Royals and Krispy Kreme team up for 2006
Fan-favorite "Krispy Kreme Dozen for a Dozen" promotion returns for 2006 season
KANSAS CITY -- One of the most popular and tasty promotions in baseball, Krispy Kreme's "Dozen for a Dozen", is back for its fourth season at Kauffman Stadium in 2006.
The basics remain the same: When the Royals collect a dozen hits or more in any single game at Kauffman Stadium, fans can redeem their ticket stub from that game for a dozen free original glazed doughnuts at any Kansas City area Krispy Kreme store.
"We are thrilled to partner with Krispy Kreme for a fourth season on what we believe is the best promotion in Major League Baseball," said Royals Senior Director of Marketing Kim Hillix Burgess. "We look forward to hearing Royals fans chant 'We Want Doughnuts' all summer long."
"We at Krispy Kreme are very excited about once again participating in the "Dozen for a Dozen" promotion with the Royals," said Market Manager for Krispy Kreme Mike Parker. "We are looking forward to a great season."
The ballclub collected 12 or more hits in 19 games at "The K" in 2005, meaning fans scored nearly 3.5 million Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. In the three year history of the promotion, fans have had the chance to redeem more than 14 million free doughnuts.
Outlined below are the redemption rules for 2006:
Ticket stubs must be redeemed Monday through Friday.
Ticket stubs must be redeemed within 30 days of the game date.
One ticket per customer per visit.
Free doughnuts are only available at the three Kansas City area Krispy Kreme stores, no satellite locations.
