Dunkin’ Donuts Eyes Second Location in Lakewood
Coffee-and-doughnut giant to present plans to the city’s architectural board of review next week.
There may be another drive-thru restaurant setting up shop in Lakewood.
Dunkin’ Donuts is eyeing a second location in the city, this one at 1528 W. 117th Street, near the intersection of Franklin Boulevard.
Bhavesh Patel, an area Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee, recently submitted plans — along with Phillips/Sekanick Architects — to the city’s architectural board of review.
The property sits just north of the Shell gas station, where two homes were recently demolished. While a purchase agreement is in the works, the property is owned by Berea-based Self Service Mini Storage.
The new fast-food restaurant would employee at least six people, according to the plans.
The proposal shows a 2,200-square-foot brick building — with a 25-foot front yard setback — that would feature a dine-in area as well as a drive-thru, according to the plans submitted to the ABR.
The drive-thru would consist of one lane toward the back of the property with the ability to “stack” 10 cars; the plans also show a bypass lane around the entire site perimeter to allow traffic flow.
Plans also show 15 parking spaces on the property — six of which would be for employees.
