Kota Kinabalu: DUNKIN’ has marked a significant milestone with the opening of its 100th Malaysian outlet at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) in Sabah on Wednesday.To date, it is the largest DUNKIN’ outlet in Malaysia, a 1,800 sq ft lifestyle café housing up to 88 customers, located kerbside at the arrival floor of KKIA – serving donuts, sandwiches and coffee daily from 6am to midnight.

Golden Donuts Sdn Bhd Managing Director Peter Yu said since a global rebranding exercise in 2019, the brand is taking a more coffee-centric approach, instead of focusing on donuts only. “This initiative is the extension of our coffee-forward direction, marking a transformation that underlines a warm and welcoming café-style approach that prominently puts DUNKIN’s coffee culture in the spotlight with new handcrafted espresso offerings.

“We love this place (Kota Kinabalu). I first came here 13 years ago and our first (DUNKIN’) shop was at the airport. “The opening of this newest outlet in KKIA marks the biggest milestone yet for DUNKIN’ by far since we embarked on our rebranding locally in 2019, which has progressively expanded to more outlets nationwide, both in East and West Malaysia,” he said.  For the record, there are eight DUNKIN’ outlets in Kota Kinabalu, with four being in KKIA airport itself including the newest outlet. With a seating capacity for 88 customers, the new outlet will not only feature its signature  Iced Coffee and Iced Caramel Macchiato, but will also be the first outlet to offer a more crafted experience by serving up fresh brews through an array of new beverages. These include the Frozen Espresso and Frozen Flavoured Lattes featuring irresistible flavours such as Salted Caramel and Hazelnut Mocha, among many others. Peter said while DUNKIN’ has taken a coffee-forward direction it has still maintained its iconic and timeless donuts at the core and heart of the brand’s heritage. In this regard, DUNKIN’ fans can look forward to refreshing new donut flavours leading up to the upcoming Ramadhan and Hari Raya season, including Kurma Choco-cake, Ketupat, and Bintang Cerra, which comes as part of DUNKIN’s Ramadhan Raya Bersama initiative. In conjunction with its new opening in KKIA, DUNKIN’ is offering an irresistible deal which will allow anyone to experience DUNKIN’s variety of specialty coffee. Morning risers can look forward to enjoy the Morning Coffee specials such as hot or iced coffee, Americano or latte at just half the price, as soon as the store opens until till 11:59am. Those who prefer their caffeine fix later in the day can re-energise through the Handcrafted Espresso specials, including its Iced Caramel Macchiato, Iced Mocha Latte and Iced Salted Caramel Latte.

Both offers are valid from Mar 16 to 20 at all DUNKIN’ outlets in Malaysia, including the newest outlet at KKIA.
