“The new My Krispy Kreme Treats App is designed as a complement to our existing guest engagement offerings,” says Dwayne Chambers, Chief Marketing and Innovation Officer for Krispy Kreme. “The brand currently has a 900,000-member Friends of Krispy Kreme e-club, and its Hot Light App has had over 100,000 downloads since its launch.

The My Krispy Kreme Treats smartphone application works seamlessly with the brand’s existing POS technology. The App’s user-friendly functionality allows guests at shops in the initial test markets to store value and make mobile payments with a virtual gift-card, while earning reward points redeemable for free doughnuts, coffee and other beverages. App users receive a free doughnut for enrolling, a free doughnut and beverage on their birthday, and surprises and delights throughout the year.
