I'd be lying if I said this didn't make me a *little bit* happy.  Dunkin' Donuts are coming back to Grand Rapids!

Ten  new Dunkin' Donuts will be open in the GR area by 2018.  The first one will be open by next year.  No word on where it will be.

I'm thinkin' coffee.  No, I'm thinkin' hot chocolate.  Wait, why not have some donuts?

From the PR Newswire press release:

During July 2012, Sack of Donuts, LLC, led by brothers Mike and Andy Knapick, signed its first multi-unit store development for eight new restaurants between Kalamazoo, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana. The first of these stores opened in Kalamazoo earlier this fall with the first two South Bend stores planned to open in late November and early 2013. 

"We are excited to expand Dunkin' Donuts' presence in Grand Rapids and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here," said Mike Knapick, Dunkin' Donuts Franchisee. "We have a passion and loyalty for the brand and look forward to the opening of our Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in the years to come."
