Three years after the launch of the first Next Generation store model, Dunkin’ has hit their milestone 1000th location with the opening of a restaurant in Woodstock, GA. The March 26th opening was marked by a small ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Scott Murphy, Head of Inspire Brands Beverage-Snack Category and President of Dunkin’, and Mathias Piercy, Regional Vice President at Dunkin’, as well as a free coffee giveaway and multiple charitable donations from the company to local organizations.
The Next Gen model is categorized by a modern, innovative design catered to the on-the-go lifestyle of the typical Dunkin’ customer, with features such as a dedicated mobile order pick-up area, a digital order status board, and a mobile order-exclusive drive thru lane at select stores. The Next Gen model also boasts sophisticated elements such as innovative tap systems that pour premium cold drinks and a front-facing bakery case that displays a full range of bakery options.
Dunkin’ specifically designs all Next Gen stores to meet the brand’s DD Green Achievement specifications which allow for increased energy efficiency. Like other DD Green Achievement stores, the new Woodstock location is equipped with LED lighting, high-efficiency mechanical equipment, and additional features that contribute to sustainability.
