Since When Did the Portage Dunkin Donuts Close?
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.
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.
