Pittsboro first Dunkin' opens


The first Dunkin' in Pittsboro opened this week at 40 Ramseur Road. The restaurant, which will employ some 35 people, opened Monday morning with franchise owner George Ross presenting a check for $4,000 to the Special Olympics of North Carolina.

The restaurant includes a drive-thru, free wi-fi and the brand’s modern next-generation look and feel. In addition to the traditional drive-up and in-store ordering, customers can also order coffee, donuts and other items from the Dunkin' app and get updates on their order from an in-store screen.
