The new Dunkin’ Donuts in Overland Park will celebrate its grand opening, Thursday, Nov. 12, with Hall of Famer George Brett launching an on-site food drive for Harvesters Community Food Network.
The new restaurant, located at 7722 W. 151st St., is owned by local developer Verona Key LLC, which plans to open 15 new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Greater Kansas City.
Doors will open to the public at 5 a.m. Brett will arrive at 7 a.m. to officially kick off the “Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee for Cans” food drive at the new restaurant. At 9 a.m., he will be joined by Harvesters President and CEO Karen Haren and City Council President Fred Spears for the store ribbon-cutting ceremony.
A large, 53-foot trailer truck will be on site through Friday, Nov. 13, to collect canned goods for Harvesters. Each person who brings at least three cans of food during the two-day period will receive a coupon for a Free Medium DD coffee, no purchase necessary.
