Dunkin’ franchisee opens newest Springfield restaurant

Posted online

Dunkin' restaurant franchisee Bapa Network LLC this week opened its newest store in Springfield.

The 2534 S. Campbell Ave. restaurant in Old Town Shopping Center got its start May 23, said Emma Corson, a public relations manager who spoke on behalf of Dunkin'.

The 900-square-foot Dunkin' is designed to take pressure off Bapa Network's 4020 S. Campbell Ave. restaurant, where traffic often is known to overflow on the side road near Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, according to past reporting.

"The intention for this location is to reduce the load and pressure from the existing location on Campbell Avenue," said franchisee Girish Patel of Bapa Network, in a January Springfield Business Journal article.

BP Builders LLC served as general contractor for the project designed by Wichita, Kansas-based Clarkitecture LLC. The completion date originally was estimated for April, according to past reporting.

The Dunkin' restaurant utilizes a new nationwide prototype for the chain. It's a drive-thru concept with two separate lanes that merge to the same pickup point.

"They can get more orders into the queue at once, and then they can be working on those in the kitchen. It expedites the whole process," said project architect Chris Clark, in a March 14 SBJ article.

Corson said the restaurant employs 15 people led by manager Gina Bowland.

Bapa Network also is the franchisee behind a Baskin-Robbins combo concept that’s currently under construction at 1614 S. Glenstone Ave.
