ROANOKE, VA -

Krispy Kreme has submitted an application to rezone a piece of property along Hershberger Road, where it says it plans to build a new store in Roanoke.

According to the application, which WSLS 10 has obtained, the company wants to build the new store next to the K&W cafeteria.  They plan to demolish a small appliance store that currently sits in that space to make room for the building and an expanded parking lot.

The 2,886 square foot building will have approximately 50 seats and a drive thru.  The location will also serve a bakery, so the donuts can be made on-site.

"It goes without saying that the Roanoke market is in great need for a new Krispy Kreme restaurant since the fire destroyed the Melrose Ave. location," the application says.  "Since that time, Krispy Kreme has been logistically moving products from its Winston-Salem headquarters up to the Roanoke market to serve kiosk locations in places such as grocery / convenience stores.  To meet market demand for the Krispy Kreme product a new, freestanding restaurant with drive thru is imperative."

Krispy Kreme is asking for a rezone because the current zoning on the property calls for the minimum lot size to be 1 acre.
