Krispy Kreme orders student to halt doughnut resale service - 47abc

21-year-old Jayson Gonzalez was doing just that, but now a donut company is telling him to please stop. He then hauled the boxes - each one holding a dozen donuts - all the way back up to Minneapolis and resold them for roughly double the original price. "I am happy that things turned out positive, and this can continue to strive and grow over the next couple of years", he said on his Facebook post announcing the deal.

Krispy Kreme said its primary concern is that the doughnuts Gonzalez sells maintain its "high product quality standards, given the distance and manner in which he is transporting and distributing them".

The confectionary giant said in its statement Monday that the "temporary stoppage" was to ensure product quality and regulatory compliance.

'We wish Jayson great success and we're thrilled to help him achieve it by donating 500 dozen doughnuts when he re-starts, ' the company added.

You see, there are no Krispy Kreme locations in all of Minnesota, making it virtually impossible to live in the land of the 10,000 lakes and also regularly enjoy the mouth-watering treats.

The 21-year-old would drive 270 miles to a Krispy Kreme store in Clive, Iowa, pack his vehicle with up to 100 boxes, each carrying 12 donuts, then drive back up north to deliver them to customers in Minneapolis-St Paul.

The company said in a statement Monday that Jayson Gonzalez of Champlin can now work with Krispy Kreme as an independent operator. Their message? Stop re-selling our donuts.

Unfortunately, his popularity resulted in a brief story in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and once that article was published it was only a matter of time before Krispy Kreme learned of his unauthorized reselling scheme.

"Today, we reached out to Jayson to express our appreciation for his love of Krispy Kreme and admiration for his entrepreneurial spirit", a spokeswoman for Krispy Kreme tells CNN.

However, on what would have been his 20th run, Gonzalez was contacted by Krispy Kreme and told to "shut down operations", claiming it was a liability for the chain.

"Hi all! I bear some bad news", Gonzalez wrote on his Krispy Kreme Run Facebook page. He teased the possibility of "entrepreneurial adventures" to come in his parting Facebook post.
