Dunkin’ Donuts, Popeyes coming to Monroe

A Dunkin’ Donuts and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen are under construction along Ohio 63 just west of the Shell Gas Station at 1280 Hamilton-Lebanon Road.

Dunkin’ Donuts will be a new business for the city. Popeyes will replace a smaller version of the restaurant within the gas station itself.

Both businesses are slated to open next year, with Dunkin’ Donuts opening by the spring and being followed by Popeyes.

“It’s a welcome business amenity to the city, and we’re glad to see that they’re expanding,” said Kevin Chesar, Monroe’s director of development. “We’re always trying to enhance the view of the … gateway into the city and … both Popeyes and Dunkin’ Donuts have worked with us to try to make sure and meet our architectural and design criteria and our landscaping expectations.”
