From Tuesday, May 8th through Friday, May 11th, the Krispy Kreme Corporation is offering a gift pack to four Krispy Kreme fans as part of a year long celebration of Krispy Kreme’s 75 years of tasty success. Trivia questions are based on the history of Krispy Kreme.

So, in the spirit of business history, here are some interesting findings about the international doughnut corporation that may come in handy for a bit of water cooler conversation, if nothing else.

The world-famous Original Glazed® doughnut first came about from a man named Vernon Rudolph who purchased a recipe and made the doughnuts using a screen, kettle and washtub,

The first Krispy Kreme doughnuts were made in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on July 13, 1937, in case you want to mark that date for the official birthday. By the end of the year, Rudolph had eight company trucks delivering doughnuts throughout the area, known today as the Triad.
