A famous coffee and donut chain with stores all over the world will hold a grand opening party at its new Englewood store at 849 South Main Street at 10 a.m.
Dunkin’ franchisee Gilligan Company spokesperson Julea Schuh Remke said the coffee shop has been in soft opening mode since December 22.
“We are in a soft opening stage to ensure that we perfect things before the entire area catches wind,” Remke previously said. “It was evident in our first week open that the people of Englewood have been anticipating our arrival.”
The new 1,500-square-foot Dunkin’ Donuts can be found in what was once an empty lot next to Buffalo Wild Wings. According to Remke, the restaurant has a staff of roughly 15 people, and it provides clients with both indoor seating and Wi-Fi.
The Dunkin’ Donuts location in Englewood is a “Next Gen” restaurant that provides customers with an improved store ambience. DDPerks members who order ahead via the Dunkin’ Mobile App will be able to bypass the ordering lane and head straight into the line for the pickup window, as stated in a press release released by Gilligan Company. The new modern design also includes a front-facing bakery case for a closer look at baked goods. Some of Dunkin’ Donuts’ most popular cold drinks are served through a tap system at the restaurant.
“Next-Gen restaurants are designed to meet DD Green Achievement specifications,” the release said. “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. On average, they are 33% more energy efficient compared to conventional Dunkin’ restaurants.”
Gilligan Company and Northmont Schools’ Community Table program are collaborating for the grand opening.
“We are extremely happy to be part of the Englewood community, which has welcomed us with open arms,” Remke said.
