Rome last had a Dunkin’ Donuts at 905 Shorter Ave. in the early 1980s across from West Rome Baptist Church.
The new site sits at 12 Shorter Ave. between a convenience store and Mathis Builders Hardware. The convenience store remains.
Owners said earlier this week they had hoped to open on Friday but opted instead for today.
A new Dunkin’ Donuts also opened earlier this week in Cartersville, and police had to be called to direct traffic.
