Doughnut lovers rejoice.

Krispy Kreme announced today that it will open 20 more shops across Southern California over the next seven years.

“We are thrilled to be growing our business in Southern California,” according to Roger Glickman, CEO of franchise owner Great Circle Family Foods, which already operates 11 Krispy Kreme shops in Southern California.

Long Beach is home to one Krispy Kreme, according to its website. The other two closest are Orange and Gardena.

“This commitment for an additional 20 stores is a reflection of our success with the Krispy Kreme brand, our outstanding system-leading same store sales growth and our confidence in the small factory shop model,” Glickman said.

The new shops will stick with the “small factory” design, and will feature drive-through windows.

Exact locations have not been revealed.

They used to have one @ Cerritos Mall. I don't know why they took that one out. Hopefully they can open one maybe @ Long Beach Towne Center.
