Business Summary


Krispy Kreme was founded by Vernon Rudolph. Today, James Morgan is the Chairman and CEO.


In 2011, Krispy Kreme reported $362 million in revenue, with a net income of $7.6 million.


Krispy Kreme got its start when founder Vernon Rudolph purchased a donut shop in Paducah, Kentucky. Initially, the business operated under a delivery model, and Rudolph would deliver his donuts on his bicycle. The Kentucky location was eventually closed, and Rudolph moved the operation to Winston-Salem, North Carolina (where it’s currently headquartered). There, he found that there was a market for selling donuts to grocery stores, who would then resell them to their customers. Eventually, he started selling directly to individuals as well.

The company went public in 2000 (their ticker symbol is KKD). Their all-time high price was $50 per share in 2003, which was more than 200% of its original IPO price.
