New Krispy Kreme coming soon to Auburn

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - The "Hot Now" sign will soon light up at Auburn's sweetest new restaurant.

Workers are assembling chairs and moving furniture into the new Krispy Kreme outside the Auburn Mall.

The new restaurant will feature a drive-thru window and create about 50 new jobs for the area.

"I can't wait to see the hot sign, and I can drive up and get some," said Nashavia Johnson from Opelika. "It's just so good. I am so excited."

"Do some shopping at the mall, then go get a coffee and a doughnut," added Julie Debates. "It's a great addition to this area."

Construction is almost complete, and the store is slated to open May 10. A grand opening is also being planned for later this month.
