New Next Generation Restaurant
Brindley Construction has completed Dunkin’s newest Next Generation restaurant located at 1121 West College Street. A grand opening celebration was held on Saturday, June 4, 2022. Dunkin’ franchisee group Route 65, LLC hosted a ribbon cutting with community members and Cuppy, the Dunkin’ mascot, to celebrate the new store opening.
The new 2,000-square-foot restaurant employs up to 24 crew members and is open daily from 5 AM to 8 PM. With Dunkin’s Next Gen restaurant design, the store features a modern atmosphere and innovative technologies, including:
A Modern Design: The open concept, 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 Dunkin’s 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. On average, DD Green Achievement™ restaurants are 33% more energy efficient compared to conventional Dunkin’ restaurants.
Dunkin’ on Demand: Next Gen restaurants feature a dedicated mobile order pick-up area so guests who order ahead via the Dunkin’ app can get in and out of the restaurant faster than ever before. Guests can track the status of their mobile order placed for in-store pick-up via a digital order status board. Including the new Pulaski restaurant, Dunkin’ franchisee network Route 65, LLC currently owns and operates 45 Dunkin’ locations throughout Massachusetts and Tennessee.
The entire Brindley team, including Project Manager Bryan Brindley, Superintendent Charlie Helton, and Project Assistant Jenny Hobbs, was honored to work with Route 65, LLC as they continue to grow throughout Tennessee.
