Dunkin' Donuts opens in Papillion

Dunkin' Donuts is now open in Nebraska.

The shop opened at 5 a.m. today at 72nd and Cornhusker in Papillion. A line of cars formed as customers navigated their way down an access road with the help of Dunkin' signs.

It's open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

A grand opening event is planned for Friday, May 31. The event will raise money for Mustaches for Kids Omaha.

No longer just a doughtnut-and-coffee shop, the store sells frozen and iced drinks, bagels, muffins and breakfast sandwiches, wraps, and “bakery sandwiches” like ham, turkey and chicken salad. The menu also has more healthful options like turkey sausage breakfast items, oatmeal, and egg-white flatbread sandwiches.

The shop is owned by Bryce Bares, a 1995 graduate of Bellevue East High School, who purchased territorial rights that include the portion of Omaha south of Interstate 80 and all of Sarpy County except Gretna.

Bares bought the Dunkin' Donuts franchise rights through his company, QSR Services. He has said he plans to open nine stores in his territory, which also includes Lincoln and Kearney, by 2017. One of those is planned for 107th and Q Streets.

Founded in 1950, Canton, Mass.-based Dunkin' Donuts has more than 10,000 restaurants in 32 countries worldwide. In 2010, Dunkin' Donuts' global system-wide sales were $6 billion.
