Doughnut lovers rejoice.

Krispy Kreme announced today that it will open 20 more shops across Southern California over the next seven years.

“We are thrilled to be growing our business in Southern California,” according to Roger Glickman, CEO of franchise owner Great Circle Family Foods, which already operates 11 Krispy Kreme shops in Southern California.

Only two of those are in Orange County, Mission Viejo and Orange.

“This commitment for an additional 20 stores is a reflection of our success with the Krispy Kreme brand, our outstanding system-leading same store sales growth and our confidence in the small factory shop model,” Glickman said.

The new shops will stick with the “small factory” design, and will feature drive-through windows.

Exact locations have not been revealed.

I hope their new locations are as difficult to get to as the one in Mission Viejo! It's what keeps me away. OK, now my mouth is watering....

No! We already have two good doughnut places in town.

Good luck trying to get that through the maze of staff at city hall.
