MONROE, CT — A developer is planning to build a standalone Dunkin’ Donuts with a drive-thru at 395 Monroe Turnpike, directly across the street from McDonald’s. Michael Cavallo, of Dunkin’ Donuts Development, said it will be a relocation of the store at the corner of Route 111 and Elm Street, with the new store being built on an empty lot in the Village Square shopping center, according to the application on file at Monroe Town Hall. “Our new standalone location will have easy access into the plaza with the traffic lights and, more importantly, will have a new drive through with an extra lane to better serve our mobile orders in a quicker manner with no need to leave your car,” Cavallo said. “Our new location will have better visibility and all the new technology that our brand has to offer.” The anticipated hours of operation are from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The proposal needs a site plan approval from the Planning and Zoning Commission and an approval for a new septic system from the Monroe Health Department.
