Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme is a family owned company – by the fifth and third generations of the Smith family.

They still believe in the Krispy Kreme image: being an All-American product with All-American values with an emphasis on giving back to the community.

Krispy Kreme was founded in 1960 by T. W. (now deceased) and Frances Smith (now 84 years old). Krispy Kreme offers you their #1 product, still bringing excitement to the Tuscaloosa community even after 53 years.

Motto: “Krispy Kreme, Hot Now & Anytime!”

Founded:1960

Led by: Evan Smith

This is truly a favorite family owned business! The Smith family shows the more you give to the community, the more you get back. On, April 27, 2011 Tuscaloosa, Al was hit by an F4 tornado. This tornado went for 5 miles on the ground, devastating everything in its path. Krispy Kreme was one of the establishments on this path. Over a year later, Krispy Kreme has now re-opened in the Tuscaloosa/Northport communities. During the opening day and for weeks to follow, police had to direct traffic because of the long lines to enter Krispy Kreme.

The Tuscaloosa community has truly profited from the  generosity of the Smith family!
