Get a year's worth of doughnuts at Krispy Kreme opening

By Janelle Bitker

Krispy Kreme devotees, start gathering your camping gear.

A new Krispy Kreme shop in West Sacramento is opening at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9, and the first person in line gets one dozen free glazed doughnuts every week for a full year.

Being No. 1 may seem daunting, but the next 99 customers still receive a dozen free doughnuts every month for a year. That's a whole lot of popularity around the office.

But wait. There's more.

The first customer in the drive-through line - no tent needed - also gets a dozen free doughnuts every week for a year, and the following 11 drive-through customers get the monthly treatment. There are also t-shirts at stake for all 112 Krispy Kreme-winners.

For context: A recent opening in Mesa, Arizona drew 100 people before 11 p.m. the night before, and Charlene Lopez of the WKS Restaurant Group said the earliest she's seen a camper was 8 a.m. a full day before opening.

Krispy Kreme West Sacramento: 768 Ikea Court, Suite 110, West Sacramento. Expected hours are 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
