Harrow Times: The official opening of the UK's first Dunkin' Donuts in 20 years The official opening of the UK's first Dunkin' Donuts in 20 years

Hundreds of people flocked to the official opening of first Dunkin’ Donuts coffee shop in the UK today.

The American chain returned to the capital after a 20-year absence, with its new shop in St Ann's Road the first of 50 planned across north and east London.

Although the official opening took place today, the restaurant opened its doors on Saturday, when it made £574 for charity, with the shop and the company each donating £1 to St Luke's Hospice in Kenton for every doughnut sold.

The snack food restaurant held a party today with activities for customers and live entertainment.

Jim Johnson, managing director for the UK Dunkin’ brand, said: “It’s nice that as a local company, we can support local charities too.

“St Luke's does a great job in trying to better people’s lives.

“The grand opening was fantastic. It was full of fun – that’s what we’re all about.”

if you want to find out about any restaurant in Harrow click on the Food Standards Agency website. www.food.gov.uk

Then you can type in the name of the restaurant and the postcode and the details about the restaurant will be seen. The Food Standards Agency also visit restaurants and give a hygiene rating number. The certificate can be displayed on the premises to show which hygiene rating they have achieved. Good restaurants will obviously want to display the certificate and the failing restaurants will not display the certificate to show a low rating.

If they do not dispaluy a certiifcate ask them why they do not have one. The top raring is 5 and the lowest is 0. A score of nought means improvements should be made.

Perhaps the Harrow Times could find out if Harrow restaurants are members of this hygiene rating scheme. If Harrow are not signed up to this scheme perhaps one of the councillors could help out by orgainsing a campaign to bring this scheme to Harrow.as I am sure residents would welcome the introduction of this svheme to Harrow.
