Sweet and spiffy on Soncy
by Karen Welch — Senior Content Producer
Two franchise businesses will nestle together on the northeast corner of Soncy Road and Southwest 45th Avenue in Southwest Amarillo.
Contractor ADC Inc. is building retail sites for both a Dunkin Donuts location and a Tide Dry Cleaners location, plus a third retail shell structure on the corner lot.
City of Amarillo building permit data lists the construction cost of the 2,730-square-foot Tide Dry Cleaners at $500,000. The construction price tag for each of the other two buildings is about $100,000 less, according to the city.
Both stores, though, will run slightly larger than the dry cleaning facility, permit information shows.
A Lubbock-based limited liability company called Five S Building owns the land, having purchased it from Amarillo National Bank in May 2015, the Potter-Randall Appraisal District database shows.
PRAD lists the appraised value of the undeveloped property at more than $623,000.
Tide Dry Cleaners franchises are offered by Agile Pursuits Franchising Inc., a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble, according to www.entrepreneur.com.
Locations offer laundry drop-off and pick-up service 24 hours a day, using drop boxes and lockers, the website said. Franchises also offer drive-through and tailoring services.
Dunkin Donuts recently opened a stand-alone store on South Western Street and one has operated at a Petro Travel Center on East Interstate 40 for several years.
