Dunkin’ coffee, donut shop opens in Urbana

Urbana is now home to another popular coffee and donut chain.

Dunkin’ opened at 1020 Scioto St. last week at the location of the former Golden Star Buffet next to the Champaign County Library.

The store, complete with a drive-through and tap-style cold brew station, rests between East U.S. Highway 36 and East State Route 29.

The shop’s opening was announced on social media by the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce, which also hosted a ribbon-cutting for the business last week.

Richard Ebert, economic development director of the Champaign Economic Partnership, said the partnership is happy to welcome the coffee chain to the area.

“The new store has been busy, and the buzz around town has been positive. The owners are very excited to be in the community, and their customers have had good things to say about the food and customer service. We are delighted to have them here,” he said.

The shop is open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Saturday, according to the company’s website.
