Notes on the restaurant: Dunkin is planning a central bakery; Chick-fil-A takes a step in Lakewood | Jax Daily Record | Jacksonville Daily Record
Let’s call it “Donut Central”.
The city is currently considering an application for renovation work in Central Park East on 4073 Philips Highway for a central kitchen, bakery and commissioner from Dunkin.
There donuts are made for the area distribution.
A Dunkin ‘Brands spokesman said October 28th, a local Dunkin’ franchisee is reviewing plans to open a central kitchen in the Jacksonville area.
The location would add to the current 66 Dunkin locations in the greater Jacksonville area.
The spokesman, who did not want to be identified, said the project could be described as a central bakery or central production center.
“We don’t currently have a list of the locations where products are sourced from this kitchen / bakery / manufacturing center,” she said.
The $ 1.5 million project to renovate 15,305 square feet for the project and 364 square feet of uncompleted space does not have a contractor listed.
Plans show production and preparation lines with freezer and storage rooms.
Parker Walter Group Inc. from Sarasota is the architect.
The kitchen is next to the Village Bread Cafe.
