Mmm...can you smell it? Those delicious glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts are returning to Illinois.

WGN reports that after a seven year absence the company is opening their first of eight stores in Homewood, IL this November. Another store will be completed in 2017. By 2020 all seven stores will be open in the Chicagoland area.

Among the seven stores will also be their factory which will be based in Elkgrove, IL. After all the Chicagoland stores are up and running the company has plans to expand their franchise into the Greater Chicago area, which you know what that means?!  Rockford most definitely will be getting in on the action too!

Won't that be great?

I'm typically not a doughnut fan, but for Krispy Kreme, I will make an exception. They are the best when you get them hot and fresh straight from the oven. Oh yum, it's like a piece of heaven melting in your mouth.
