Project description: Dunkin’ will soon have a second Springfield location with the opening of a restaurant in Old Town Shopping Center. The idea is to reduce some of the pressure on the other Springfield Dunkin’, which is farther south at 4020 S. Campbell Ave., according to franchisee Girish Patel of Bapa Network LLC, who said the restaurant will employ 30 people. Dunkin’ is as known for its coffee as it is for its doughnuts, and the new location will be a drive-thru concept with two separate lanes that merge to the same pickup point, according to project architect Chris Clark. It’s a new nationwide prototype for Dunkin’, Clark said, adding the concept was made popular by McDonald’s. “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,” Clark said. There will also be a walk-up window for customers. Patel also offered an update on another Bapa project: After a six-month delay in the city permitting process, work has begun on a combined Dunkin’ and Baskin Robbins at 1614 S. Glenstone Ave., the site of the former Krave Seafood & Oyster Bar.
