Plans move forward for Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin Robbins in Clarkesville

The Clarkesville Planning and Zoning Commission is moving forward with new designs for the building that will become Clarkesville’s very own Dunkin’ Donuts— and Baskin Robbins.

Clarkesville Planning and Zoning Director Caleb Gaines tells Now Habersham that the new restaurant will also include a Baskin Robbins. The Baskin Robbins sets the Clarkesville Dunkin’s plans apart from Cornelia’s coming Dunkin’ Donuts establishment, which, according to City of Cornelia Community Development Director Jessie Owensby, does not have a Baskin Robbins specified in their plans.

The planning commission met Tuesday night to discuss the facade of the establishment, which will take over the building that is currently Yakimono Express in Clarkesville. After some discussion, the commission decided that the building should be redesigned to fit Clarkesville’s historic look on Washington Street.

After the new design is approved, steps to make the new business official can take place, followed by construction of the Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin Robbins.

“At this point, the project is still going forward and we should be getting another proposed design from them shortly,” Gaines says.
