SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Krispy Kreme Donuts at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, the city’s only Krispy Kreme store, closed their doors on Friday, according to the San Francisco Business Times.
The newspaper that broke the news of the shutdown on Friday confirmed the story with representatives for the national company at its North Carolina headquarters.

“Unfortunately we had to close this location,” the representative said in an online message to the SF Business Times. “There are several factors of which the decline in tourism since we opened three years ago and the pandemic play a role. We are sad about it. “

The donut shop, which opened in December 2017, was next to the in-and-out burger on Jefferson Street. The restaurant is one of many companies that had to close due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. If the Krispy Kreme location had only stayed open for a few more days, it could have taken advantage of the city’s move to the Red Tier of COVID-19 restrictions that allow indoor eating.
