Krispy Kreme is giving away free doughnuts at its outlets across the country this week in celebration of the opening of the company's 1,000th store.

The doughnut chain opened store No. 1,000 in Kansas City, Kansas, Tuesday and offered up one free glazed doughnut to the first 1,000 customers who lined up at any of its stores around the world, the Kansas City Sun Times reported

"What's even better than a free doughnut? The first 100 people to show up at the new store in Kansas City, Kansas, win a dozen free doughnuts per month for a year," the newspaper noted. "That's a lot of fried, glazed dough for free."

Krispy Kreme fans lined up early at the new Kansas City location to make sure they could take advantage of the free doughnut offer.



"We are extremely proud of this latest accomplishment and we are looking forward to sharing this joyful occasion with the millions of fans who enjoy our products in countries around the world," Tony Thompson, CEO and president of Krispy Kreme, said in a company statement.

While most of is the company's stores are in the United States, Krispy Kreme has outlets around the globe, including in Australia, Dominican Republic, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom, according to its website.

Other customers appeared to be appreciative of the free doughnuts as well.



Alison Griswold of Slate.com said the free doughnut marketing effort is already proving good for Krispy Kreme's business.

"Krispy Kreme is due to report its fourth-quarter earnings in mid-March," Griswold reported Tuesday. "In the prior quarter, the company said sales at stores open at least a year rose 3.7 percent domestically but declined by almost three percent internationally. As for today? Its stock is up 1.9 percent so far. Wall Street apparently likes free doughnuts."
