A popular donut chain is set to open a store in Astoria later this month.

Krispy Kreme, a North Carolina-based donut maker and coffee brewer, will open a store at 22-02 31st St. on Oct. 26, according to a company spokesperson.

The donut joint is moving into a space previously occupied by Starbucks, located on the busy corner of Ditmars Boulevard and 31st Street.

The Astoria store will be the company’s only location in Queens and will represent its eleventh in New York City. The company has more than 1,500 stores worldwide and has been in operation since 1937.

The shop will offer the company’s typical array of donut flavors including its specialty original glazed donut.

Other flavors include the self-described “chocolate iced glazed donut with sprinkles” and the “Reese’s classic donut” which comes filled with Reese’s peanut butter, dipped in Hershey’s chocolate and topped with peanut butter chips.

There will also be seasonal options for Halloween and Christmas.

Opening hours will be from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 7 a.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
