& # 39; Today we contacted Jayson to express our appreciation for his love for Krispy Kreme and admiration for his entrepreneurial spirit, & # 39; the statement began. & # 39; We are happy to work with Jayson as an independent operator to ensure consistent delivery of our high-quality donuts to our fans in Minnesota.

Prior to the entrepreneurial work of Gonzalez Donuts with Krispy Kreme have not been available in Minnesota for 11 years.
The 21-year-old would drive 270 miles to a Krispy Kreme store in Clive, Iowa, pack his car with up to 100 boxes, each with 12 donuts, and then drive back north to deliver them to customers in Minneapolis-St Paul .
He charged $ 17 to $ 20 per box and says that some of his customers spend nearly $ 100 each time.
A box of a dozen donuts sold in a Krispy Kreme store cost between $ 8 and $ 12.
Gonzalez said he didn't get a discount from the store in Iowa, where he bought the donuts.
Photos from the Krispy Kreme Run Minnesota Facebook page, which is managed by Gonzalez, shows him at numerous locations in the Twin Cities region with the boxes of donuts.
The boxes are seen packed in his trunk and in his back seat while customers meet him at the pick-up locations.
But less than a week after the St Paul Pioneer Press reported on his money-making schedule, Gonzalez received a phone call from Krispy Kreme's office in Nebraska stopping him from stopping.
The university senior, who is studying accounting at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, said he was told that his sale has created an obligation for the North Carolina-based company.

In a statement on Sunday evening, Krispy Kreme said it was investigating the matter.
& # 39; We appreciate Jayson's passion for Krispy Kreme and his entrepreneurial spirit as he continues his education & # 39 ;, is the statement.
His last weekend run was on October 26 and included eight locations: Burnsville, Bloomington, Minnetonka, St Louis Park, Little Canada, Fridley, Brooklyn Park and Coon Rapids.
Gonzalez, also known as & # 39; The Donut Guy & # 39 ;, would have made his 20th point to Iowa on Saturday.
But he told his Facebook followers on Thursday that he was told to close the operations.
& # 39; Life happens and it can be a sign that it was something else, & # 39; Gonzalez told in a post on the Facebook page of Krispy Kreme Run Minnesota.

However, in a post on Monday's personal Facebook page, Gonzalez wrote: & # 39; When one door closes, another door opens. During this experience I got to know many more possibilities that would never have been possible without the hype.
& # 39; What I thought was a disappointment turned out to be something better. Moreover, the work must continue quickly, woo-hoo! Thank you everyone! & # 39;
Neither party has yet offered a specific date on which Gonzalez will officially begin its collaboration with Krispy Kreme.
Gonzales has since had one GoFundMe page to raise money for a larger van to enlarge his company after he received more than 2,000 likes on his company Facebook page this weekend.
