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 am CST.

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 pm 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 am-10 pm and Sunday from 6 am-9 pm 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.
