New Dunkin’ Donuts could be headed to St. Charles
ST. CHARLES – A new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant appears headed for Route 38 in St. Charles, as the St. Charles Planning and Development Committee will hear plans to convert the building that houses Goody’s Restaurant into a two-unit building.
The meeting is set for 7 p.m. Jan. 13 in the council chambers of City Hall, 2 E. Main St., St. Charles.
The Goody’s building is at 2057 Lincoln Highway, which is Route 38. City planner Matt O’Rourke said the proposal calls for a minor change. Plans will call for a drive-through for the Dunkin’ Donuts. The two businesses both would be housed in the existing building.
O’Rourke said the changes would be “mostly cosmetic.”
“They are not really changing anything physically about the site – some new signage, those sorts of things,” he said.
It would be St. Charles’ second Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant. Another location exists at 1711 W. Main St. in St. Charles. Other Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants are in South Elgin and Batavia, and a new shop is planned for Route 47 in Elburn. The restaurants sell doughnuts, coffee, sandwiches and bagels, among other items.
