By the Numbers: Dunkin Donuts Drive-Thru

America runs on Dunkin, but what kinds of sales numbers does a Dunkin Donuts need to run?

The Dunkin Donuts at 54 Main Street could soon undergo a transformation that would allow for the installation of a drive-thru if the owner of the property has their way.

As the owner and company plead their case, they revealed a slew of interesting numbers about this Dunkin Donuts and your average Dunkin Donuts.

  • $250,000 — The estimated cost of construction at the site to allow for a drive-thru.
  • 150 — The number of transactions an hour a Dunkin Donuts drive-thru can handle.
  • 60 — The number of transactions per hour the Dunkin Donuts at 54 Main Street currently has. Dunkin Donuts on Route 20 by Route 495 have two to three times as much business.
  • 66 percent — The amount of drive-thru business that is estimated to occur at the site if the drive-thru is complete.
  • 3 a.m. — The earliest that deliveries will be allowed at the Dunkin Donuts.

Officials from Dunkin Donuts and the owner of the land say the drive-thru is completely necessary to keep the store in the area. Dunkin Donuts will not renue the lease without a drive-thru.

The matter was referred to Urban Affairs for further discussion.

Well, it would surely start a "little more travel action" in Marlborough's Downtown area, besides The Vin Bin at that end of town anyway, right? Although, one of the Councilor's did point out that some folks have become a "little too imaginative", when it comes to getting and leaving Dunkin Donuts locations in the past? Could that be the "Java Rush", before & after their final destination? "Drink For Thought" for sure, right? Make a great day happen! Enjoy!
