Krispy Kreme closing NOW!
Krispy Kreme closing its Rochester shop today. So head to Miracle Mile by 6 p.m., if you want the last of Med City's fresh doughnuts from this company.
After all of the hype, it turned out to be a short run. I wonder what George Bayrd, the manager of Miracle Mile, will line up to go into that building.
I wrote about Glazed Investments decision to open in Rochester back in September of 2004.
Here's some from that piece that featured more doughnut-related words per sentence than a Krispy Kreme has calories:

Let the drooling begin: Rochester to get Krispy Kreme store
The eyes of Rochester doughnut fans may glaze over this fall.
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is coming.
The Krispy Kreme franchisee for this region, Glazed Investments L.L.C., has signed a deal to build a 4,800-square-foot shop at the Miracle Mile Shopping Center.
Glazed Investments now will start acquiring city permits and approvals.
The proposed location is south of TGI Friday's restaurant and north of the former Carson Pirie Scott department store.
It will be a standard Krispy Kreme shop with counter service, a drive-through and some limited seating. And, of course, the famous doughnut-making machines that can crank out 220 dozen doughnuts in a hour. This will be the eighth Krispy Kreme store in Minnesota.
