Dunkin' Donuts closes for 2-month renovation

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

OCEAN CITY – If your world runs on Dunkin, you’ll be running elsewhere for your fix for the next two months.

Starting Monday, the store closed for renovations that include replacing the concrete parking lot with asphalt, installing a drive-through, adding an outdoor seating area, and updating the facade to match the appearance of newer Dunkin Donuts outlets in the area.

Frank Hernandez of Leadbeaters in Tuckerton, foreman for the project, said the improvements are planned to give the store a more modern look and to provide customers with more convenience. Because the project was delayed for two weeks, the store will most likely be closed through Memorial Day weekend.

Despite the ring of orange cones around the perimeter of the parking lot, customers continually tried to enter the premises Monday. Only a small sign taped to the door – “Store is close for renovation. Sorry for inconvenience” – explained the darkened interior.

The Ocean City store is owned by Arun Mandi, who owns 24 Dunkin’ Donuts stores in southern New Jersey. The renovation of this store is one of a half-dozen relocations or remodels he has planned for 2012. He also owns the former Wendy’s at Route 9 and Roosevelt Boulevard in Marmora, which is scheduled to be renovated this year.
