WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 16, 2014-- This holiday season, Krispy Kreme is giving its fans a place to hang out and share a doughnut, coffee and virtual conversation with friends they haven't met yet. Using Google's Hangouts live videoconferencing technology, the Krispy Kreme Joy Goes Around Holiday Hangouts is a global in-store experience that lets fans stopping in the shop for their favorite holiday treat, send and receive holiday messages from other doughnut lovers at participating Krispy Kreme® doughnut shops around the world.

"At Krispy Kreme, we believe that joy, no matter where it comes from, is contagious," explains Dwayne Chambers, Chief Marketing and Information Offer, Krispy Kreme.
