Friday, November 13, 2020

Dunkin’ announced it is unveiling its first-ever drive-thru only restaurant in Chattanooga at 3334 Broad St. this coming Tuesday.

At 5 a.m., Dunkin’ franchise network Bluemont Group LLC will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new store’s official opening. Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, at 8:30 a.m. Bluemont Group will host a check presentation to donate $2,000 to the Chattanooga Area Foodbank.
