Popular doughnut chain Krispy Kreme are looking to bring their sweet treats to Norwich.

The eatery, famous for their classic ring doughnuts, are currently on the hunt for a venue in the city.

Judith Denby, chief marketing officer at Krispy Kreme UK, said: 'We are actively looking to bring the joy of Krispy Kreme to Norwich soon. We will keep our fans updated as and when we secure sites.'

In a poll ran by this paper following the announcement of the closure of Clas Ohlson in Chapelfield shopping centre, Krispy Kreme was one of the most popular suggestions from readers after they were asked what store they would like to see in the city and it is understood the doughnut chain could open up in Chapelfield.

The nearest Krispy Kreme store to Norfolk is in Cambridge.

Other stores people told us they'd like to see open at Chapefield range from fashion retailers such as Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters to eateries including burger chain Five Guys. Other popular ideas included a new craft store such as Axeminster.

As reported in April, Caffé Nero is opening up a new outlet in the shopping mall.
