Their slogan is "America Runs On Dunkin" and it appears that Eastern Carolina's economy may be running on Dunkin Donuts too.
The New England based donut and coffee shop plans to open 12 stores in Eastern Carolina and create nearly 400 jobs.
Donut dunkers and coffee drinkers packed the newest location in east today along Neuse Boulevard in New Bern.
Officials say the location will employ more than 30 people.
The job creation adds to the more than 30 workers already employed at the highway 70 location which opened last summer.
Officials say local contractors were used in both New Bern projects. A location in Morehead City is next on the list.
