Dunkin' Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, has opened a new location in Warrior, Alabama. The new restaurant is operated by veteran restaurateur, Ramon Arias, and opened its doors on September 9, at 313 Cane Creek Road. The Arias family currently operates 45 other restaurants in the community and this will be their first Dunkin' Donuts store opening. “I have had great success with my other Birmingham stores and am excited to be joining the Dunkin' brand and entering the Warrior community,” says franchisee Ramon Arias. “I look forward to bringing Dunkin' Donuts to the wonderful people of Warrior and its many thriving businesses.” The opening of Warrior’s first Dunkin' Donuts will add 60 new jobs to the City’s economy. “There is a positive impact on a community when a new business opens and begins hiring locally,” said Celia Cody, Field Marketing Manager for Dunkin' Donuts. “Dunkin' Donuts is one of the world’s leading brands and we are proud to serve the people of Warrior as both a retailer and an employer.” The 2,000 sq. ft. restaurant will operate 24-hours and its location on Cane Creek Road means that it will not only be able to conveniently service local businesses and residences but is also highly accessible to travelers on Interstate 65. The new store includes a drive-thru, free wi-fi and televisions for customer convenience and enjoyment. The new restaurant will offer guests Dunkin' Donuts’ high-quality, great-tasting menu items that can be enjoyed all day, including classic favorites such as a wide variety of hot and iced coffee, lattes and cappuccinos, and new menu innovations such as Bakery Sandwiches.
