As part of our mission to bring #JoyInABox to the 7,100 islands, we’re opening our 59th store in the Philippines at SM City Iloilo this November 30. It will be the 4th store in the Visayas and is a "Hotlight Store" which means that once you see the hotlight sign come on, you’re sure that you will get that melt in your mouth doughnut freshness that Krispy Kreme is known for!
