It's 5:45am. What does that mean? The doors to Dunkin' Donuts SECOND Twin Ports location are about open for the first time... in 15 minutes. It also means that you better jump in your car and head there right now.
The new store located at 3110 Tower Avenue replaces a former Mr. Movie's location. The building has been under construction since early summer. The construction itself included major interior and exterior renovations in order to bring it up to the Dunkin' Donuts design standards.
The new location looks very similar (if not identical) to the location that opened this past June in Duluth on Central Entrance. That location opened to long-lines and exceptional sales as Twin Ports (and Northland) residents turned out in mass numbers. Today it's clear that Dunkin' Donuts is a hit a hit with the Northland.
Superior's location employs 50 and will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. It features a drive-thru window along with indoor seating and of course a full menu filled with delicious coffee and those famous donuts.
Brian Weidendorf is the CEO of Donco, LLC, the company who runs both the Twin Ports Dunkin' Donuts locations. Based out of Hinkley, MN the company has plans for five more Dunkin' Donuts locations in Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin over the next two to three years (we'll wait until next week to start speculating on where's next).
You love donuts and coffee. You love free things. And of course you love supporting a good cause. Well then, you'll love what Dunkin' Donuts has in store (literally) later this month.
Dunkin' Donuts will host a grand opening on October 29th at their Superior location. The event will support the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Northland. Representatives will be distributing FREE Dunkin' Donuts travel mugs along with free medium coupons to all who donate. We're sure there will be some donuts in there too.
Dunkin' Donuts will also present a $1,000 donation to the charity.
