Munchkin on this, Palm Beach County: The recently closed Dunkin’ Donuts in Lake Park will reopen Monday.
That marks a quick turnaround for the Federal Highway donut shop, which closed Aug. 2 for renovations.
Franchisee Dan Bowers felt the 53-year-old eatery — which was the last full-service Dunkin’ restaurant in the world — was overdue for a makeover.
The grill, the short-order cooks and the veteran waitresses are gone, replaced with the full complement of equipment for making 2015’s specialty sandwiches and small army of hot, cold and slushy beverages (once upon a time, kids, beverages at donut shops were pretty much limited to hot coffee, cold OJ and tiny cartons of milk).
Starting Monday and continuing through Friday, the first 20 customers each morning will receive a free ceramic mug — the kind that was a staple at the original restaurant.
The restaurant also will offer this deal next week: a small hot coffee and donut for 99 cents.
Dunkin’ Donuts is at 301 Federal Highway in Lake Park and can be reached at 561-848-5031.
