The Krispy Kreme location near 16th and Chestnut streets is calling it quits. The national chain’s local franchisee, Brian Zaslow, plans to pull the plug after wrapping up service on Sunday, December 30, according to the Insider. Before you go pointing your finger at the second Federal Donuts location, which opened around the corner at 16th and Sansom in October, as the cause, factor in that the location has been available for sublease since last summer. All of the operation’s doughnut-making and glazing gear is going to a new Krispy Kreme that’s coming to Havertown. [Insider]
