Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Trucks and Drivers

This view of eight Krispy Kreme Doughnuts trucks and their drivers was taken on Main Street in Salem just north of the intersection with Academy Street. The Krispy Kreme Doughnuts bakery and Welfare Drugstore can be seen to the left. The Miksch House, seen here with two second-story dormer windows to the right of the drugstore, was restored in 1960. The Miksch House was built in 1771 by Johann Matthaeus Miksch and was the home for he and his wife, Maria Christina Henrietta Petermann. The couple was granted permission by the Moravian Church to open a small shop in their house that sold candles, tobacco, and other products. The Miksch House today is an exhibit building for Old Salem Museums & Gardens. The Greek Revival building to the right was removed sometime after the middle of the twentieth century.

  1. The sixth salesman from the right is my dad Vernon Rudolph. This store did NOT have this many trucks, but brought trucks from Raleigh and Charlotte for the Christmas parade.
