The American chain is set to open up in the former Carphone Warehouse unit at the Capitol Centre in Walton-le-Dale after South Ribble Borough Council agreed to change rules on the use of the building. The former shop has sat empty since 2020 but can now be brought back to use.
The new facility will offer donuts, sandwiches and other baked as well as hot and cold drinks with around 50 seats and a takeaway option. According to the firm, the new store will create 15 jobs.

Items on the menu include Lotus biscuit and Oreo inspired donuts as well as rocky road, ‘hazelnut pie’ and maple chocolate varieties.
