Krispy Kreme reverses course, allows student doughnut resale service

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — There’s a sweet ending for a Minnesota college student who has been going in circles to sell hundreds of boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts every weekend.

Jayson Gonzalez had faced a sticky situation when Krispy Kreme warned him to stop reselling the sugary confections in the Twin Cities every weekend after transporting hundreds of boxes in his car from an Iowa town. He had been driving 270 miles and then charging $17 to $$20 dollars per box. Krispy Kreme said it had lability concerns.

The company has now glazed over its issues and says Gonzalez, an accounting major at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, can operate as an independent contractor. And it’s sprinkled the agreement with a 500-dozen doughnut donation.
