Not too long ago, Krispy Kreme announced that they would be opening up a flagship store in New York City that not only sold their fresh donuts, but would feature tons of other merchandise and donut-themed items for customers to buy as well.

Today we got a look inside the NYC store and, being the veritable Mike TV of this Willy Wonka Tour, wanted to see as much as possible behind the scenes.

Located in Times Square, the flagship store features many attractions that set it apart from a standard Krispy Kreme doughnut shop.

Upon walking in, guests can shop around and buy a plethora of Krispy Kreme merchandise, including mugs, tumblers, and New-York specific gifts.

Other highlights of the flagship store include stadium-style seating made to look like you’re inside a giant Krispy Kreme doughnut box, the World’s Largest Hot Light, and a 24-hour streetwise pickup window. There’s even an exclusive New York City “Big Apple” Doughnut that can only be found at the flagship store.

Krispy Kreme has stated that with the shop now open, they will be strictly adhering to COVID-19 safety regulations and guidelines for both guests and employees. This includes employee health screenings, wearing face masks, social distancing floor stickers, regular hand washing protocols, protective barriers at ordering points, and additional disinfecting throughout the shop.

Teens Attack 76-Year-Old Worker At McDonald’s Because He Asked Them To Be Quiet


Typically, being asked to quiet down in a restaurant is met with embarrassment or slight annoyance and a lowering of voices, but apparently that was not the case for two rowdy New York high school students.

Two 17-year-old girls reportedly assaulted a 76-year-old McDonald’s employee who asked them to quiet down.

DNAinfo reported that the elderly employee asked the pair to lower their voices. Instead they pushed the man and punched him in the left side of his face.

The assault left his face red and swollen, resulting in medical treatment at the fast food restaurant, which is located on Broadway near Times Square.

The teens attend Food and Finance High School, where students learn about the culinary arts and related finances, but apparently at least these two did not learn about respect for restaurant employees. The pair was arrested and received desk appearance tickets according to police.

This is far from the first time a McDonald’s employee has been assaulted. Just earlier this month three women and their children assaulted an Ohio McDonald’s worker for serving them too slowly. That trio seem to have no remorse and even are smiling in their booking photos.
