Newburgh residents will soon have a new option for their morning cup of coffee and donuts.
According to Evansville 411 News on Facebook, the new location will be open for business from Monday, October 11.
Plans for the new location were announced almost a year ago in December 2020. As Evansville 411 News notes in its article, the new store will be located at 3955 Orchard Lane between the relatively new Tommy’s Express Car Wash and McDonald’s. in the Apple Center parking lot. along Highway 66. The Apple Center is also home to Ruler Foods, Traderbakers, and Ryan’s Do It Right Hardware and Paint.
As i mentioned back in december when the announcement was made that Dunkin ‘was coming to Newburgh, I will be curious to see how well that goes given that Donut Bank is about a third mile east at the intersection of highways 66 and 261 While we love the new restaurants in the Tri-State, we are creatures of habit too, and Donut Bank has been a staple in Newburgh at this location for many, many years. I imagine the lines inside and at the drive-thru will be stable for a few months while everyone tries. We’ll see if it stays that way beyond that.
Based on responses to the Evansville 411 News post, the majority of people seemed excited about the new location. However, some are encouraging everyone to buy local and support Donut Bank instead, while others have expressed concern about the potential traffic problems this could cause on Highway 66 if the drive-thru lane runs from the parking lot to the road.
