BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – With coffees of choice in hand, a crowd of well-wishers toasted the opening of Dunkin’ Donuts near Gate 3 at Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB).

“We’re all now running on Dunkin’,” toasted Airport Executive Director Greg Donovan, A.A.E. at the ribbon-cutting held today at the Florida coastal airport which serves the Central Florida region.

The closest commercial airport to Port Canaveral, Kennedy Space Center and 72 miles of sparkling beaches, the airport is keeping pace with the region’s growth with its multi-million dollar terminal transformation, new air traffic control tower and airfield upgrades on its three runways.

Metz Culinary Management operates the Dunkin’ Donuts franchise which includes a café’ sitting area for hungry travelers.  According to Rick Sell, a vice president with Metz, a full Dunkin’ Donuts menu is offered, including hot sandwiches, muffins, donuts and breakfast all day.

This is the second restaurant Metz has brought to MLB.  Lucky’s Craft Food & Drink opened in the terminal last year and has built a strong following of customers for its burgers and chicken sliders.
