Dunkin' Donuts, which recently opened a new store in Fairview Heights after a several-year absence from the area, plans to add at several more shops in the metro-east.
According to a report in the St. Louis Business Journal, Dean Kreher and Ted Pierce plan to open three stores. They are currently looking at potential sites for the new doughnut shops in Belleville in St. Clair County and in Alton, Collinsville, Edwardsville and Granite City in Madison County. One of the stores is expected to open by September 2013. The two others are projected to open by 2015.
Kreher owns two Subway restaurants as well as WinDoor Windows in Swansea.
Dunkin' Donuts currently has eight locations across the St. Louis metropolitan area.
