Rockville Dunkin'/Baskin Robbins hosts grand opening Thursday w/ 99¢ ice cream scoops, giveaways

The new Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robbins store at 16268 Frederick Road, on the border of Rockville and Gaithersburg, will hold its grand opening tomorrow, Thursday, August 4, 2022, starting at 9:00 AM. If you are one of the first 100 customers, you will win free coffee for a year.

All day on Thursday, guests will be invited to take advantage of a 99-cent Single Scoop Ice Cream offer. From 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM, guests can win prizes from the Dunkin’ Prize Wheel, and enjoy on-site music and an appearance by Dunkin’ mascot Cuppy. At 10:00 AM, franchisee Frank Hennessey will host the store’s official ribbon cutting ceremony. Afterward, Hennessey, in partnership with the Joy in Childhood Foundation will present a $1,000 grant to Manna Food Center of Gaithersburg.

The new store is an example of the brand's Next Generation design. That includes an updated, modern interior designed to promote a sense of welcoming and positive energy, the Premium Pours tap and Nitro system, and a special area just for pick-up orders. Best of all, the new location includes a drive-thru!

Update on new Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robbins in Rockville (Photos)

The drive-thru menu board has been installed at the future Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robbins at 16268 Frederick Road in Rockville. It is located on the Shady Grove Road side of the property. The existing Dunkin' Donuts at 16220 Frederick Road will relocate over here when it is completed. We now can see which Baskin Robbins items can be ordered at the drive-thru, a rare amenity for an ice cream shop.

New Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robbins with drive-thru nearing completion in Rockville (Photos)

Signs and banners are up at the new Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins with drive-thru at 16268 Frederick Road in Rockville. However, as I predicted, the store is oriented toward Shady Grove Road more than MD 355. The existing Dunkin' Donuts at 16220 Frederick Road will move into this one. Parking spaces are painted, and the ordering canopy is in place, but they still have to install the drive-thru menu board and speaker.

Rockville bank-to-Dunkin' Donuts conversion advancing (Photos)

A vacant drive-thru bank branch at 16268 Frederick Road in Rockville is rapidly becoming a new Dunkin' Donuts store. As you can see in these photos, the drive-thru's canopy and parts of the bank building itself are now sporting Dunkin' colors. The current Dunkin' Donuts shop at 16220 Frederick will relocate into this building when the conversion is complete. Almost "time to make the donuts" at this new store, on the border of Rockville and Gaithersburg.

New Rockville Dunkin' offering Tap System Tuesdays through March 9

Rockville's newest Dunkin', which opened recently at 14801 Southlawn Drive, is offering a special Tap System Tuesdays promotion every Tuesday through March 9, 2021. For $2, guests can order a Small Cold Brew or Nitro Cold Brew served from the restaurant’s Premium Pours tap system.

You may notice from the photos that the design of this Dunkin building is unique compared to other locations. The differences are more than cosmetic. This location is 25% more energy efficient than the standard Dunkin' store design. It has digital ordering kiosks inside the store, and the fastest-ever Dunkin' drive-thru experience using the Dunkin' app.

First Montgomery County coronavirus death reported; Best Buy closes all stores, offers curbside pickup

Still "time to make the
donuts" at your neighborhood
Montgomery County
Dunkin' Donuts store

Montgomery County has led the state of Maryland in coronavirus cases. Late Saturday night, the first death from coronavirus in Montgomery County sadly was confirmed by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan. According to the Maryland Department of Health, the deceased patient was a woman in her 40s, who had underlying medical conditions that complicated her battle against the covid-19 virus.

Also yesterday, Best Buy announced that it would be closing all of its stores, effective immediately. Their stores will continue to sell products, but sales will be via curbside pickup at your nearest store.

Your local Dunkin' Donuts stores in Montgomery County are still open for carry-out and drive-thru sales. You can also use their app (scan the QR code in the image above to get the app) for touchless ordering.

Hot Pot Legend at 595 Hungerford Drive also announced yesterday that it was closing temporarily. They had been offering curbside pickup and delivery, but said they were ceasing all operations to protect their employees and families. Hot Pot Legend plans to reopen once the crisis has passed.

Rockville Dunkin' Donuts closes

One of the Dunkin' Donuts in Rockville has closed. The Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robbins store at 777 Hungerford Drive has been permanently shuttered. This is the one by Flagship Car Wash.
Fortunately, there is a nice newer Dunkin' Donuts a short distance up Route 355 at College Plaza, and it even has a drive-thru. Dunkin' Donuts has been massively expanding in our area - and across central and southern Maryland - in recent years, making store openings much more common than closures.

The permanent sign is installed at the future Dunkin' Donuts in the Galvan development near the Twinbrook Metro station in Rockville. A "D" door handle has also been installed outside.

Shobha, which aspires to be "the global destination for hair removal," is coming to Galvan at Twinbrook at 1800 Rockville Pike.

Dunkin' Donuts, meanwhile, has installed Coming Soon signage at its Galvan space. The interior build-out is still underway there, as you can tell from the photos below. Smashburger is primed to open at Galvan next Wednesday, as I reported last week.

Another Dunkin' Donuts coming to Rockville - this time in Twinbrook

The latest addition to the growing Dunkin' Donuts empire in Rockville will be at The JBG Companies' Galvan development at 1800 Rockville Pike. Near the Twinbrook Metro station and the Hilton hotel, the mixed-use project will be anchored by a Safeway grocery store.

Meanwhile, construction continues inside another Dunkin' Donuts store in the Mallory Square development further north at 15251 Siesta Key Way. Boris Lander, principal of the Luis Group that owns the franchises, says he expects the Mallory Square location to open in late August. They plan to have a free coffee giveaway to celebrate that opening, so stay tuned as the time approaches.

Lander says the Galvan Dunkin' Donuts will open in 2016. The Galvan building is still under construction.

Dunkin' Donuts drive-thru location plans opening today in Rockville (Photos)

There's new competition for the Fallsgrove drive-thru Krispy Kreme in Rockville as of this morning. A new Dunkin' Donuts location plans to open in College Plaza today, in the former Chicken Out/A&W space.

The even better news - they are actually going to use the drive-thru set up left from previous fast food tenants (unlike Chicken Out). As you can see, the drive-thru menu is already in place (and, yes, they do have the latest Croissant donut, Spicy Omelet Flatbread, and Rocky Road iced coffee).

You'll also note the building exterior has been given a freshening up. College Plaza is located at the intersection of Route 355 and College Parkway.

There's a new donut shop in town, and if that wasn't enough danger for your New Year's resolutions, it has a Baskin Robbins ice cream store in it, as well. The new store is located at 777 Hungerford Drive, next to 7-Eleven, and near the original Flagship Car Wash location. Another Dunkin' Donuts is opening in the College Plaza shopping center, as well.
