Good news for the fans of the historic Ponce De Leon Krispy Kreme
The beloved Krispy Kreme that ended up in flames twice, has reopened this December as a pop-up doughnut shop! The historic location is partially owned by basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal.
You can expect a typical (and totally delicious) Krispy Kreme menu, with the beloved signature hot glazed doughnuts and other assorted classic flavors.
The drive-thru pop-up is open daily, starting at 7 a.m., and you must enter and exit the pop-up via Argonne Avenue.
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 thanks to O’Neal’s ownership. 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. The new shop is rumored to reopen some time in 2022. We will keep you posted with updates on the iconic Midtown Krispy Kreme on Ponce De Leon Avenue.
