Dunkin’ Donuts looking to open new location on Telegraph Road

Future Dunkin Donuts location

Dunkin’ Donuts could be coming to the vacant bank building next to Hayfield Secondary School.

Pending county approval, Dunkin’ Donuts has plans to open a new location next to Hayfield Secondary School on Telegraph Road.

The owner of the property has applied for a special exception to build a Dunkin’ Donuts with a drive-through at 7710 Telegraph Road, a vacant building that used to be a BB&T bank. While the property is already zoned for commercial use, a special exception is needed for fast-food restaurants with a drive-through.

The county’s planning and zoning staff has reviewed the application and recommended its approval. Next, the application will need to get approved by the planning commission at a July 19 public hearing, and then get voted on by the Board of Supervisors on July 25.

Dunkin’ Donuts plans to remodel the existing one-story brick building, which was built in 1973 and used as a bank until 2015. An entrance canopy will be added, as well as new lights and signage. 

The new restaurant will operate from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., and will have a 22-person seating capacity, according to the planning and zoning staff report
