The new store with glass frontage will give customers the chance to witness the production of fresh donuts.
The Dame Street store follows the successful openings of Krispy Kreme Blanchardstown four years ago, when large crowds gathered on opening day.
In 2019, the company’s Blanchardstown store was revealed as its best performing worldwide.
The Irish Times reported that the store earned average weekly revenues of almost €300,000 from the end of September to December in 2018.
A queue of 300 people was outside on its first day of operations when it opened its doors at 7am, and the shop was forced to suspend its 27/4 drive-through operation soon afterwards as local residents complained of queues.
A spokesman for Krispy Kreme Ireland in 2019 said the Blanchardstown store was “the best-performing” Krispy Kreme outlet across its 1,300 strong network in 31 countries.
In 2020, the Blanchardstown outlet recorded average weekly revenues of almost €87,000, despite the store being temporarily shut down by the Covid-19 pandemic.
