There is no plan for locating a Dunkin’ Donuts in the old S&W Cafeteria building on Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville, according to a spokesman for the owners of the building, as well as a spokesman for the company who owns the local Dunkin’ franchise.
Despite a report on the Mountain Xpress website, which quoted construction workers, there are no current plans to locate a Dunkin’ Donuts in the building, said Brett Krueger, a spokesman for the group of Florida investors who bought the building in 2011. Scott Shealy, a spokesman for the Asheville company that owns the Dunkin’ Donuts franchise (a company which my mother works for) also confirmed that, while a local real estate agent may show a Dunkin’ representative the location, there are no plans for a donut shop at that location.
There’s a lot of interest in the now empty S&W location, a gem of a building a great location downtown. The site was a rumored Starbucks location, as well. Despite all the talk, there’s nothing firm yet. We’ll let you know when there is.
