The Kalamazoo-based donut shop is expanding to Plainwell in 2018.

UPDATE: Sweewater's tells us they plan to open their Plainwell store on February 15.

It all started with a donut and a dream in Kalamazoo. In 1983, the Garner family opened Sweetwater's Donut Mill on Stadium Drive with the idea of providing "big, gooey donuts, good coffee and a relaxed atmosphere which would appeal to a broad range of people including students, retirees, professionals, etc."

They delivered on the promise and then expanded to Battle Creek in 1986 and opened a second location in Kalamazoo 3 years later. Plainwell will see the newest branch of Sweetwater's opening in 2018; construction is underway right now at M-89 and US-131. Look for Sweetwater's location #4 to be open in January 2018- looks like they are hiring now.
