On Friday, March 6, 2009, music will be playing and coffee will be flowing at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 4431 S. Scatterfield Rd. in Anderson to celebrate their grand opening. The LJ Mechem Band will be on hand beginning at 7:30 a.m. to help wake up customers and bring on the weekend.
At 9 a.m., restaurant owners Dennis Gramm and Craig Sanders will celebrate Dunkin’ Donuts’ place in the community by presenting a cash ribbon donation to the Anderson Indiana Main Street program (AIMS), which supports civic, cultural, social and economic activities in downtown Anderson. Linda Dawson, Executive Director of Economic Development; Nancy Moneyhun, AIMS President; and other local officials will accept the $750 donation on behalf of AIMS.
Free small hot or iced coffee will be given away, no purchase necessary, from 9 a.m. – noon, and the Dunkin’ Donuts sampling crew will distribute other free food items from Dunkin’ Donuts’ breakfast and all-day menus.
In addition, WFMS 95.5 will broadcast live from the store starting at 10 a.m. until noon.
The Dunkin’ Donuts on Scatterfield opened for business on Dec. 16. Anderson’s first Dunkin’ Donuts, also owned by Gramm and Sanders, opened Nov. 20 at 14th and Jackson in downtown. Both Anderson stores will give away free coffee from 9 a.m. – noon on March 6.
Gramm and Sanders, who own the HSG Restaurant Group, LLC of Indianapolis, currently operate eight Dunkin’ Donuts in Central Indiana. Both Anderson Dunkin’ Donuts are open seven days a week, and feature drive-thru windows and the brand’s recently updated store design.
