Hope for Krispy Kreme’s Grand Opening in Tamarac

I’ve had enough of this.

For over eight months, this “opening soon” sign for Krispy Kreme has been teasing me.   I see it each time I drive home after shopping at the nearby Publix.  The building is almost laughing at me saying, “No donuts for you today, fatty!”

A few months ago, there was hope that it would finally open.  There was construction on the roof and a dumpster out front.   I knew it wouldn’t be much longer until I had one of those warm, glazed, delicious doughnuts.

Maybe two or three.

However, once more I was disappointed when the construction stopped and the building seemed abandoned.

I had to get to the bottom of this on behalf of fellow donut lovers and the citizens of Tamarac so I contacted Krispy Kreme South Florida headquarters and yelled  inquired as to why it was taking so long.   I promptly heard back from James Cosentino, Owner of Krispy Kreme South Florida.

Dear Ms Baron,

Thank you for inquiring about our new store location on Commercial Blvd and the Turnpike in Tamarac.  We are excited to share with you that we should receive our building permit from the City of Tamarac to start construction within 2 weeks.   We hope to open this store by the beginning of October 2012, if everything goes as planned.

We look forward to seeing you at our Grand Opening!!  Thanks again.

Unfortunately, I will have to wait three to four more months for the grand opening.  If you’re there, be sure to look for me.

I’ll be at the front of the line.

    “We are excited to share with you that we should receive our building permit from the City of Tamarac to start construction within 2 weeks.”

    So, how did they do all the previous work without a permit?

    I was wondering myself if we were getting a Krispy Creme Shop or a Bagel store.
    I love Krispy Cremes Donuts, but I don’t like what it does to my waistline.
    I am also afraid Krispy will attract alot of people making the parking lot very full.

  • I’m surprised one is opening so close to the Commercial & Nob Hill location.
