The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting that a new 28,000 square foot, $3 million bakery for Dunkin’ Donuts will be built in Catoosa County.
Construction of the 28,000-square-foot bakery is expected to start soon on a tract at Rollins Business Center with plans to open around November, said Dave Baumgartner, managing partner and president of area franchisee Bluemont Group.
He said the bakery is slated to cost nearly $3 million and employ about 40 people. Doughnuts will be made at night and delivered by 4 a.m. each day to every store, Baumgartner said.
Bluemont Group owns 24 franchise stores in middle and eastern Tennessee and north Georgia as well as other markets. Their plans are to expand the number of stores to 60, and their new bakery will be built to handle that many stores.
Tasty, new #jobs!
