Krispy Kreme strikes a deal with a college entrepreneur; Miami University beat Ohio 24-21

Today is Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

An enterprising college student in Minnesota who was told to shut down his thriving Krispy Kreme delivery service has struck a deal to continue delivery tasty treats.

Krispy Kreme hasn’t had a location in Minnesota since 2008, so when 21-year-old Jayson Gonzalez realized there was still a huge demand for donuts in his state, he decided to capitalize. 

Gonzalez was delivering donuts from neighboring Iowa to help pay for his college tuition, the Pioneer Press reported, but Krispy Kreme soon told him to end his marked-up resale. The company was worried that the long drive was degrading the quality of its donuts, CNN reported

Gonzalez’s hard work must have made a mark on Krispy Kreme, however. The company has reportedly had a change of heart, according to a statement given to *CNN. 

"Today, we reached out to Jayson to express our appreciation for his love of Krispy Kreme and admiration for his entrepreneurial spirit," a spokeswoman for Krispy Kreme told CNN. "We are going to help him achieve his goals, which include being debt-free when he graduates in 2021, in part by selling Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.”
