Little word about PV Dunkin Donuts

In August, the final development plan for a Dunkin Donuts was unanimously approved by the Prescott Valley Town Council. It was initially thought that the fast-food/coffee chain might be open by Christmas, but time has told otherwise.

So far, the location, slotted for the corner of Glassford Hill Road and Centre Court, has yet to see any construction. While the project is clearly delayed, Prescott Valley’s Community Development Director said it is still in the works.

“We heard a couple weeks ago that they plan now to request a minor amendment to their approved final development plan through an administrative process,” Richard Parker said.

Originally, Dunkin Donuts was going to share a building with another business. The change being requested is that there will instead be two separate buildings, he said.

The town has not yet received that final development plan amendment, but Parker anticipates it will be submitted by early January and that approval of the change will take only about 10 business days. After that, it’s up to the Dunkin Donuts franchisee, Paul Faust, and his site developer as to when construction will begin.

Multiple attempts have been made by the Courier over the past month to reach Faust for comment, with no success.
