As we celebrate our 50th anniversary as a Dunkin Donuts franchise owner, we are proud to announce that three of our stores now feature a great number of energy efficient and environmentally friendly products and services, including solar electric power. Dunkin Donuts has long been a cornerstone of the New England way of life, and it is only fitting that we take a leadership position to help drive “greenovation” throughout our community.
To commemorate this landmark achievement, we will host a ceremony on Friday, May 1, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time at the Dunkin Donuts store at 219 South Main Street in Attleboro, Mass. All Dunkin’ Donuts franchise owners are cordially invited to attend, joining business leaders, local dignitaries, and other esteemed members of our community as we unveil one of the first fast food restaurants in the U.S. to adopt solar energy. The event will include tours of this innovative facility, as well as remarks from the visionaries who helped make this milestone possible.
We recognize the importance of alternative energy to the future of our economy-including the creation of much-needed jobs-and believe our involvement contributes to the state- and nation-wide commitment to clean, renewable energy. We look forward to seeing you at the event, and hope that our efforts inspire other franchisees to go green.
Art Krebs of Construction Art a DDIFO Associate Member will be present, he said “it’s a great opportunity to celebrate the the 50th anniversary occasion and promote awareness of Dunkin’s green involvement and solidarity with their communities.”
