Krispy Kreme opens 1,000th store, giving away free 1,000,000 doughnuts

On Tuesday, doughnut maker Krispy Kreme will open its 1,000th shop in the world and is celebrating by giving away 1,000 doughnuts at each location.

The grand opening of the 1,000 shop is a location in Kansas City but the entire chain is celebrating by handing out free doughnuts. 1,000 at participating locations, to be exact. So with every store participating, that's 1,000,000 free doughnuts handed out to people just willing to get up a few minutes earlier.

There are two locations in Metro Detroit for you to get your free sweet for breakfast. One is at 208 W. 14 Mile Road in Troy and the other is at 15050 Southfield Road in Allen Park. The store in Troy opens at 6:00 AM while the store in Allen Park is open 24 hours.

The grand opening activities at the Kansas City store start at 6:00 AM Tuesday. The first 100 people in line there get a dozen free glazed doughnuts for a year.
