NEW CASTLE (DE) BY DIGITAL STAFF: A next generation drive-thru Dunkin Donuts held it’s grand opening celebration today in New Castle.
In celebration of its new Next Gen drive-thru only restaurant, the Dunkin’ located at 194 N DuPont Highway welcomed guests with a grand opening celebration that got underway with the owners, Dunkin officials, and local dignitaries.
The restaurant surprised randomly selected guests* daily from 7 AM-10 AM with free coffee for a year giveaways** starting on Friday, April 2 until Thursday, April 8.
At 10:00 a.m. an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer got underway. Following the ceremony, a $1,000 donation check was presented to the Nemours Foundation on behalf of Dunkin’ franchisees Pradip Saha & Parthiban Jayaraman, alongside the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation.
The new Next Gen drive-thru only restaurant is the first of its kind in the Greater Philadelphia area and offers a look at Dunkin’s Next Gen store of the future experience.
Exciting elements of the new restaurant experience include:
The openness, colors, and energy efficient materials used in the design help to create an approachable, positive, and energetic environment.
Faster Than Ever Drive-Thru Experience:
In addition to a traditional drive-thru lane, an exclusive On-the-Go drive-thru lane lets DD Perks® members who order ahead via Dunkin’s Mobile App bypass the ordering lane and head straight into the line for the pickup window. Dunkin’ is the first national restaurant brand to offer this type of drive-thru innovation and convenience.
Crew members will use top-quality flavor-maximizing espresso machines to make hand-crafted drinks to order.
Dunkin’ on Demand:
Dunkin’ has also introduced an area dedicated to mobile pickups at the walk-up window so that DD Perks® members who order ahead via Dunkin’s Mobile App can receive their mobile orders faster than ever before.
Increased Energy Efficiency:
Next Gen restaurants are designed to meet DD Green Achievement™ specifications. Stores that achieve DD Green Achievement status are built with sustainable and efficient elements like LED lighting, high-efficiency mechanical equipment, low-flow faucets, and more. DD Green Achievement restaurants are performing better than designed. On average, they are 33% more energy efficient compared to conventional Dunkin’ restaurants.
