Dunkin to open just south of Central and Rock in August
Dan’s Day begins construction of its fifth zone in Wichita Dunkin store, and this one is in a prominent location just south of the southeast corner of Central and Rock Road.
Day has been studying this area for some time. He said he knew it was one of the busiest in town, but for his purposes he needed to know which intersection jumped in the morning.
Seventy percent of Dunkin’s business takes place before 11 a.m.
In fact, Central and Rock did the trick as well, but Day then had to figure out how to make it happen.
“That’s when I ended up with Doug Malone», He said about ICT capital partner.
“He just worked really hard to make it happen.
Donuts Krispy Kreme is just west of the intersection.
The new Dunkin will be the last prototype in the chain.
“Dunkin is trying to do it. . . change some things for the future, ”says Day. “The look, of course, is very different.”
The interior is bright and open, and there’s a dedicated area for mobile order pickups. There is also a drive-thru service.
There is also a new faucet system that serves eight cold drinks, such as cold brew coffee and cold brew nitro coffee.
While breakfast is the best selling time for Dunkin, it is open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
The Dunkin version also includes a redesign of the LoanMax securities lending building to the north of it, which will house the 2,000-square-foot stand-alone Dunkin and drive-thru.
The new Dunkin is a Created by DD Green restaurant, which means it saves 25% more energy than a typical Dunkin.
The company of the day, NewDays LLC, had been named Restaurant Manager of the Year over 500 Dunkin stores in the west of the country.
It first entered the Wichita market in 2014 and is set to open the No.4 store next month near Patriot and Rock Road in Derby.
The Central and Rock Road Dunkin will be # 5.
Day already has a Dunkin in West Wichita, but he says he wants one more there.
“I really want to have another one on the west side. . . . We are looking really hard.
