A new Dunkin’ without the “Donuts” is set to arrive in Quincy Point, according to The Patriot Ledger.

Quincy’s zoning board approved a request from the franchise owners to knock down former burger joint Wild Willy’s on Route 3A and build a 2,100-square-foot structure, which will include the Dunkin’ location and another storefront.

The store will be one of a few across the country to test a new branding initiative presenting the chain as a coffee destination. This location will be the first to offer different drive-thru options targeting commuters into Boston, according to the report. There will be four lanes for ordering converging at one pickup window: one with a microphone for ordering and a window for paying, two with touch-screens for ordering and paying by card, and one for those who already ordered and paid online.

“This Dunkin’ Donuts facility is the first of its kind,” attorney Rob Fleming told the zoning board, according to the Ledger.

The owners, who also own a Dunkin’ Donuts a few minutes away, still need to receive a license from the city before opening up shop.
