no, but they have special "laminated" dough.

lol, lamination is all about binding layers together tightly, usually by temp and pressure. croissants are all about seperate layers barely held together by a crust.

but if they're good, who can fault a baker for poor english?

i'll be looking for them, much like when krispy kremes came here.

i doubt the franchised ones will be the same as the originals.
