DP Dough is making its return to College Park, MD nearly three years after closing its doors in January 2020 at 8145 Baltimore Ave. The Columbus, Ohio-based chain will be returning to College Park, this time at Terrapin Row, according to signage that’s up at 4200 Hartwick Rd.-
In January 2020, a couple months the prior to the start of Covid restrictions, DP Dough posted “It’s not good bye. It’s see ya later. After serving calzones for 20 years in College Park, we will be closing our doors for the last time Thursday night. It’s been an amazing journey, but all good things must come to an end.”
The wording of the message left fans of the calzone spot that operated in College Park for two decades wondering when exactly that “later” would be. DP Dough offers a wide variety of calzones, wings, and other appetizers. We are told the plan is to open this year in the new location.
More about DP Dough, per its website: In the mid 1980’s, a dude and his mom came up with an idea that would change college life forever: calzones! Dan (the dude) and Penny (his mom) named their new restaurant D.P. Dough after their initials. The first D.P. Dough opened in 1987. Today, D.P. Dough delivers ooey, gooey, cheesy happiness on and around college campuses throughout the United States.
Don’t get us wrong. We love a good slice of pie too. We just don’t sell it. Why? Because calzones are way better. That’s why! D.P. Dough has been making calzone converts out of adventurous ‘Za lovers – both college students and anyone else who is young at heart – since before slap bracelets were cool.
D.P. Dough calzones are tasty anytime. But, we are best known for being THE PLACE to go or call when it is crazy late. Who else is gonna deliver you a custom made calzone after the bars close?
