New Dunkin' Donuts being built on Wheeler Road

  • Follow Local Business

A Dunkin’ Donuts is being built at 3670 Wheeler Road, according to owner Peter Patel.

The restaurant is near Doctors Hospital, and Patel expects construction to be finished late this year.

Patel owns two Dunkin’ Donuts shops in the Augusta area and one in Atlanta.

“We have been looking for a new location for a while, and I think this Wheeler Road area has really demonstrated growth,” he said.

It will be a standard Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant without a Baskin-Robbins, covering about 1,800 square feet.

Patel said he expects to hire about 20 employees for the shop beginning in September.

Time to increase the cholesterol meds. With a new Micky D's and Dunkin' Donuts being built a short walk from my house, I give up.

This is not bad news.

I'm not big on dunkin doughnut pastries, but they are not bad. With that, I do in fact love their coffee.

So, I see no negative side-effects of this story.

Dunkin Donuts Wheeler RD
Unpublished

Today I went through the drive through with my daughter and received the worse service of my life. Now, I usually visit this Dunkin’ Donuts (alone) at 3670 Wheeler Rd due to the proximity of my job. However today (2/09/2013) I was with my ten year old daughter and she was going through the menu deciding on what she wanted and we heard over the intercom “What the he** they need to come on” so I advised the person taking the order that we would just like to speak with a Manager. To my surprise, when we got to the window it was the Manager/Owner/CEO Sherman Moore who made the statement. He admitted that yes he made that statement because we were increasing his handle time and that there is no one above him. As I am also in business with an MBA, I asked him if the customer came first or if we were just numbers and even let him know that I double checked to ensure that no one was waiting behind us. He says, “To him we are just numbers otherwise come inside”. Needless to say, I am in shock and very appalled. I will NEVER visit this location and again and would advise anyone with children not to go through the drive through to rule out having them hear this type of language then having to go back and explain to an innocent child deciding on breakfast that this person “may have just had a bad morning”.
