RIVERDALE — What’s coming next to the already bustling Riverdale Road? Doughnuts.

Krispy Kreme has set its sights on opening a location on the former Best Burger lot at 4210 Riverdale Road, according to planning documents filed with Riverdale City.

The Riverdale City Planning Commission will discuss the preliminary site plan and plat for the proposal at its Tuesday, Nov. 28, meeting. If approved, the planning commission will then consider approving final site plans at a future meeting. 

The store will be part of a subdivision in Riverdale called The Riverdale Landing.

Krispy Kreme was founded in North Carolina in the 1930s and has more than 1,000 locations worldwide. Krispy Kreme has a store in Layton at 968 N. Main St. and another location will open in Logan soon, according to its website.
