The shop, located at Blanchardstown Centre in Dublin, officially opened at 7am this morning.
Doughnut fans traveled from Ongar to Oldcastle to be the first ones to visit the doughnut retailer, with the first 100 in the store getting a complimentary Hot Original Glazed doughnut straight off the line.

The Blanchardstown shop is one of the doughnut company's biggest outlets in Europe - and has 16 different kinds of treats available to try, from Reeses to Strawberry glazed; Nutella to the OG.
Kreme Shakes, tea, coffee and other refreshments will also be available in-store and to take away - and available 24/7, thanks to the shop's drive-through.
Commenting on the store opening, Alex Drysdale, Ireland Country Director, Krispy Kreme, said:

"We would really like to thank all those who joined us today and sent in their good luck wishes.
"We must also extend our gratitude to the local authority, our Blanchardstown neighbours and our incredibly hard-working Krispy Kreme colleagues who helped to make opening day a roaring success.
