A national doughnut and coffee chain has chosen a site near Smith Crossroads for its first shop in Caldwell County.

 

Dunkin’ Donuts will build its shop on the northwest corner of Wilkesboro Boulevard and Lower Creek Drive near the Aldi grocery store. It is the second of four stores coming to the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton area, franchise operator Roy Clark said. All four operations are owned by HARA Foodservice Group LLC.

 

According to Clark, construction of the Lenoir site is expected to start before the end of the year and will follow the completion of the first shop in Hickory by G.E.M. Constructors Inc. Clark added that the store should be open in mid to late 2018.

 

“We’re looking forward to joining the community and serving the area,” Clark said.

 

He added that the site was chosen because of its proximity to Smith Crossroads, and the open lot was an easy pick.

 

“It’s a growing area and a good location next to an already established Aldi,” Clark said.

 

The store will be full-service Dunkin’ Donuts with a drive-through and 20 to 30 employees, who will be hired about a month before opening, he said.

 

HARA Foodservice Group had announced its development plans in April. Along with the Hickory and Lenoir stores, additional locations will be in Marion and Morganton.
