Dunkin' Donuts, 1202 Main Street: Never Opened   9 comments

Posted at 1:52 am in restaurants

This Dunkin' Donuts storefront, to go into the old Capitol Cafe site, was announced with more than a bit of fanfare in The State on 24 June 2008.

Since that's about a year and a half ago, and since there has been no apparent work done at the site since the sign went up, I think it's fair to conclude that this is not going to happen..

UPDATE 26 Jan 2011 -- Well, all the Dunkin' branding is gone, and work has progressed. It's got some fancy looking hanging lights in there, but whenever I tried to get a closer look at what was going on inside, I got dripped all over from some sort of overhead leak:

  1. There has to be a great story behind this and I hope someone has more info on it. The State article also mentions a store in Lexington that was supposed to open and never did. From the site described, its actually a new Krispy Kreme .

    A month after The State article, the group, Kainos Partners LLC,was named Dunkin’ Donuts Developer of the Year Their corporate website is now defunct too (www.kainospartners.com) Odd how they get all this press and awards and then vanish.

  3. There is also a never opened Dunkin' Donuts at the corner of Clemson Rd and I-20. They built the building but never even got the sign up. It has been vacant for the past year or so.

  7. The State is really on the ball. There is a post today listed as "Breaking News" with this same thing.

    I'm sure they had to wait for documents to be filed or word from the developer, but still Ted posted this more than a month ago.

  8. This place has a new sign on it, and apparently some new activity inside. It looks to be another restaurant, and the name is "Fever."

  9. I think that's the place that made such a stink about the taco cart, badger.
