Krispy Kreme showing teachers appreciation with free coffee and doughnuts

Krispy Kreme wants to say thanks to teachers with a sweet treat while heading into an unprecedented back-to-school season this year.

The company introduces what it calls “Educator Appreciation Week” to acknowledge the teachers impacting lives in the classroom and beyond.

“Education is going to be very different this schoolyear and more challenging and important than ever. From teachers and tutors to parents and coaches we want to thank everyone who is helping our kids to keep learning in these tough times no matter where the ‘classroom’ is,” said Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme.

The pandemic proved that everyone has an important role in education, including many parents who homeschooled kids for the first time.

That’s why Krispy Kreme will also serve up a free “Straight A Dozen” for anyone who purchases a dozen doughnuts on Tuesday, Aug. 11. Share them with the educator in your life — teachers, mentors, parents, siblings, neighbors or friends.

Each “Straight A Dozen” includes three “Straight A” Doughnuts, filled with classic kreme, dipped in chocolate icing, topped with sprinkles and decorated with “A+,” lined up in a row, along with nine Original Glazed doughnuts. The dozen offer will be available at participating Krispy Kreme location via in-store, drive-thru or delivery.
