Dunkin’ Donuts Moving Into 351 Grand Street

Seward Park got its 7-Eleven (i.e. in progress), but Dunkin’ Donuts never really gave up the fight. Recall that both were in the running for the small strip of Grand Street east of Essex owned by the Co-op; the old Roots & Vines and Grand Spa respectively. Now the dough slingers really are setting up shop, albeit nearby. Permits filed with the DOB in late May indicate the corporate chain is headed to 351 Grand Street, which previously held the Grand Health Pharmacy (now located next door).

The move is basically a declaration of war on two popular neighborhood businesses within close reach. Flowers Cafe is gonna shit the bed since it’s just a few doors away; Doughnut Plant, on the other hand, probably doesn’t care too much due to its superior product.

This new Dunkin’ Donuts location is not yet listed in the company’s online store locator, but comes on the heels of news about 500 franchise locations across the city.

How do you feel about Dunkin’ Donuts opening in this neck of the woods?
