Krispy Kreme issued this statement to WBTV News:
“Our fresh daily doughnut business is strong, profitable, and growing quickly. This is the area where we are focusing our investments and resources.”
“Because of this, we chose to exit our underperforming, extended shelf-life snack aisle business and cease production at our manufacturing facility in Concord, N.C., where these snack aisle products were made. We are supporting our affected employees, all of whom are eligible to apply for any open position or for severance and outplacement services. We are grateful to all of them.”
