A Minnesota college student who drove 500 miles to Iowa every weekend to buy dozens of Krispy Kreme donuts and sell them to customers was warned by the company to end his business.
According to Fox2Detroit, 21-year-old Jayson Gonzalez spent his weekends driving from Champlin, Minnesota to a Krispy Kreme in Clive, Iowa and purchased 100 boxes. After picking up his orders, Gonzalez would drive back to Minneapolis-St. Paul to deliver the goods to his customers for $17 dollars. Almost a week after his business was reported by the St.Paul Pioneer Press, Gonzalez was contacted by Krispy Kreme’s Nebraska office and was told to put an end to it all on Thursday.
The Metropolitan State University senior told his Facebook followers that the company said his business became a liability and that he would have to stop selling the donuts for good.
“Life happens, and it could be a sign that something else is meant to be,”
Gonzalez initially started the business to put himself through college but created a business since there were no Krispy Kreme locations in Minnesota.
But now, Gonzalez announced Monday that the company has allowed him to become an independent operator and hopes he will represent the brand in a positive way.
“They want to ensure I become an independent operator and make sure the brand is represented well.”
