Dunkin' Donuts will go before the Duluth Planning Commission tonight in hopes that all is approved for a new location at 104 West Central Entrance. We're excited to show you just what Minnesota's second and northern Minnesota's first Dunkin' Donuts restaurant will look like.
Designed by Scalzo Architects of Duluth, Dunkin' Donuts will sport a modern design that showcases the brands fun and iconic color scheme. A complete renovation of the interior and exterior of the former Warehouse Liquor building will allow for a completely new take on the structure and its design. What was once a liquor store will be home to the delicious smells of freshly roasted coffee and of course those delicious donuts.
The 2,450 square foot space features dining space to the front with kitchen and prep area tucked to the back. The interior shows seating for around 26 people at both tables and booths. This location will also feature a drive thru which is sure to be a hit when the coldest of northern Minnesota's winter days hit.
All should go well for Dunkin' Donuts when they present to the Duluth Planning Commission tonight. The only catch would be that the parking plan shows 23 spaces which may require a revision as the site is technically allowed only 22 spaces. But in the grand scheme of things that's a very minor hiccup and nothing to be concerned about.
Construction could begin as soon as April and delicious Dunkin' Donuts coffee and donuts could be in your hands by the end of Summer.
