The most anticipated store opening in Cagayan de Oro City right now is Krispy Kreme.
After the opening tomorrow, we expect lesser number of CDO-bound airline passengers carrying Krispy Kreme boxes as “pasalubongs”. Instead, KK boxes will now be very visible in the city and the region as they have become more accessible for customers.
Photos below taken yesterday, November 13, during a special function 2 days before the store opening. The facade is just about finished except for some minor cleaning at the roof ledge.
Some workers are still seen at the back of the drive-thru area of the store.
The sign says it all…
Inside the store, Krispy Kreme crew just can’t wait for the opening.
