US-based doughnut brand Krispy Kreme has expanded worldwide through their partner franchisees that operate on a per country basis.
Krispy Kreme officials said that to be chosen as a master franchisee of the brand is no mean feat as the doughnut company implements a tedious selection process to ensure that the brand\\\'s interests are upheld.
On Monday, Krispy Kreme launched its new sub-brand, the Krispy Kreme Baked Creations, here in the Philippines, giving the country the honor of being the first to sample this latest product line. The Real American Doughnut Company, owned by the Fuentebella family of the famed Max\\\'s Restaurant, is the master franchisee of Krispy Kreme in the Philippines.
"The Philippine franchisee of Krispy Kreme is one of the better performers, which was verified when the group won the first franchise award handed out by the company in May this year," said Jim Rogers, Krispy Kreme vice president for global franchise and marketing.
