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.
