In the fight to end the COVID-19 pandemic and to encourage citizens to get vaccinated, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is offering free doughnuts to those who have received the vaccine.
Starting Monday, March 22, guests who show a valid COVID-19 vaccination card at any Krispy Kreme shop in the US can receive a free iconic Original Glazed doughnut, every day through the end of the year. The chain is also supporting healthcare workers and those helping to administer the vaccine by delivering free doughnuts to select vaccination centers throughout the country in the coming weeks.
Additionally, Krispy Kreme is encouraging and enabling the vaccination of its team members by offering up to four hours of paid time off to each of them to get the vaccine, furthering the safety of team members and guests.
“We all want to get COVID-19 behind us as fast as possible and we want to support everyone doing their part to make the country safe by getting vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available to them,” says Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme chief marketing officer.
Krispy Kreme is also launching “Be Sweet Weekends,” offering guests who purchase any dozen an additional “Be Sweet Dozen” to safely share with a friend or neighbor for just $1. The Original Glazed dozen with a special smiley-face doughnut will be available for nine consecutive Saturday‑Sundays, March 27 through May 23.
Finally, Krispy Kreme will help Americans get their week off to a good start in these tough times with one free medium coffee and a free Original Glazed doughnut, no purchase necessary, every Monday, March 29 through May 24.
