Workers at an industrial hub in the western part of town will soon have a new place to get their morning brew.
Dunkin’ Donuts is opening a shop on Grant Road and Flowing Wells, just east of Interstate 10.
The 2,175-square-foot shop will not be a double-brand with Baskin-Robbins ice cream, as are some stores in the Tucson area.
Insert sad emoji here.
The Dunkin’ Donuts at 1066 W. Grant Road will have hot and cold coffee drinks, donuts, pastries and the famous munchkins donut holes that the company debuted in 1972.
