Dunkin' Donuts made national news recently by announcing they were taking the 'donuts' out of their official name and just doing with 'Dunkin." In Portage, they've curtailed things a bit more by closing their South Westnedge Ave location.

Dunkin' had been located at 7501 South Westnedge in a shared location with Jimmy John's and sandwiched between Wraps and Signs and Main Street Pub.

Today you'll find the windows papered over and the signage removed from the building. A check of locations on the Dunkin website shows no sign of a location in Portage any longer.

Other Kalamazoo locations appear to remain open on Westnedge Ave in Kalamazoo and 9th Street in Texas Township near Oshtemo.

Those who need a donut fix in Portage will find Tim Hortons and Peace Love and Little Donuts both located several blocks north of the former Dunkin.

Is There Hope for a Dunkin' Return?

While there are no signs of life on the front of the building, the drive-thru lane on the back of the building indicates the restaurant is only closed for remodeling.
