Dunkin’ will host the grand opening celebration of its newest Next Generation restaurant in Kimball, at 120 Main St., on Tuesday. The store will give away free coffee and donuts for a month to the first 50 guests in line and first 50 guests in the drive thru starting at 5 a.m. CST.

Guests are invited to enter a raffle to win a custom Dunkin’ branded skateboard between 5 a.m. and 12 a.m. CST. To continue the celebration, guests can enjoy a $.99 medium hot or iced coffee from Tuesday through Monday, May 31.

Dunkin’ franchisee network, Bluemont Group, will host a ribbon cutting with Kimball city officials and the Marion County Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the new store opening at 9 a.m. CST. Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, Bluemont Group will host a check presentation to donate $2,000 to Marion County Community Ministries. To show its commitment to the Kimball community, the new store will host an all-day food drive to benefit Marion County Community Ministries. 

Later in the day, the new Dunkin’ will host a community block party with live entertainment, face painters, a balloon artist and bounce houses from 6-8 p.m. CST.

The new 2,000 square-foot restaurant can seat 14 guests inside with outdoor seating available. The store will employ 20 crew members and open Monday through Saturday from 5 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sunday from 6 a.m.-9 p.m. With Dunkin’s new restaurant design, officials said the store features a modern atmosphere, convenient drive-thru, and innovative technologies, including: 

A Modern Design: The openness, colors, and materials used in the design help create an approachable, positive, and energetic environment. Just one example of the eye-catching design elements that guests can expect is a front-facing bakery case for an even closer look at delicious baked goods.  

Premium Pours: Dunkin’s signature cold beverages are poured through an innovative tap system, serving a variety of consistently cold sips, such as iced coffee, iced tea, Cold Brew, and Nitro-Infused Cold Brew (a Next Gen exclusive). Crew members also use top-quality, flavor-maximizing espresso machines to make handcrafted drinks to order.  

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 percent more energy efficient compared to conventional Dunkin' restaurants.

22 Questions And Concerns About A New $79.5 Million Lookouts Stadium

The proposal for the Lookouts stadium brings forth several questions that I have not gotten good answers yet from anyone. 1. If the 10 acres Gary Chazen is donating is worth $10,000,000, why doesn’t he and his partners just sell the 140 acres and go to the bank with over $100,000,000? 2. There has been over a billion dollars of new construction in downtown Chattanooga ... (click for more)

New Stadium Does Not Pass The Smell Test - And Response

I can't find any logical reasons that the new Lookout stadium is being placed where it is other than to think it's a combination of favoritism and eliminating an eyesore. All statistics point to an illogical decision coupled with questionable tax breaks/support. Lookouts average attendance in 2018 (all that I could quickly find) was 3,206 per game and ranked 74th among ... (click for more)
