Before 7 a.m., the Krispy Kreme store off Highway 98 in Wake Forest had more than a dozen cars in the drive-thru, and the line of customers inside the store spilled onto the sidewalk.
It was a similar scene around the Triangle Friday morning as people celebrate Krispy Kreme's birthday.
Krispy Kreme opened in 1937 in North Carolina.
