Dunkin’ Donuts Plan for Cross River Moves Forward

LEWISBORO, N.Y. – The commercial says that “America runs on Dunkin’.” Lewisboro may soon be joining in.

Plans to install a Dunkin’ Donuts franchise at the Orchard Square shopping center in Cross River took another step toward fruition this week when the planning board held a public hearing on the matter and no one voiced any objections.

The Tuckahoe-based TBG Food Acquisition Corp., led by Mike Dobeck, filed a site-plan application with the planning board last month. But at this week’s planning board meeting, Dobeck and TBG’s attorney Michael Sirignano noted that they had made some slight changes to the plans, which will have to be reviewed by Jan Johansson, the town’s planning consultant. Johansson said he didn’t see any obvious problems with the altered plan, but will review it and give the board his recommendations in time for its next meeting, at which time it could approve the application.

Part of the new plan is the location of the store. It will now move into the space recently vacated by Villarina’s Deli. The site plan still calls for 10 seats and four tables, but the square footage has increased from 1,200 feet to 1,400 feet.

“We also may be taking a space in the back behind DeCicco’s near where the new town offices will be,” Dobeck told the board. “It will simply be for storage – dry goods only.”

Johansson said he would need some time to review the company’s plan for the new space behind DeCicco’s, but was hopeful the board would be able to pass a resolution at its April 24 meeting.

Sirignano noted that the Architecture and Community Appearance Review Council (ACARC) approved the proposed Dunkin’ Donuts sign at its last meeting.

If approved, Dunkin’ Donuts will become the second fast-food franchise to join Orchard Square. A Subway restaurant is expected to open there next month.
