Krispy Kreme is not only incentivizing its employees to get vaccinated for COVID-19, it’s also sweetening the deal for everyone else.

Starting March 22, anyone who shows a valid COVID-19 vaccination card at any Krispy Kreme location in the U.S. can receive a free Original Glazed doughnut. The offer is available is anytime and any day — even every day – through the remainder of 2021. Krispy Kreme also will support health care workers and volunteers who are helping administer vaccines, delivering free doughnuts to select vaccination centers throughout the country in the coming weeks.

For its employees, Krispy Kreme is offering up to four hours of paid time off each to help encourage and enable their COVID-19 vaccinations. 

“We all want to get COVID-19 behind us as fast as possible and we want to support everyone doing their part to make the country safe by getting vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available to them,” said Dave Skena, chief marketing officer, Krispy Kreme.

In addition, Krispy Kreme will offer one free medium coffee and a free Original Glazed doughnut, no purchase necessary, every Monday, March 29 through May 24.

Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corp. has nearly 1,400 retail shops in 33 countries.
