The famous “Hot Now” sign will be lighting up at another Lowcountry location! Krispy Kreme is bringing their Original Glazed® doughnuts to Ladson. Opening on Tuesday, February 25, the highly anticipated new shop will feature freshly-made doughnuts, iconic doughnut theatre, specialty coffee drinks, brewed coffee and a drive-thru.

The Grand Opening celebration will be made a little bit sweeter with the chance at winning Krispy Kreme’s Golden Ticket giveaway. Over a hundred random customers will receive a Golden Ticket at checkout, which entitles winners to one free dozen Original Glazed® doughnuts every month for a year. Visit the new location any time during their first week for a chance to enter.

Locals have eagerly been awaiting the opening and have even created a  “Countdown to the Red Light” Facebook group to share updates on construction. The new location at the corner of Ladson Road and Palmetto Commerce Parkway will be the second Charleston-area shop for the beloved chain. The Krispy Kreme on Savannah Highway in West Ashley has been serving the Charleston area since 2001.

The new Krispy Kreme Ladson is also looking to turn dreamers in Krispy Kremers. They are currently hiring for all positions and shifts. Applications can be picked up at Wingate Hotel, located at 9280 University Boulevard in North Charleston. Applicants can call 843-871-0401 with any questions.

Krispy Kreme will feature specials and giveaways throughout the grand opening time period. Fans can follow the Krispy Kreme Ladson Facebook page for updates, contests, giveaways and a countdown to the big day!
