Dunkin’ Donuts debuted its 500th New York City location, a co-branded unit with Dunkin’ Brands’ sibling Baskin-Robbins, on Tuesday.
The new restaurant, which is located across from New York’s Port Authority on West 42nd Street, features the brands’ new restaurant design concept, which includes digital menu displays and updated furniture and lighting. The unit also offers electrical outlets and bar top areas for smartphones and computers, and free Wi-Fi access for guests. The unit offers full Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins menus.
The restaurant is franchised by Rich Greenstein and Howard Novick, who currently operate 22 Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins branches in the New York metropolitan area.
The opening kicked off Tuesday with a gala ribbon cutting with Dunkin’ Brands chief executive Nigel Travis.
“Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins are two of the world’s most beloved brands, and we’re excited about opening this location, which will provide those who pass through the ‘crossroads of the world’ with Dunkin’ Donuts’ fresh and affordable coffee and baked goods, and Baskin-Robbins’ ice cream and frozen treats,” Travis said.
Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 10,500 locations in 31 countries. Baskin-Robbins has more than 7,000 outlets in 50 countries.
