    Wrong. What Ubereats does is they sign contracts with restaurants and franchises it sells its delivery services to. I imagine within that contract is quality assurances from the delivery person. If restaurants and franchises don’t sign they open an even bigger liability. I bet that is one of the arguments I would make if I was their lawyers in this lawsuit

    [...]

    On Monday, he said he actually got a call from the folks at Krispy Kreme headquarters.

    "I am pumped to announce that I will be able to continue the business soon, and have the support of Krispy Kreme. They want to ensure I become an authorized third party seller and make sure the brand is represented well," he wrote.

    To make his operation a bit more official, Gonzalez started a GoFundMe page to raise money for a bigger delivery car.

    Krispy Kreme issued a statement confirming they would be helping Gonzalez out with his business:

    "Today, we reached out to Jayson to express our appreciation for his love of Krispy Kreme and admiration for his entrepreneurial spirit. We are going to help him achieve his goals, which include being debt-free when he graduates in 2021, in part by selling Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Our intent regarding the temporary stoppage of him selling doughnuts was to ensure product quality and regulatory compliance to protect both Jayson and Krispy Kreme. Our main concern is that the doughnuts Jayson sells maintain our high product quality standards, given the distance and manner in which he is transporting and distributing them. So, we are happy to work with Jayson as an independent operator to ensure consistent delivery of our high quality doughnuts to our fans in Minnesota. We wish Jayson great success and we’re thrilled to help him achieve it by donating 500 dozen doughnuts when he re-starts his business."

    It’s currency at that point.

    Using my MauryGm app, I was able to conclude he made a profit of $1,140 on each trip after gas. If he went on 20 runs, that put's him at a total of $22,800 for debts.
    Doughy dreams are made of these, a baker's destiny is reaching the Gs, who am I to disagree...


    Nike gets upset over people reselling their kicks too.

    Still don't think it would matter. The kid might have been violating some food permit ordinance, but so long as he wasn't misrepresenting his relationship to Krispy Kreme to customers, I don't think Krispy Kreme has any claim to make. All they can do is make life difficult for him by sending in the lawyers,

    And, I'm not surprised. His business seems to show there would be opportunity for some franchise location there. Bringing him into the fold seemed like the obvious answer.

    For glazed, nobody beats KK, but Shipley's has stuff KK doesn't even offer.

    To be fair hot and fresh donuts from Krispy Kreme are great.

    Best donuts in Texas. No bullshit. Shipleys turn into bread rocks after 30 mins. I've never had a donut that will melt in your mouth like a Krispy Kreme. I don't even like donuts and they changed my mind.
