What's better than when a brand new Dunkin' opens up on your exact drive to and from everything you do in life?

Don't get me wrong, there are two Dunkin' locations that I go to on a daily basis and as much as I like both of them, they are not exactly right on my way locations. One is on Main Street in Acushnet and I've been going there for years. And the other is the newest Dunkin' in Fairhaven; it's the new NextGen Dunkin' and I love everything about this new store. I love the look of it with their fancy tap cold beverages and the layout of the inside. The drive-thru moves pretty quickly, too. But this is also not exactly in line with my Toyota's autopilot (it has a mind of its own).

I was at the grand opening of the new Fairhaven NextGen Dunkin' back in September, broadcasting live, and was chatting with some of the gals who work there and also a few from other locations. One of these women mentioned how the next New Bedford area-Dunkin' would be breaking ground soon and that it would also be a NextGen location.

The other day I was on 195 east and using exit 16 to get off the highway, and as I approached that stop sign on Washburn Street to take a right onto Belleville Road, I saw what looked like a "Coming Soon" sign in the signature Dunkin' colors and lettering. As I approached, I literally had to pull over to take a couple of pictures of the new home to the newest NextGen Dunkin' coming our way. And I take this road almost every single day, so it's going to be so convenient.

We don't have an exact grand opening date but knowing how quickly the Fairhaven store went up, my guess is by the holidays.
