WARSAW — Dunkin’ in Warsaw held its grand opening ceremony this morning, March 1. The restaurant, located at 2234 E. Center St., is famous for its donuts and coffee.
Mayor Joe Thallemer officiated the grand opening ceremony with a coffee toast. Members of the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce were also present at the restaurant’s opening and ribbon cutting ceremony.
“I’m very glad to see more businesses opening on Center Street,” said Thallemer. “But I’d also like to remind citizens not to block traffic on Center while coming into Dunkin’.”
This restaurant is the third Next Gen Dunkin’ in the country. These new locations have more drink options, including a brewpub-style tap system and nitro-infused cold brew coffee. The Warsaw location also offers digital kiosks in the store and a dedicated mobile order drive-thru.
The grand opening celebration included free travel mugs for the first 150 customers, 99 cent medium hot or iced coffee, $1 off a dozen donuts, and free medium or iced coffee with a donation of $1 or more to the Salvation Army.
Salvation Army representatives were present at the ceremony and received donations collected from customers since the soft opening on Feb. 18, plus $250 from the Warsaw Dunkin’ location.
The restaurant is open daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will be the only Dunkin’ location in town following a location that closed in the area years ago.
“Dunkin’ is one of the world’s leading brands and we know it will become a favorite in Warsaw for keeping busy, on-the-go people energized with delicious coffee, food and other beverages any time of day,” said Kalpesh Patel, franchisee co-owner. “We are proud to serve the people who live and work here, and look forward to becoming a popular destination for guests.”
