Checkers has partnered with Krispy Kreme to bring the globally recognised and much-loved doughnuts to its stores, and direct to homes via its Sixty60 delivery app.
Customers in selected areas serviced by Sixty60 will be able to order their doughnuts directly on the app – at in-store prices – and have them delivered to their door within 60 minutes.
Shoppers will also be able to order individually packaged doughnuts for special occasions from the Party Shops in selected Checkers Hyper stores. This service will initially be rolled out at the newly revamped Checkers Hyper Brackenfell.
Fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts will be delivered daily to Checkers supermarkets, ensuring that customers are served with only the freshest doughnuts.
The following Checkers supermarkets will have Krispy Kreme doughnuts available from end June 2021:
- Blueberry Square (opening 23 June)
- Woodlands Boulevard
- Hyper Brackenfell
- Hyper Gateway
Additional stores will be added in the following months, including Constantia, Stellenbosch, Sea Point and Durbanville in the Western Cape; Castle Gate, Neighbourhood, Rosebank and Hyper Sandton in Gauteng; and Mount Richmore Village and Cornubia in KwaZulu-Natal.
The Checkers partnership with Krispy Kreme follows other successful in-store brand collaborations, including Kauai and Starbucks. Checkers was recently named the most reputable brand in South Africa, as it continues to grow its share of the premium grocery sector.
