Dunkin’ is scheduled to open a coffee and doughnut shop on NM 528 in coming weeks. Rio Rancho had one on Southern Boulevard in the 1990s, but it closed. Amy Byres photo.

The new Dunkin’ near NM 528 and Barbara Loop is set to open in a matter of weeks.
The store across from Dutch Bros will bring about 30 jobs to the area.
Opening day is estimated to be at the end of April or the first week of May, said Dunkin’ spokeswoman Heather Miles Austin.
“We are thrilled to again serve our signature coffee and doughnut offerings, as well as a variety of other food and beverage items to Rio Rancho and the surrounding community this upcoming summer,” said Dunkin’ franchisee Amin Habib. “Rio Rancho is a wonderful, growing community, and our team is proud to be part of that economic growth and provide additional jobs for local community members as we host our loyal Dunkin’ customers in Rio Rancho.”
