Yummy Yummy Donuts in My Tummy - Stan's Donuts Coming to Former Jersey Mike's Space (26 E. Roosevelt)

Mmmmmmmm - donuts:

Well we heard this was going to be a 7-11....but a Stan's Donuts seems like a better option (via Eater Chicago):
Stan's is bringing its uber-popular doughnuts to two more storefronts soon. Fresh off of its opening at Clark and Diversey last month, owner and bread guru Rich Labriola is planning to open two more Stan's Donuts & Coffees: one in the former Jersey Mike's next to the Roosevelt Red Line stop at 28 E. Roosevelt, and another in a former Caribou Coffee in East Lakeview at 3300 N. Broadway. Look for the 20-seat South Loop location to open next month, while the second Lakeview spot, which holds around 40 seats, should open in the spring, Labriola says. Both will have similar menus to the three existing Stan's.

Well this is pretty rad and honestly it's a pretty big upgrade for this stretch of Roosevelt.  While obviously you'll be able to get donuts, coffee and other beverages, it appears that they also have gelato (which will be another nice thing for the neighborhood).

The big question is whether or not this business will thrive in the location.  Our guess is yes, but others may disagree since there tends to be a lot of loitering.  Any thoughts?
