC, operates more than 155 stores that make 3.5 million doughnuts daily in 27 states. Sixty percent of the company’s sales come from the Original Hot Glazed, a doughnut has caused grand opening traffic jams as customer wait hours in long lines that oftentimes practically circle the free-standing shops.

LaMar’s Donuts of Lincoln, NE, also plans to build a doughnut shop near Park Meadows. Its plans for the metro area call for opening 30 to 35 locations over the course of four to six years.
