Fans can anticipate finding Krispy Kreme doughnuts at their nearby McDonald’s establishments later this year, as announced by both companies on Tuesday (March 26).

Freshly delivered daily, three of Krispy Kreme’s beloved doughnuts – glazed, chocolate iced with sprinkles, and crème filled – will grace McDonald’s menus. Subject to availability, these treats will be available for individual purchase or in packs of six throughout the day.

According to Krispy Kreme, here are the details on their iconic doughnuts:

The Original Glazed Doughnut: A delectable treat known for its melt-in-your-mouth texture, covered in Krispy Kreme’s signature glaze. It’s the doughnut that kicked off their legacy.

The Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles Doughnut: A delightful chocolatey variation of the original, dipped in luscious chocolate icing and adorned with colorful rainbow sprinkles.

The Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled Doughnut: Crafted with a light and fluffy dough, this indulgent delight is filled with a smooth Kreme filling and then dipped in rich chocolate icing.

“This partnership is an exciting next step in that journey and a chance to unlock new business opportunities in the breakfast category and throughout the day,” said Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s USA’s Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer.

The partnership kicked off after a trial run at 160 McDonald’s spots in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky. Customers showed immense excitement and demanded more.

“Our fans’ love for Krispy Kreme runs deep, and we can’t wait to make it even easier for them to satisfy their sweet tooth at McDonald’s restaurants across the country,” Hassan added.

Teaming up with McDonald’s presents a significant chance for Krispy Kreme to broaden its horizons.

Currently, it distributes its doughnuts to 6,800 third-party stores as of December 31st. Meanwhile, McDonald’s boasts around 13,500 restaurants across the U.S. and aims to add 900 new locations nationwide by 2027.

“The top request we receive from consumers, every day, is, ‘Please bring Krispy Kreme to my town.’ Partnering with McDonald’s on a national scale will provide our fans and doughnut lovers unprecedented daily access to fresh doughnuts and the joy that is Krispy Kreme,” said Krispy Kreme President and CEO Josh Charlesworth.

Neither company specified a date for the doughnuts’ arrival on McDonald’s menus, but both Krispy Kreme and McDonald’s promised more details about the nationwide launch in the coming months.

While the partnership might not be ready to roll out by this summer (National Donut Day is on June 7, 2024), expect Krispy Kreme to still cook up some fantastic concepts and discounts, just like they did last year.
