For Krispy Kreme’s 83rd birthday this week, it’s the fans that get the gifts.

To celebrate 83 years of finger-licking deliciousness, on Friday, July 17, participating Krispy Kreme shops across the U.S. will provide one free Original Glazed dozen with the purchase of any dozen. Stores will also be lighting the iconic Hot Light earlier and keeping it on later.

“After 83 years, we’re still hot … and fresh … and delicious,” Chief Marketing Officer Dave Skena said in a news release. “On our birthday, Krispy Kreme fans get the gifts. This year we’re giving away a free Original Glazed dozen with purchase of any dozen and running the Hot Light day and night because we sure need something sweet to happen in 2020.”

To keep everyone as safe as possible, Krispy Kreme is asking fans to visit drive-thrus or order online through the Krispy Kreme website or app for pickup. Delivery is also available within 10 miles of a shop.

Krispy Kreme shops lobbies will be open for pickup of online orders only; all lobbies will be closed Friday for both in-shop ordering and dine-in.

Happy birthday, Krispy Kreme!
