Dunkin’ Do-Not

You know you’re in Indiana when:

People lined up at 5 a.m. Monday morning for the opening of the Westfield Dunkin’ Donuts store on 146th Street. Moms scooted in to buy a dozen to-go. Two teenage girls had been in the parking lot since 4 a.m.

“We just sat in the car and read Cosmo (the magazine),” said Courtney Carlile, 18, Carmel, over a half-dozen iced donuts she was sharing with friend Brittany Hunt, 16, Westfield. “I love donuts a lot.”

Dunkin’ Donuts is poised to open more than two dozen stores in the Indy metro area over the next year or so. That’s a lot of donuts. That sound you hear is the collective sound of Indy’s wasteline expanding further. Maybe we’re shooting to be America’s fattest city — we’re already in the top ten.
