At the beginning of February, Hoover opened their very first Dunkin‘ location through Bluemont Group, LLC, bringing in customers from all over the city to purchase the famous Damelio-approved coffee and select from a wide variety of donuts. Today, Dunkin’ celebrated the grand opening with Hoover City Council and Bluemont Group employees.

Bluemont Group is a franchise of Dunkin’ that has allowed the doughnuts to stretch across the Southeastern United States. Over the past 12 years, under President and Operating Partner Dave Baumgarner, the group has massively expanded their locations. Originally beginning in Knoxville and Chattanooga, Dunkin’ now has over 50 stores reaching Middle and East Tennessee, Northern Georgia, Central Alabama and Western North Carolina.

“We are doing a chamber ribbon cutting, and we’re really thrilled everyone is here. The store’s just recently opened and it’s time to launch it officially. We are excited for all these business leaders to see our new site and know about the location and hopefully we’ll get them to test our fantastic coffee and donuts.”

The Dunkin’ in Hoover has been busy with customers lining up for the world-famous donuts, but Birmingham is not the only town that can’t get enough. City Council Member John Lyda recognizes the need for this franchise.

“We’re excited anytime a new business comes, which for a brand like Dunkin’ to choose the city of Hoover for their next store is really an honor for the city. Dunkin’ has obviously grown double their store locations over the last two years throughout the United states, so for them to choose not only Hoover but this 280 store is big for us.”
