Dunkin’ Donuts opening first next generation restaurant in Franklin

Dunkin’ Donuts in Franklin is located at 917 Georgia Road at the old Bojangles location.

Dunkin’ Donuts opened its doors last Thursday at its new location in Franklin at 917 Georgia Road. The new store features Dunkin’s new store design, which features innovative technologies to enhance the guest’s experience and make their daily Dunkin’ run faster and more convenient than ever before.

The new 2,500 square-foot restaurant features indoor seating for 28 guests and plans to employ 25 crew members. The store is open daily from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. With Dunkin’s Next Gen restaurant design, the store features a modern atmosphere 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 our 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. 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% more energy efficient compared to conventional Dunkin’ restaurants.

Including the new Franklin restaurant, Dunkin’ franchisee network Ion Donuts Holdings, LLC currently owns and operates 49 Dunkin’ locations throughout Georgia and North Carolina.

The store will host a grand opening celebration for guests on Saturday, Oct. 16.
