Dunkin’ Donuts will introduce its next generation of stores in Delaware.

The global chain today announced that it will open its first “next generation concept store” in Wilmington on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 3446 Naamans Road. The shop will feature a modern atmosphere and innovative technologies to make running on Dunkin’ faster and more convenient.

The 1,800-square-foot Wilmington location is one of the 60 or more new and remodeled Dunkin’ restaurants that will test variations of the new design. Dunkin’s final design is expected to be unveiled once the testing is complete. The Wilmington store will also feature new signage that refers to the brand simply as “Dunkin”.

The new location will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m. – 9 p.m. and will employ approximately 20 crew members and offer free Wi-Fi. Nilesh Patel is Dunkin’s franchisee for the restaurant and currently operates four Dunkin’ restaurants throughout Delaware.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Dunkin’s next generation store initiative and can’t wait to bring this innovative new restaurant to the Wilmington community,” Patel said. “The new menu offerings and approachable atmosphere will grab the attention of Dunkin’ fans and help keep Wilmington running on Dunkin’ for years to come.”

The new Dunkin’ restaurant experience will include:

  • Modern Design: The special interior design uses lighter colored materials, an open layout and natural light to create an approachable, positive and energetic environment.
  • Premium Pours: Dunkin’s signature cold beverages are now served through an innovative tap system serving eight consistently cold beverages such as coffees, iced teas, cold brew coffee and nitro infused cold brew coffee. Crew members will use top-quality flavor-maximizing espresso machines to make hand-crafted drinks to order. A single-cup machine will also enable the option of grinding and brewing select coffee varieties one cup at a time.
  • Increased Energy Efficiency: The new Wilmington Dunkin’ is one of the DD Green Achievementâ„¢ restaurants in the country. DD Green Achievement restaurants are designed to save 25% more energy compared to a standard Dunkin’ restaurant.
