Krispy Kreme Jobs

What is the age required to work at Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee? If you love their delicious donuts and like the idea of working at a bakery then this may suit you well. But before you get too happy you want to know how old you have to be to get a job there first, right?

work at Krispy Kreme Well, the answer is, it depends. Why? Because these doughnut shop jobs are at the discretion of the franchise/business owner. I have called around to a few different locations. Most of them said they hire at 16 years old, while others said that you have to be at least 18 years old.

So the minimum age require to work at Krispy Kreme is 16 years old. But you should call or take a visit to the local store that you were interested in applying to in order to find out their specific rules regarding hiring teens.


This corporation was started back in 1937. So they have been in business for over 70 years. They can be contacted at:

Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation P.O. Box 83 Winston-Salem, NC 27102 or 1-800-4KRISPY (1-800-457-4779)

In order to become of those franchise owners who have the authority to hire you to work one of those jobs you have to put out up front at least $1,000,000 in liquid assets (which means cash), and a combined net worth of $2,000,000 (which includes, property, stocks, bond, cd's, cash, etc.).

After hearing those numbers regarding how much of an invest these potential employers are making you can understand better why some store owners might be a little picky. Theay have a lot to lose if they don't hire the right employees they could lose a LOT of money.

When you hire teenagers to work in your business you also have higher insurance rates. Not only do you have to protect and insure the employee, but also any damages that may come to your customers, property, and equipment. There are many legal issues that are added on when you employ teenagers under 18.

But don't get discouraged. If you are not at least 16 currently there are still jobs out there for just about every age. Click on your age to find out what they are!
