Dubai: the Middle East meets the world with astonishing results

A period of extraordinary activity has transformed Dubai into one of the most modern and luxurious cities on the planet. The world’s tallest tower, a series of man-made islands, gigantic aquariums, indoor ski slopes and seven-star hotels make Dubai one of the world’s fastest-growing tourist destinations. But don’t be fooled into thinking there is nothing more to Dubai than glitz and glamour. Scratch the surface and the heartbeat of a multicultural, multifaceted city still beats strong.

US doughnut and coffee chain Editors' Note

The first Krispy Kreme in UAE was opened in the Deira City Centre shopping mall in 2007, and it found an immediate success. Today, there are 13 branches in Dubai, where customers enjoy the tasty and fresh doughnuts straight off the line.

Krispy Kreme survived here, despite the direct competition with Dunkin Donuts. Although they sell almost identical products, the Krispy Kreme signature Hot Original Glazed ensured the success of the company at the mall, and paved the way for all the other branches opened in Dubai in the past years.
