Local McDonald’s restaurants will be among the first to serve fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts

PITTSBURGH (March 27, 2024)…Nothing hits the spot quite like a fresh, melt-in-your-mouth doughnut paired with a McCafé coffee…and now, McDonald’s and Krispy Kreme have a sweet update for doughnut fans across the Tri-State area and around the country. 

The Golden Arches and Krispy Kreme are teaming up for a national expansion. Fans will soon begin spotting Krispy Kreme doughnuts in local McDonald’s restaurants because this region is first among the phased market rollout across the country. Nationwide availability at participating restaurants is expected by the end of 2026.


Three of Krispy Kreme’s most popular doughnuts will be delivered fresh to McDonald’s restaurants every day. They’ll be available individually, or in boxes of six, starting at breakfast and lasting throughout the day – while supplies last:

-The iconic Original Glazed Doughnut: A melt-in-your-mouth doughnut covered in Krispy Kreme’s signature glaze. The doughnut that started it all.

-The Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles Doughnut: A chocolatey twist on the original, dipped in chocolate icing and covered in rainbow sprinkles.

-The Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled Doughnut: Made with a light, fluffy dough and filled with a smooth Kreme™ filling then dipped in chocolate icing.

This follows a successful test at 160 McDonald’s restaurants in the Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky areas where consumer excitement and demand exceeded expectations. These pilot restaurants will continue to serve Krispy Kreme doughnuts during the nationwide rollout.    

“Since the launch of breakfast nearly 50 years ago, we’ve continued to offer new menu items, flavors and experiences that have made McDonald’s an irreplaceable part of fans’ morning routines,” said Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s USA’s Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer. “This partnership is an exciting next step in that journey and a chance to unlock new business opportunities in the breakfast category and throughout the day. Our fans’ love for Krispy Kreme runs deep, and we can’t wait to make it even easier for them to satisfy their sweet tooth at McDonald’s restaurants across the country.”

Krispy Kreme President and CEO Josh Charlesworth said “The top request we receive from consumers every day is ‘Please bring Krispy Kreme to my town.’ Partnering with McDonald’s on a national scale will provide our fans and doughnut lovers unprecedented daily access to fresh doughnuts and the joy that is Krispy Kreme.”

McDonald’s serves a variety of menu options made with quality ingredients to millions of customers every day. Every McDonald’s restaurant across the Three Rivers region is owned and operated by an independent local family that lives in the community.  For more information, follow on Facebook or Instagram @McDonaldsOfThreeRivers.
