Newly remodeled restaurant in Wynantskill with modern features and innovative technologies officially celebrates grand re-opening

WYNANTSKILL, N.Y.– Residents who live and work in Wynantskill can now enjoy Dunkin’s next generation store design. Dunkin’, America’s favorite all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, today celebrated the official grand re-opening of its newly renovated restaurant at 69 Main Avenue.

Dunkin’ franchisee Ivo Garcia celebrated the grand re-opening by donating $3,000 to the Hope 7 Community Center in partnership with the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. The Hope 7 Community Center will use the funding to support its food pantry which assists children facing food insecurity on the East Side of Troy and Wynantskill.

The newly remodeled 1,600-square-foot Dunkin’ employs approximately 16 crew members 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 are now poured through an innovative tap system serving eight consistently cold beverages such as iced coffee, iced tea, 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.
  • Dunkin’ on Demand: Dunkin’ has also introduced an area dedicated to mobile pickups, so that members of the Dunkin’ Rewards program who order ahead via Dunkin’s Mobile App can get in and out of the restaurant faster than ever before.
  • Increased Energy Efficiency: The new Dunkin’ is a DD Green Achievement™ restaurant, which is designed to save 25% more energy compared to a standard Dunkin’ restaurant.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Dunkin’s next generation store initiative and are excited to introduce this innovative new restaurant to Rensselaer County,” said Dunkin’ Franchisee Ivo Garcia. “The new menu offerings and approachable atmosphere will grab the attention of Dunkin’ fans and help keep Wynantskill running on Dunkin’ for years to come.”

The grand opening celebration also featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony, giveaways and special offers for valued guests.
