There is something seriously wrong with Wentzville, Missouri. The town has many things- from Chick Fil a to Mattress Firm and everything in between. But Wentzville is missing something, and it’s destroying the town.

It’s two words; Krispy Kreme.

“The donut places in Wentzville cannot stay in business, and I’d rather get some top tier donuts than running to a Schnucks,” said Rachel Nolte (‘20)

No hate on Schnucks, but it’s depressing that Wentzville does not have donuts that are made from the finest ingredients,

This is a town wide crisis. The nearest one is 17 miles away! How do you expect me to drive 17 miles to get my daily dose of donuts. It’s absolutely ridiculous.  

Wentzville needs a Krispy Kreme for many reasons, but a big reason is that we are a growing population and one donut shop is not going to work. Disasters will happen. Imagine this: you pull up to the one donut shop in Wentzville. The line is down the street, onto the highway. You get in line, you don’t leave for days. Once you finally get your donut you’re famished. You buy over 100 donuts causing your card to be declined. The world ends.

Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration. But it’s pretty close.

“We are a growing population with only one donut shop in town,” said Makenna Seghers (‘21).

A Krispy Kreme here would do very well, people from far and wide would come for the donuts. We could have fresh donuts made from the masters of donuts.

Also, donuts have been proven to be able to relieve stress in some people. Even if it’s a short amount of time, it could still help many people.

Wentzville, we need to band together and solve a crisis. We need to find a way to secure a future for a children, a future that includes a Krispy Kreme.
