Krispy Kreme to launch first store in Myanmar

The doughnut chain becomes one of only a few Western brands in the country.

Krispy Kreme plans to open the doors of its first shop in Myanmar in September 2018. The brand partnered with a Myanmar franchisee to become one of only a small number of Western restaurant brands that have a presence in the country.

The brand plans approximately 10 more shops to launch in Myanmar in the coming years.

Krispy Kreme is a global retailer of premium-quality sweet treats, including its signature Original Glazed doughnut. Headquartered in Winston-Salem, N.C., the company has offered the highest-quality doughnuts and great-tasting coffee since it was founded in 1937.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts can be found in approximately 12,000 grocery, convenience and mass merchant stores in the U.S., operating nearly 1,400 retail shops in 32 countries across the globe.
