- Krispy Kreme has announced that they have eliminated about 90 corporate positions and will be setting up offices in Charlotte and London in 2018.

News of layoffs at Krispy Kreme comes a year after the company sold itself for $1.35 billion to JAB Beech, a Luxembourg-based investment firm that also owns Keurig Green Mountain, Peet's Coffee & Tea and Caribou Coffee. To create the most awesome doughnut experience imaginable, we must succeed in new arenas such as digital evolution as well as focus significant efforts behind consumer convenience and new product innovation.

The company added it will provide severance, a bonus and health and outplacement benefits to affected workers.

"We deeply appreciate their contributions to the Company and will assist them as much as possible during this hard time by providing severance, 2017 bonus, and health and outplacement benefits", Sarah Roof Garling, Manager of Corporate Communications, said in a statement.

We deeply value our heritage and attachment to Winston-Salem and will continue to invest in the area.

A majority of employees will stay in Winston-Salem but some will relocate, the company said.
