“We’re really excited about the opportunity of opening a store in the centre of Perth, which is the most populated inner city in Australia,” he said.
“The CBD has been a haven for Krispy kreme, which has made it a natural fit for us.”
“It’s also the most vibrant part of Perth in terms of restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs, everything.”

There’s just so much more to be done in Perth than what we’ve done in the US,” Mr Taylor said.
He said the company was aiming to open a total of 120 outlets by 2021, with a new branch opening in the inner city of the city at the end of the year.”
In the future, we expect to continue expanding in the area around the city,” he told the ABC.”
But right now, we’re really focused on the new store opening, which will open on March 23.
“This is the biggest investment that we’ve made in the entire company, and it’s an opportunity that we’re very excited to take.”
The company was formed in 1990 in the U.S. by Mr Taylor and his brother David, who co-own the now-defunct Burger King franchise in Los Angeles.
“It started as a restaurant in Los Angles,” Mr Krieghas said.”[But] we realized that our burger business was going to be so important to our growth, so we expanded to the US, opened a restaurant here in the States, and that really started the chain.”
He said that he and his brothers had been in the restaurant business for 25 years, and said that it was the first time that the brothers felt they had enough money to put their name on a chain.
“I was very fortunate to have been the owner of the company for 25 and a half years, but it was definitely the start of something big,” Mr Cole said.’
The first day’The Krieglas opened a second restaurant, The Great Western, in New York in 2003, and the chain grew to more than 300 restaurants in the USA and around the globe.
“So that’s our first day in the country, and I think it was very, very hard work,” Mr Witte said.
In a statement, the Kriegs said that the expansion would provide them with “the most robust, state-of-the-art food service and menu in the industry” in Perth.
“Having opened the franchise in New Zealand in the early 1990s, our Australian roots are deep and we know that our customers are passionate about the way we deliver quality, unique and delicious food,” the statement said.
Krieglis CEO Mr Taylor was recently awarded the prestigious McDonald’s Japan Award.
Mr Taylor said that having been in business for so long, the family had always had an appetite for new ideas.
“To be the first to launch our first Australian location was a great honor, and one that we are looking forward to delivering,” he explained.
