An applicant has filed to open a new Dunkin Donuts in the Washington Town Center strip mall, replacing one which previously closed.
Keith Rasquinha, who originally ran the Dunkin Donuts there, has proposed to open a new Dunkin Donuts in the 1,332-square-foot space between BK Tae Kwon Do and Wing Lee Kitchen in the mall, near its former location between Subway and Dairy Queen.
"He is excited about returning to the Washington Town Center and we are thrilled to have him come back," John Azarian, the mall's leasing agent, told Patch.
The plan calls for a new, multi-colored sign similar to those found at other Dunkin Donuts locations around the area, which is now allowed thanks to a change in the township's sign ordinance approved by the council last year. The old Dunkin Donuts had a blue sign in the same font as most of the other businesses in the mall.
The plan will need approval from the township before they can open. The Planning Board is expected to hear the application at their next meeting February 27.
Azarian said he is also working with several other interested parties about "various uses" in the Town Center, but could not yet speak about any of them.
Planning Board Chairman Gus Calamari said at their previous meeting that Original Pizza was also planning to return to the Town Center. The owners of Original Pizza could not immediately be reached for comment.
