A Krispy Kreme donut and coffee shop is under construction in the city of Harrisonburg, Virginia, with an opening date of December 13, 2016.

The designated location has been established as the former Shoney’s restaurant on 35 Burgess Road.

The nearest Krispy Kreme locations to the Woodstock/Edinburg area are located in the cities of Fredericksburg, Roanoke, and Richmond. With the opening of a Krispy Kreme in Harrisonburg, a much closer and more frequently visited city of Central High School’s students, the store will automatically become popular for teenagers with a sweet tooth.

A survey was sent out to students of CHS, and it revealed supporting results. Over thirty percent of the students claimed that they visited Harrisonburg at least once a month. In contrast, approximately eighty two percent of students reported that they rarely or never visit Fredericksburg, Roanoke, or Richmond.

Almost half of the students answered that they had never been to a Krispy Kreme shop and thirty-seven percent had only been once or twice. However, seventy percent of the students claim they would make a trip to the upcoming Krispy Kreme every now and then, as well as another twenty percent claim that they would stop in every single time they went to Harrisonburg.

The poll revealed that students are more likely and more frequently to attend a Krispy Kreme donut shop now that it will be a shorter distance to travel. Because the current shops are relatively far away, the opening in Harrisonburg is foreseen to be a big hit for our high school students.
