Could two fast food giants soon team up in Iowa?
If there are two fast food restaurants that are universally adored (or loathed by health freaks) and regularly visited by American and global audiences, these two would be Krispy Kreme and McDonald’s.
Although Krispy Kreme only has four locations in the state of Iowa (including three in the greater Des Moines area and one in Council Bluffs), and I haven’t really tasted the crunchy, sweet goodness until until I go to university. , I understand the obsession.
However, when my parents were trying to raise a ridiculously picky young Eliot, McDonald’s was one of the few options that would make everyone happy when driving home from a shopping spree or a visit to grandma and grandpa.
For the rest of you who grew up in small town Iowa and were also picky eaters, I guess your childhood and eating habits were similar to mine.
Fans of donuts and microwave burgers, you may have the opportunity to taste them both… at the same time and in the same place.
According CNN, starting October 26, specific Mickey D locations will begin selling Krispy Kreme donuts. I think I just felt my blood stop moving after reading just that sentence.
The initial launch will take place at nine separate McDonald’s locations in Louisville, Ky. to test things out. According to a statement the two companies shared, the small start will help them “inform future menu decisions.”
CNN went on to explain how the partnership will work, “Krispy Kreme will deliver the donuts daily to participating restaurants and customers will be able to purchase them individually or in six-packs. Available options include Glazed, Glazed Chocolate with Sprinkles, and Filled Raspberry. “
McDonald’s added this in its own statement: “McDonald’s is always looking for ways to give our fans more of what they crave, and we often run tests to inform future menu decisions. This small-scale test will help us understand how offering new baked goods like Krispy Kreme could impact operations in our restaurants.
Who knows? Maybe the matchmaking is booming for both companies and it’s becoming a universal thing. Would you get your Krispy Kreme at a McDonald’s if the move took place in Iowa?
