Just kidding.

But I heard this thing was going to be optimized for drive-thru with multiple windows. Anyone have any info on that?

The one in Weymouth before the bridge is tough in the AM.

Glad to get a look at it, but the portrait-mode video

with copious shaky-cam is amateurish and annoying.

I don't care for Dunks coffee, but I'd try that nitro version.

Plenty of good reasons to experiment with new store formats and even a big rebranding. Name-shortening doesn't bother me: the donuts have been unspeakable for years. Don't get me started on the "bagels".

I was pretty cynical about

I was pretty cynical about the Dunkin'. I thought it was just dropping the name with a few aesthetic upgrades. I even have a thought their long term game is to get rid of donuts to focus on their much higher margin coffee but they want to get rid of the name first.

I still don't see the point of the name change, but I am impressed from watching his review. The nitro coffee looks good. The donuts looks good too (but it is just presentation, but I hope they are bringing back their older ways). I hope it get push to the other stores.
