It’s open today, but the new Hernando Dunkin will hold a grand opening at its 151 East Commerce Street location on Friday, May 17. Hernando and a new location in Cordova, Tennessee are the newest Memphis-area locations for the coffee shop chain and will feature Dunkin’s Next Generation store design, enhancing guests’ experience and making their daily Dunkin’ run faster and more convenient than ever before.

On Friday morning, starting at 5 a.m., the Hernando Dunkin will celebrate by giving away free coffee for a year to the first 100 in-store customers.
From 5-10 a.m. during the store celebration, customers will be invited to enjoy free Dunkin’ giveaways, along with a special appearance from Dunkin’ mascot Cuppy. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m.

Corporate officials said in a news release that with Dunkin’s Next Gen restaurant design, these stores feature a modern atmosphere, convenient drive-thru, and innovative technologies, including:

A Modern Design: The openness, colors, and materials used in the design help create an approachable, positive, and energetic environment. Just one example of the eye-catching design elements that guests can expect is a front-facing bakery case for an even closer look at our delicious baked goods.  

Premium Pours: Dunkin’s signature cold beverages are poured through an innovative tap system, serving a variety of consistently cold sips, such as iced coffee, iced tea, Cold Brew, and Nitro-Infused Cold Brew (a Next Gen exclusive!). Crew members also use top-quality, flavor-maximizing espresso machines to make handcrafted drinks to order.  

Dunkin’ on Demand: Next Gen restaurants feature a dedicated mobile order pick-up area so guests who order ahead via the Dunkin’ App can get in and out of the restaurant faster than ever before. Guests can track the status of their mobile order placed for in-store pick-up via a digital order status board. At select Next Gen restaurants, we also offer a dedicated drive-thru lane for mobile order pick-ups.
