Another Dunkin’ coming to Joliet

One more Dunkin’ coffee and doughnut shop is in the works in Joliet, the latest one planned as part of a gas station going onto an East Side stretch of Route 6.

Dunkin’, formerly known as Dunkin’ Donuts, will be part of the Gas N Was station being developed at Route 6 and Gougar Road.

The Gas N Wash at the far East Side location of the city follows a Gas N Wash with a Dunkin’ that opened earlier this year on the far West Side of Joliet at Theodore Street and Drauden Road. Both stations are on major arterial roads but at locations where there is little commercial development.

Meanwhile, a new Dunkin’ under construction is near completion in the middle of the city at Six Corners. That Dunkin’ is part of a two-unit commercial building on a Raynor Avenue corner of Six Corners.

The Joliet City Council on Monday approved drive-thru permits for the Dunkin and car wash at the Gas N Wash on Route 6.
