The opening of the new Dunkin’ location in Wrightstown Township is facing holds ups.

Despite the building’s near completion and a sign out front seeking employees, no date for opening has been announced or posted as of Monday.

At a recent meeting of the Wrightstown Township Board of Supervisors, Township Engineer Cindy VanHise highlighted landscaping issues as an obstacle holding back the chain coffee shop’s opening.

According to VanHise, complications arose during the installation of a sewer line to a septic field at the site. The construction disrupted the approved plan for buffer landscaping.

The township is working with Dunkin’s owners and landscape architect to resolve the concerns, VanHise said.

Construction of the Dunkin’ started in 2022 at the site near the Five Points intersection where Durham Road (Route 413) meets Second Street Pike (Route 232) and Park Avenue. The location is across from the Anchor Shopping Center and beside ACI Adjustment Group, which sits in the building that once housed a Penn Community Bank branch.

The project initially received approval from the Wrightstown Township Board of Supervisors in 2021, but progressed slowly.

At the time of its approval, some community members expressed worries about the potential for the Dunkin’ to exacerbate existing flooding problems and increase traffic congestion.
