While Foxboro residents were enjoying Founder’s Day, earlier this month another big event was brewing at 127 Main St., where a Baskin-Robbins outlet officially opened inside of the Dunkin’ Donuts.
The grand opening included a ribbon-cutting ceremony, free kid’s scoops with the purchase of a beverage, appearances by Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin’ Donuts’ mascots, and a $1,000 check presentation to the MOMS Club of Foxboro.
“It’s great to have Baskin-Robbins back in Foxboro,” said town manager Bill Keegan, who participated the ribbon-cutting festivities along with fire chief Roger Hatfield and selectmen Chris Mitchell, James DeVellis and Leah Gibson.
Jason Maceda, senior vice president of Baskin-Robbins U.S and Canada was on hand as well.
“Baskin-Robbins is a beloved brand and we’re so excited to bring it back to Foxboro so that our local community can enjoy our wide variety of ice cream flavors and other frozen treats.” Maceda said
George Primpas, one of the owners of the new multi-brand Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins store, presented the MOMS Club of Foxboro with a $1,000 donation to help keep the local organization running.
“We chose the MOMS Club of Foxboro because it is such a vital organization that provides support to local families and moms,” Primpas explained.
MOMS Club president Erica DuPlessis accepted the check, saying that all proceeds go back to support programs for families in Foxboro, as well as local community organizations like Founder’s Day, Foxboro Recreation, and the Foxborough Cares 5K.
In keeping with the festive theme, children and families enjoyed Baskin-Robbins ice cream and other samples at the event and throughout the remainder of the day.
