Dunkin’ Donuts coming to Ashtabula Township

ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP — Ashtabula residents soon will find out if America runs on Dunkin’  — a Dunkin’ Donuts is opening soon at 2230 E. Prospect Road.

The store will be built just east of Outback Auto Wash, between Homewood Avenue and Fargo Drive, on the south side of the road.

Currently, there is one Dunkin’ Donuts in Ashtabula County, in Geneva at the intersection of Route 84 and South Broadway (Route 534).

Under the terms of the county/city/township sewer district agreement, a joint economic development district (JEDD) would have to be created to accommodate the new development.

A public hearing on the JEDD is set for 5:30 p.m. Sept. 16 in Ashtabula City council chambers in the Municipal Building, 4717 Main Ave., Ashtabula.

The county owns the sewer lines in the township and city owns the wastewater treatment plant. Under the sewer district agreement, employee wages and the profits from businesses in the JEDD would be subject to the city’s 1.8 percent income tax. The revenue would be shared between the city and township after deductions are made for JEDD administration and capital improvements to the treatment plant.

Ashtabula City Manager Jim Timonere said he’s excited about the new business.

Founded in 1950, Dunkin’ Donuts serves coffee, donuts, bagels and muffins all day. The company has more than 10,500 restaurants in 31 countries worldwide, according to its web site. The company is based in Canton, Mass.
