In the same spot where it all began 72 years ago, our first-ever Dunkin’ at 543 Southern Artery in Quincy, Massachusetts recently got a makeover and celebrated its re-opening with a grand celebration last month.
Dunkin’ fans young and old gathered at the OG restaurant to partake in the fun, including photo ops with our very own Cuppy and local team mascots, Blades from the Boston Bruins, Lucky the Leprechaun from the Boston Celtics and Pat the Patriot from the New England Patriots. We even gave one year’s worth of free Dunkin’ coffee to the first 100 customers!
Local business and government leaders were on site for the festivities, including MA Speaker of the House Ronald Mariano, State Senators John Keenan and Patrick O’Connor, Quincy Mayor Thomas Koch and Council President Noel DiBona.
During the ceremony, the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation also presented a $5,000 grant to Interfaith Social Services, a local nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of South Shore families in need.
The original Dunkin's next-gen remodel includes an innovative cold beverage tap system, a front-facing bakery case and increased energy efficiency that meets DD Green Achievement specifications. But amid all these updates, the legacy of the original Dunkin' has been preserved through nostalgic features like its exterior Dunkin' Donuts sign, diner-style countertops, and interior walls that highlight the restaurant’s history.
The design is now a perfect blend of Next-Gen and nostalgia, with innovations to help busy people the freshest, most delicious coffee, donuts and snacks to fuel a busy day, no matter where it takes you.
The next time you’re in Quincy, stop by and say hello!
