Birmingham’s FINALLY going to run on Dunkin – again

UPDATE: 2.1.2010 – It’s finally opened – in Pelham, AL.

The market’s been open since early 2008 and this morning they finally took a step towards making it come true.

The Canton, MA-based company signed a multi-unit store development agreement with Birmingham-based RFS, LLC earlier today. The agreement calls for the development of 21 restaurants in the Birmingham market. RFS plans to open its first location in the next 12 months, fulfilling its agreement within the next 5 to 6 years. It will be the first time in years that the metro area has had a Dunkin’ Donuts location.

This isn’t to say you can’t get  Dunkin’ Donuts in the state now – you’d just have to drive to Dothan (they got their first location last month).

Because we don’t want you to be hungry

Krispy Kreme glazedWhy else would we make sure that you know about free ice cream day and free pancake day? Today we’re making sure you know about free doughnut day. The first Friday in June is always National Doughnut Day. Really, I’m not making this up. Head to your nearest Krispy Kreme (here are the metro area locations) and pick up a chocolate glazed or raspberry-filled treat. It’s your choice. And because those doughnuts are made hot and fresh all day long, don’t worry that you missed out on breakfast. You can stop by for an afternoon snack or make it your lunch. We’re not judging, just enjoying.
