AKRON, Ohio - Krispy Kreme made a stop in Akron as part of its "Glaze the Nation Tour 2012." It's all in celebration of the company's 75th birthday.
The Krispy Kreme Doughnut truck stopped at Paladin Construction Group to show appreciation for over 150 workers, giving away free doughnuts provided by one of the oldest Krispy Kreme shops in Akron.
