MANHATTAN – Residents in the Village of Manhattan will now be able to drive up and get their morning coffee as the Village Board approved a new drive-thru Dunkin’ at Tuesday’s Village Board meeting.
The new franchise will occupy a vacant restaurant located at 535 West North Street. According to village documents, the current building will be modified to include a Dunkin’ sign on the front and additional signage on the side and front of the location.
A special use permit, along with a few other variances, were unanimously approved by the Village and by the Planning and Zoning Commission to advance the project. The Dunkin’ will have a drive-thru service and new landscaping will be added to beautify the new location.
“Manhattan was just named to the top ten fastest growing cities list in Illinois and the more we promote our Village, the more economic development and sales tax revenues we will receive. This will help us grow the community and keep taxes lower for our residents.” Mayor Mike Adrieansen said in a release Wednesday.
Dunkin’ is expect to open by the end of the year.
