Another company wants to enter the Costa Rica donut market. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc., said it has made an agreement with Inversiones DBA-KKD de Costa Rica, SRL, to open 10 branded shops here.
“Costa Rica’s rapid market growth and consumer demand for sweet treats makes this the perfect time for Krispy Kreme to expand in the country,” said the Winston-Salem, North Carolina, firm in a news release.
But for some reason donuts have not really taken off here as they have in other countries. There are some retail locations in the malls, and several firms, including the famous Dunkin’ Donuts, but expats might have trouble finding them, except at a few beach locations.
