RICHMOND, Va. ( – Let the sugar rush resume.

Shuttered since September as a result of a legal battle, four local Dunkin’ Donuts shops are reopening under new management.

The franchise rights to Dunkin’ stores at 9225 Atlee Road in Mechanicsville, 4417 W. Hundred Road in Chester and 11556 Busy St. just off Midlothian Turnpike, plus a combination Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin-Robbins store at 11 S. Nansemond St. in Carytown were purchased in November by Charlottesville resident Andy Rod.

The Mechanicsville store reopened Saturday, Rod said. The Chester store is set to open today, Busy Street is expected to open Dec. 7, and the Carytown location should re-launch next week.
