Driving down the road a RED neon light flashes on that catches your eye: HOT NOW the sign reads… Original Glazed Krispy Kreme. If you’ve ever experienced a warm, melty Krispy Kreme donut then you know there is no going back. How did 2 brothers in Winston Salem set out to make the most awesome donuts on the planet? Let’s take a coffee break at the table and find out…

In 1933, Vernon Carver Rudolph, the founder of Krispy Kreme, bought a doughnut shop in Paducah, Kentucky, from a French chef from New Orleans. He received the company’s assets, goodwill, and the rights to a secret yeast-raised doughnut recipe. On this episode we are talking about the donuts that started in the South!
