The typically bustling Boylston Street in Boston is filled with restaurants and shops, both national and local. Today, most of those businesses remain closed following the bombings that took place near the finish line shortly after hour four of the Boston Marathon Monday.

The biggest brand affected is Dunkin' Donuts, which is based out of nearby Canton, Mass. Dunkin' posted on its Facebook page Monday that there are two restaurants located in the area of the blasts, at 715 Boylston Street and 53 Huntington St., that remain closed as a result of the evacuation. The company has not received any reports of damage to its restaurants or injuries to its employees. Other Boston area units remain open.

Dunkin's fans have also used the brand's Facebook page to suggest free coffee and donuts for first responders, or donations toward victims from all Boston Krème donut sales. One fan responded: "Having worked nearly 10 years in Dunkin' Donuts, they're not going to advertise it, but I have no doubt they'll be taken care of."

Boston-based fast casual Boloco also closed a handful of stores Monday, including its Copley, Newbury, School Street, Berklee, Commons and Northeastern locations. The Copley restaurant remains closed today.

Boston-based Cheeseboy posted a photo of Boyston Street from its headquarters before the race. Afterwards, the company wrote: "As many of you know, we are a Boston based company with our Support Center and one of our restaurants on Boylston St. We are incredibly grateful that all of our team members are safe and accounted for. Our deepest sympathies go out to everyone who was affected by this tragedy."

Picco, located on nearby Tremont Street and specializing in pizzas and pastas, canceled delivery orders on Monday because of the events.

Crazy Dough's Pizza, located on Boylston Street, expressed condolences for the victims and linked to the city's live blog about the incident, located at http://live.boston.com/Event/Live_blog_Explosion_in_Copley_Square.

Many of these businesses were also affected by Winter Storm Nemo in February.
