Dunkin’ returning to Baton Rouge following $1.5 million purchase

BATON ROUGE — A Texas food franchisee purchased a tract of land near the intersection of West Lee and Burbank for $1.5 million with plans to bring Dunkin’ back to Baton Rouge.

Dunkin’, previously Dunkin’ Donuts, has not had a location in Baton Rouge since 2018.

Tasty Delites Southeast LLC of Plano, Texas, bought the site from Asterrone LLC, a group made up of the family of late auto dealer Price LeBlanc, according to a deal filed March 13 with the East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court.

Tasty Delites Southeast LLC is a subsidiary of Tasty Restaurant Group LLC, which operates over 400 restaurants under various brands that include Pizza Hut, Burger King, Dunkin’, Baskin-Robbins, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Taco Bell.

The intersection at West Lee and Burbank has been developed in recent years, and several national and regional fast-food chains have locations there.

Dunkin’ Donuts had locations on Bluebonnet and Florida Boulevards, as well as S. Sherwood Forest Boulevard, before the company closed them in a six-month span between 2017 and 2018.
