It looks like a new Dunkin' Donuts in Cedar Rapids is close to opening. According to an article in the Cedar Rapids Gazette, "Operators say no firm opening date has been set, but it could be within a few weeks or even days, depending on final detail work."

The new location will be at 1640 Edgewood Road in Cedar Rapids. This is good news for me, it's not too far away from my house. I've always been a huge fan of Dunkin', but not just for the donuts. If you ask me, they make some pretty great coffee, too.

I'm just worried the location is TOO close to my domicile. I mean, does this mean I need to start exercising more? I have an idea - maybe I'll jog to the location to get my donuts! That way, I'll break even on the transaction. A donut, a run, it all works out...Right?

Operators also told the Gazette, "The store will employ between 20 and 30 people and will be similar in layout and floor plan of their Marion location. For more information, check out www.dunkindonuts.com
