    Wow, the mark up on Donuts and coffee is tremendous. Never understood why they didn’t keep the doors open until at least 9pm.

    Starbucks at Broad & High = Closed.
    Dunkin Donuts at Broad & High = Closed.

    If there is a silver lining to this, it’s that it should mean even more business for Cafe Brioso a block north.

    Capstone is in the same building as DD and we have been trying to do a cross promotion since we opened in November. Everytime we would call and speak to someone, they would say call back on such and such a date because changes were about to happen. Also, the property 2-6 E Broad has been on commercial listings for a while. Sucks to find out they are leaving. Vacancy/turnover is definitely a problem for street level retail on the NE corner.

    I realize they are part of a larger corporation, but it is still a franchise with a local small business owner and local employees. I think the more retail in the area the better, and have seen quite the revolving door.

    Some turnover is natural. But what’s worth pointing out is that the two chains (Soup Nazi & Dunkin Donuts) are the ones that failed to pay rent while the two local establishments (Burgers Dogs & Fries and Cafe Lola) are still chugging along.

    Soupman=Evicted, Dunkin Donuts=Evicted, and one space has been vacant since the project was completed. I’d say it might be time for Casto to realize that 40+ per square foot doesn’t work on that corner. You can’t make the numbers work when you throw in construction costs and lunch only business.

    So it sounds like what we have now then is a better opportunity for 2 restaurant businesses to step in, re-adapt those built-out spaces and run restaurants with dinner & weekend hours. Just need two liquor licenses, right? ;)

    Yeah. Kudos to those who are making it work.

    Where’s that poster who was bitching last week about all the SN business stiffing their landlords…?

    Dunkin announced in 2007 grand growth plans for Columbus. They have not hit their goals. There was supposed to be one built on Bethel Road, but that spot is now a Popeye’s Chicken.

    That’s true, Kevin Ames has that corner figured out. Maybe we’ll see Donuts, Coffee and Juice pop up make a killing.

    if those jerks would make chocolate crullers like a proper east coast D’n’D, there wouldn’t be a problem makin’ money.

    I wish that were true, but Brioso’s baked goods aren’t particularly good. There is a definite lack of cookies and donuts downtown, and I say this as someone who requires a sugar infusion every afternoon. Can’t wait for Pearl Market’s return.

    I have a vision of a Subway in each of the vacant stores.
