DRACUT — Heav’nly Donuts, a bakery and coffee chain founded in 1975 by George and Elaine Saragas, opens its 14th location at 592 Merrimack Ave. (Route 110) on Monday morning.

The Saragases opened the first Heav’nly Donuts 40 years ago in neighboring Methuen. In more recent times, son Jimmy Saragas has expanded the business with additional locations across Massachusetts and into New Hampshire.

The chain offers high quality baked goods, including doughnuts, doughnut holes, bagels, croissants, muffins, pastries and sandwiches, and fresh coffee.

Most of the chains stores are in Essex County, although one is at 579 Main St. in Wilmington. Four are in New Hampshire, including two in Salem and one in Windham.

The Dracut store is at the corner of Merrimack and Stuart avenues.
