Krispy Kreme Now Allowing Student To Have Doughnut Resale Service

An enterprising Minnesota college student who drove to Iowa every weekend to buy hundreds of Krispy Kreme doughnuts that he then sold to his own customers in the Twin Cities area had been warned by Krispy Kreme to stop. There have been no Krispy Kreme stores in Minnesota for 11 years. 21-year-old Jayson Gonzalez of Champlin, Minnesota, would drive 270 miles to a Krispy Kreme store in Clive, Iowa, pack his car with up to 100 boxes, each carrying 12 doughnuts, then drive back up north to deliver them to customers in Minneapolis-St. Paul. He charged $20 per box. He said some of his customers spent nearly $100 each time. Jayson said he did not receive a discount from the store in Iowa where he bought the doughnuts. But less than a week after the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported on his money-making scheme, Jayson received a phone call from Krispy Kreme’s Nebraska office telling him to stop. The senior studying accounting at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul said he was told his sales created a liability for the North Carolina-based company. In a statement Sunday night, Krispy Kreme said it was looking into the matter. Well, the backlash on social media against Krispy Kreme was so huge, they're now allowing Jayson to continue his business, calling him "an independent operator".
