Chicago is about to get hot—or at least, its donut scene is. The beloved donut chain Krispy Kreme is making its way into the Windy City, finding a new home on South Halstead Street in the suburb of Homewood.
This brand-new Krispy Kreme storefront is set to open on January 10th, 2017 in a big way. To celebrate its grand-opening, the store will give the first 100 customers free donuts. The first dozen customers (not baker’s dozen, sadly) will receive a free dozen Original Glazed donuts every week for a year—talk about a sugar rush.
If you’re one of the customers that happen to be number 13-100, you won’t miss out on everything. While you might not get a dozen donuts every week, you will receive a fresh batch of a dozen Original Glazed donuts every month for a year.
For those interested in lining up for these hot and ready treats, you can begin doing so on January 9th. At this time, the store will set up a heated tent and provide you with a placement number. The doors will officially open at 6am on the 10th.
Along with delicious donuts, this Krispy Kreme will have a 24-hour drive-thru for your late-night cravings. This opening will also mark the premier of Krispy Kreme’s new premium coffee in the Midwest region.
Chicago is the perfect place for food! There’s no city in the country with more places to eat delicious dishes. Chicago and food are so inseparable that many meals that you can find there have become the city’s signature dishes. Whether is due to the styling or the taste, food in Chicago has developed a personality and life of its own. In order to introduce readers to the world of Chicago cuisine, we’re going to take an in-depth look into Chicago’s signature food!
- Chicago Deep Dish Pizza
You can keep your foldable pizza, New York! We’ll take deep dish any day. Chicago-style pizza is most often defined by a deep pan of dough filled with cheese and delicious ingredients. After that, a hearty helping of tomato sauce is applied on top. The result is a satisfying and filling meal.
- Chicago Hot Dogs
Nothing is better during a game at Wrigley Field and a walk about town that a Chicago-Style Hot Dog. So what separates these dogs from other wieners? An all-beef hot dog is housed between a steamed poppy seed bun. That delicious combo is topped with mustard, relish, tomato, onions, hot peppers, and celery salt. And the cherry on top is rather a pickle spear. That’s what makes this wiener a winner!
- Italian Beef
Other sandwiches can’t touch the customizability and taste of the Italian Beef sandwich. Thinly cut slices of roast beef are placed in a long Italian roll. Any way you want this sandwich, it’s yours! Hot and spicy with peppers or soaked in juices, the possibilities are endless.
No matter what you choose to eat, Chicago has the food you are craving!
