US doughnut retailer Krispy Kreme has announced plans to open an outlet in Dublin.

The chain is set to open its first Irish offering at the Blanchardstown Centre, according to the Irish Independent.

However no date has yet been revealed.

The company had been scouting potential sites in the capital for a site that would feature a production unit and a cafe selling the doughnuts.

Headquartered in North Carolina, Krispy Kreme was founded in 1937.

Its doughnuts are sold in 12,000 locations around the US.

The company has more than 1,300 retail shops in 31 countries.

As well as doughnuts, the retailer offers coffees and other cold drinks.
