Improving the doughnut making process through innovations.

By now there was a small chain of stores, mostly family-owned. They all used the Krispy Kreme recipe, but each store made its doughnuts from scratch. For Rudolph and Krispy Kreme, the results were always good but not consistent enough. So Krispy Kreme built a mix plant and developed a distribution system that delivered the perfect dry doughnut mix to each Krispy Kreme store. Then Rudolph and his equipment engineers invented and built.


Krispy Kreme’s own doughnut-making equipment. From the 1950s on, they focused on improving and automating the doughnut-making process.
