At 10:00 AM on July 10, local Dunkin’ franchisee network Upcounty Frederick Donuts welcomed City Administrator David Dunn for the store’s official ribbon cutting ceremony. Following the ribbon cutting, Upcounty Frederick Donuts, alongside the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation,  presented a $1,000 grant to the Brunswick Food Bank to further its mission to provide food to those in need throughout Frederick County.

The Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins combo store, which officially opened in late March, provides Brunswick with the brand’s next gen store design, which features innovations and technologies to enhance the customer experience. The 2,000 square-foot Brunswick location employs 26 crew members, is open daily from 5:00AM to 10:00PM, and features Dunkin’s new restaurant design, with a modern atmosphere, innovative technologies and exciting elements, including:

  • Modern Design: The openness, colors, and materials used in the design help to create an approachable, positive, and energetic environment.
  • Premium Pours: Dunkin’s signature cold beverages will be served through an innovative tap system serving eight consistently cold drinks, such as coffees, iced teas, Cold Brew, and Nitro Infused Cold Brew. Crew members will also use top-quality, flavor-maximizing espresso machines to make hand-crafted 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% more energy efficient compared to conventional Dunkin’ restaurants.

Including the Brunswick restaurant, the Dunkin’ franchisee network, Upcounty Frederick Donuts, currently owns and operates 17 Dunkin’ locations throughout Maryland and Texas.
