Dunkin’ Donuts Opens Its First LEED Restaurant

dunkin_donuts.jpgDunkin’ Donuts unveiled its first LEED certified restaurant in Florida. The St. Petersburg LEED certified store broke ground in May 2008, and will serve as a prototype for the company’s future green construction projects.

The restaurant features energy-efficient insulated concrete foam walls to reduce air conditioning use by approximately 40 percent, energy-efficient lighting – including motion sensors for restrooms and offices, and water-efficient plumbing fixtures including low-flush toilets and well water rather than potable water for all irrigation.

In addition, the restaurant will have an on-site Earthworm Casting facility, which will house 80 pounds of red earthworms to eat the waste produced by the store. Dunkin’ Donuts will also donate leftover baked goods to America’s Second Harvest, a local food bank.
