Dunkin’ will hold an event next week to celebrate a new, 1,915-square-foot Middletown location.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration is slated for 10 a.m. Jan. 28 at 1300 S. Breiel Blvd. and will include entertainment, food and beverage samples.

The public is invited to attend.

The new restaurant, which replaces a Marco’s Pizza restaurant, sports the company’s “Next Generation” design, including a brighter, more contemporary interior and doughnut cases placed up front for customers to see like a jewelry counter.

It also features a new tap system that will be able to dispense several types of coffee, such as Nitro Coffee, Cold Brew, Iced Coffee and Iced Tea, as well as limited time flavors.

The new Dunkin’ also offers free Wi-Fi, a digital menu board and mobile ordering drive-through.

Dunkin’ franchisee Gilligan Company operates 33 Dunkin’ restaurants in Greater Cincinnati and Dayton markets. It was founded in 1993 in Columbus and employs more than 900 people in Ohio, operating more than 75 convenience stores and quick-service restaurants as well as transporting more than 200 million gallons of fuel annually to its customers, according to its website.

At the Jan. 28 event, Gilligan Company officials will present a donation to charity Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering bunk beds to children and families in need.

Million’s Crab Boiled Seafood

An O'Charley's restaurant that closed last year at 7866 Tylersville Square Drive in West Chester Twp. will be replaced by Millions Crab Boiled Seafood in mid-February, according to Commi Tong, the chain's marketing director.

The company, which is looking to hire servers, line cooks and dish washers, is the brainchild of two Cajun seafood chains: Juicy Seafood & Naked Crab, Tong said.

Million's Crab's menu includes cajun seafood such as Snow Crab legs, King Crab legs, clams, oysters, mussels, shrimp and more. It specializes in boiling fresh seafood in Cajun seasoning and topping it with a choice of sauces including garlic butter, cajun, lemon pepper, Million's Sauce or Szechuan.

It also offers an array of American cuisines dishes like burgers, wings and pasta, plus soups, salads, appetizers, sandwiches, lamb, beef, lobster, salmon and various other dishes, plus beers and cider.

Million’s Crab has a location in Pennsylvania. In addition to the new location in Butler County’s West Chester Twp., is planning to open restaurants at 3324 Benchwood Road in Dayton, 2206 N. Bechtle Ave. in Springfield and 11700 Princeton Pike in Springdale at the Tri-County Mall, as well as locations in Toledo and Middletown, Kentucky.
