The week after the Boston Licensing Board approved a new Dunkin' Donuts on D Street, it's faced with a request for another Dunkin' Donuts in South Boston, this time at 77 L St., near East Broadway.
"Is there a need for a donut shop in that area?" board Chairwoman Christine Pulgini bluntly asked franchisee John Gillespie at a hearing today.
Gillespie said Dunkin' Donuts is not serving that side of South Boston "at all."
Gillespie wants to serve up coffee, donuts and other food substances between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m.
