VACAVILLE — They came by the dozens throughout the day Monday, each set to claim a shot at free doughnuts for a year.

That’s the prize for the first 100 customers to step through the doors early Tuesday as Krispy Kreme Doughnuts opens up shop in the greater Nut Tree retail area.

Some 70 people had secured their place in line by midafternoon Monday. They did not need to queue up immediately – instead they were checked in and given wristbands, and admonished to remain in the area. As the afternoon wore on into early evening, though, people took their places.

The first person in line when the store opens Tuesday will receive one free dozen original glazed doughnuts a week for a year, plus a grand opening T-shirt. The next 99 in line will receive a free dozen glazed doughnuts a month for a year, in addition to the T-shirt. The next 50 in line will receive a commemorative T-shirt.

The Krispy Kreme shop is located at 1620 E. Monte Vista Ave., Suite 102.

    Well it figures that Vacaville would get another great business leaving Fairfield in the dust. I think Fairfield may have been considered, but with all the bullets flying in town Krispy Kremes figured they'd end up with more holes in their donuts than intended. Hey but where could a safer place than a donut shop be, after all since half of the cops in town would be hangout out there :-)

    Great lesson to teach one's child. WORK & JOB do not matter. Employment - not important. Sitting around wasting time to get unhealthy (but good tasting) donuts .. now that's important.

    No threat to Jelly Donut. It's like comparing Baldo's to Taco Bell. (Oh I would love a #24 this morning!)
