Dunkin’ Donuts to open new restaurant at UAH in January, WOW eatery also coming to campus
HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – College students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville won’t have to leave campus to get their doughnut or coffee fix when the spring semester kicks off in January.
Dunkin’ Donuts announced Monday it will open restaurants at seven universities, including UAH, no later than January 2014. The restaurant at UAH will serve hot and iced coffee, espresso beverages, doughnuts, muffins, bagels and bakery and breakfast sandwiches.
UAH Director of Public Affairs Ray Garner said Dunkin’ Donuts, as well as a WOW (World of Wings) Cafe & Wingery, will open in the Charger Union building by Jan. 8, the same day spring semester classes start at the university. UAH currently operates a few other food and drink establishments, including Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, Papa John’s and more.
Grant Benson, vice president of franchising and business development for Dunkin’ Donuts, said the company offers a range of restaurant models to suit any university. The company did not give details about its plans for the Dunkin’ Donuts at UAH, whose franchisee is food services and facilities management provider Sodexo.
“Universities are increasingly looking for more amenities to offer campus residents and visitors, and our brand’s flexible design options couple convenience with great-tasting food and America’s favorite coffee,” he said. “As we continue our expansion, both east and west of the Mississippi, we have a continued focus on recruiting qualified operators to grow our presence at colleges around the country.”
Owned by local franchisee Blake Robinson, a new Dunkin’ Donuts on U.S. 72 between Target and Madison Hospital will open in November. It will be the second doughnut restaurant to open in North Alabama since last fall’s Dunkin’ Donuts grand opening on North Memorial Parkway.
Officials began conducting interviews Oct. 17 to fill 70 jobs at the Madison location. An employee at the North Memorial Parkway restaurant said Monday afternoon that applications for crew and baking positions are still being accepted.
In August 2011, the global retailer announced plans to build four new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the north Huntsville area over the next five years.
Other universities across the U.S. slated to get new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants by next year are Westfield University in Westfield, Mass.; Norwich University in Northfield, Vt.; Merrimack College in North Andover, Mass.; University of Rhode Island in Kingston, R.I.; Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass.; and Wayne State University in Detroit.
During the last two years, Dunkin’ Donuts has opened at several other colleges and universities, including Emory University, Providence College, University of Baltimore and Virginia Tech. The chain currently has up to 600 “non-traditional” locations, which are defined as college campuses, mass transit stations, travel centers, supermarkets and military bases.
By late 2012, the Massachusetts-based company was operating more than 10,500 Dunkin’ Donut stores worldwide, including more than 7,000 franchised restaurants in 36 U.S. states and more than 3,000 international shops in 30 countries. The first Dunkin’ Donuts opened in 1950.
