The new Dunkin' Donuts on Signal Mountain Road in Chattanooga will open Thursday.
The doughnut shop at 627 Signal Mountain Road is franchisee Blumont Group's fourth in the Chattanooga area. The company also plans to add two additional Dunkin' Donuts in Ooltewah and Cleveland.
At just under 2,000 square feet, the restaurant has room for 35 people to sit and eat, including an outdoor patio. After exiting the Chattanooga market in the 1990s, Dunkin' Donuts came roaring back into the Scenic City in 2009 and has been expanding since.

Unum Group has given the Chattanooga History Center another $350,000, bringing the company's support for the museum's fundraising drive to $500,000.

Jackson.
