(CNN) - Krispy Kreme is getting ready to go public.
On Tuesday, the donut company announced it has filed paperwork related to a public offering of its stock with the securities and exchange commission.
Krispy Kreme has been private since 2016, when it was bought by a private firm that invests in food and beverage brands.
The company has been working to remodel its stores in recent years.
Last summer, Krispy Kreme opened a lavish, 4500 sq. ft. store in Times Square.
Krispy Kreme says the number of shares that will be offered and their price range has not been determined.
It also said the IPO is expected to happen after the commission completes its review.
