A “Next Generation Dunkin'” is opening Wednesday at 240 El Camino Real in San Carlos.

Calling it the Dunkin’ “store of the future,” the new shop will have “innovative new features such as a cold beverage tap system and a sleek new interior design,” the company said on social media. The company, which last month announced a rebranding from Dunkin’ Donuts to simply Dunkin’, has been opening dozens of next generation coffee shops this year.

“Doors open at 5 a.m., and the first person in line will receive a $150 Dunkin’ gift card, with the second and third guests in line receiving a $50 gift card each,” according to an eventbrite for the grand opening.

A ribbon-cutting will occur at 8 a.m., and there will also be free food and beverage samples, special giveaways to the first 100 people in line, and an appearance from Dunkin’s mascot Cuppy. Dunkin’ will also donate to the San Carlos Education Foundation as part of the event.

The store will open seven days a week, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Menu items include specialty coffees, espresso, sandwiches, and baked goods, including donuts.
