DUNKIN’ DONUTS Celebrates Opening Of First Inland Empire Restaurant On March 10


Upland restaurant guests to enjoy free medium hot or iced coffee offer, ribbon cutting ceremony and opening day giveaways!

Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, is bringing its first Inland Empire location to the residents of Upland. Located at 352 South Mountain Avenue, the restaurant will open at 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 10, and attendees will enjoy a free medium hot or iced coffee promotion for the first 24 hours. This new location will provide Inland Empire residents with Dunkin’ Donuts’ iconic offerings from freshly brewed coffee to delicious baked goods.


As part of the opening day festivities, the first 100 people in line will receive a Dunkin’ Donuts tote bag filled with special items and the first person in both the walk-in and drive-thru lines will be rewarded with free coffee for one year. In true Dunkin’ Donuts fashion, guests will be greeted with free passed samples, photo opportunities with adored brand mascot, Cuppy, and special giveaways throughout the day.


“We’re very proud to commemorate our first 2015 California opening with the introduction of our Upland restaurant,” said Monica Apodaca, Senior Field Marketing Manager, Dunkin’ Brands. “We’re confident that this new location will be the Inland Empire’s go-to destination for coffee, lattes, frozen beverages, sandwiches and baked goods.”


Local city dignitaries will be in attendance to commence the ceremonial grand opening ribbon cutting and welcome Dunkin’ Donuts to the neighborhood. The opening ceremony will also include a check presentation to Steven’s Hope for Children, a local non-profit organization that helps families of seriously ill or injured children by providing assistance to lessen the burden of the families. In alignment with Dunkin’ Donuts’ goal to support children’s health in America’s communities, the restaurant will donate $1,000 to further the organization’s local efforts.


The Upland franchise will be operated by new franchisee, Batter Boys, Inc., owned by Southern California residents Jeff Shady and Jordon DiBiase. The pair has plans to develop seven additional standalone restaurants in the North Inland Empire.


“We have had the chance to witness the outpouring of enthusiasm surrounding the recent Dunkin’ Donuts openings in Southern California, and we feel privileged to bring the same excitement to the residents of Upland,” said Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee Jeff Shady. “We believe Dunkin’ Donuts will soon become a staple in the Inland Empire community because of its commitment to fast and friendly service while providing guests with high-quality food and beverages day in and day out.”
