The iconic building first caught on fire in February, and then once again in July. Both fires caused significant damage to the property, with the cause of the second fire still to be determined. The cause of February fire was ruled as arson.


Krispy Kreme opened on Ponce in 1965, and became an iconic part of the ATL due to O’Neal. The hotspot was also home to a drive-thru window, and was the only kosher Krispy Kreme in Atlanta.

What happens after the pop-up is up in the air. We will keep you posted with updates on the iconic Midtown Krispy Kreme on Ponce De Leon Avenue.
