$2 Dozens at Krispy Kreme today only

Posted: Updated:

MESA -- Krispy Kreme is celebrating the second anniversary of its return to the Valley with a sweet deal -- a dozen of their original glazed doughnuts for just $2.

Get 'em while they last!

Aerial video of the Mesa store at Power Road and U.S. 60 showed a huge line at 6:15 a.m.

The offer is good all day today only as long as there are glazed doughnuts to be had. There's a limit of two per person.

“I have to limit it to two per person while supplies last -- we haven’t run out of doughnuts yet, but you never know -- to ensure that I’m still in business the day AFTER our two-year anniversary!" said Doughnut Dan.

Those who were in line when the doors opened at 5:30 also received a 365-card which gets them a free doughnut and a free 12-ounce coffee every day for a year.

Doughnut Dan is hoping people will pay it forward by making a $2 donation to Homeward Bound, a Phoenix-based organization that assists homeless and domestic violence families with children to achieve economic independence, secure long-term, safe, decent, affordable housing and break multi-generational cycles of homelessness and domestic violence. . There are donation boxes at each store.

There are currently 11 Arizona Krispy Kreme locations, eight in Phoenix and three in Tucson.Two of the stores are factory stores, which can crank out 200 doughnuts per hour.
