Doughnut lovers, rejoice.

A new doughnut shop has hit the Iowa City area, and it’s looking to become just one of many.

The first eastern Iowa Dunkin’ Donuts location opened in Coralville, 604 Second St., on Wednesday, setting the precursor for 11 additional stores over the next several years.

The restaurant is owned by the Eastern Iowa Food Service LLC, a subsidiary of Reif Oil Co., based in Burlington. The doughnut shop took the location formerly occupied by a Sonic Drive-In.

It is roughly three miles from the University of Iowa’s main campus.

In a Wednesday news release, Andrea Farley, Eastern Iowa Food Service managing partner, said the company plans to open three new stores this year throughout eastern Iowa, with 12 new restaurants coming over the next six years.

Locations in Cedar Rapids and Dubuque are expected to open soon.

All 12 locations are set to open by 2018.

A grand opening benefiting the UI Children’s Hospital is slated for July 12.
