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.
