Don’t look now, but a trip to New York City’s Times Square just got a lot sweeter.

Krispy Kreme, the doughnut store extraordinaire, announced it is opening the first-of-its-kind flagship store in Times Square in early 2020.

With its 4,500 square feet of retail space, the shop “will serve more guests annually than any other Krispy Kreme location in the world,” the company said Tuesday in a news release.

As with its other locations, the site will allow guests to see the doughnuts being made from beginning to end. But unlike other sites, guests will then be able to eat their doughnuts in the “world’s largest Krispy Kreme doughnut box with stadium-style seating.”

“Our direction is to be the most loved sweet treat brand in the world,” said Michael Tattersfield, CEO and President of Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corp. “In the most iconic city in the world, the Krispy Kreme Times Square Flagship will showcase our brand on the global stage and inspire customer wonder. We love making awesome doughnuts — and New Yorkers deserve hot and fresh doughnuts!”

Another feature of the store will be the chain’s largest Hot Light — the company’s symbol that doughnuts are currently being made.

The store will sell exclusive merchandise that “celebrates both New York City and Krispy Kreme in a fresh and fun way.”

For those on the go, the Krispy Kreme Times Square Flagship will feature an exterior walk-up window and indoor “grab-and-go” counter.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
