Although it looks like a regular Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant, this one is special. The owners of this restaurant decided to invest in equipment that’s better for the environment and works more efficiently. They also built it in a more sustainable and healthier way. Because of their efforts, this store has earned DD Green Achievement.
Here’s how these benefits were achieved...

Mechanical equipment and ductwork were protected from dust and contamination during construction.
HIGHLY EFFICIENT HVAC SYSTEMS
Main mechanical systems meet higher efficiency standards.
LOW FLOW FIXTURES
Low-flow plumbing fixtures were installed to reduce water consumption.
ZERO-VOC PAINT USE
To promote indoor air quality, interior paints use no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).
BUILDING OPERATIONS TRAINING
Staff have been trained to ensure efficient and appropriate building operations.
LED LIGHT FIXTURES
LED fixtures used throughout the building reduce overall energy consumption.
REGIONALLY FRIENDLY LANDSCAPING
All landscaping used a regionally friendly or native species.
DD GREEN COMMITMENT
