The famous “Hot Now” sign will be lighting up the corner of Ladson Road and Palmetto Commerce Parkway with the opening of a new Krispy Kreme location on Tuesday, February 25th. The highly-anticipated new shop will feature freshly made doughnuts, specialty coffee drinks, brewed coffee, and a drive-thru.
Local residents are eagerly awaiting the opening of the second Charleston-area location. A public Facebook group titled “Countdown to the Red Light (Krispy Kreme Ladson Updates)” includes hundreds of residents sharing information and construction updates on the progress of the shop. The popular Krispy Kreme location on Savannah Highway in West Ashley has been serving the Charleston area since 2001.
The Grand Opening celebration will feature Krispy Kreme's Golden Ticket giveaway. Visit the new Ladson location during their first week for a chance to be a winner. Over a hundred random customers will receive their Golden Ticket at checkout from Tuesday, February 25th until Tuesday, March 3rd, with winners receiving one free dozen Original Glazed doughnuts every month for a year.
The new location is currently hiring for all positions and all shifts. Applications are located at the Wingate Hotel at 9280 University Boulevard in North Charleston. Applicants can call (843) 871- 0401 with any questions.
