The bakery artists formerly known as Dunkin' Donuts open its 6th Twin Cities location on Thursday.

If you didn't know, Dunkin' Donuts decided to change its name in September, so it's now known just as Dunkin'.

The "Donuts" will officially be dropped from its thousands of restaurants across the U.S. starting January, but its latest Twin Cities location, in Richfield, has already assumed the new name.

The Dunkin' at 6529 Penn Ave. S. opened its doors on Thursday, while the Richfield Chamber of Commerce is holding an official grand opening event on the morning of Friday, Nov. 30.

Dunkin' Donuts is undergoing a revival in Minnesota, having disappeared entirely for almost a decade in the state after the lore remaining Dunkies, in Austin, closed in 2005.

It returned to the state when a new franchisee came forward in 2014, opening in Rochester, and the brand has since slowly but surely added more locations to its network.

In the Twin Cities, the new Richfield location joins standalone restaurants in Andover, Maple Grove, New Hope, Roseville and West St. Paul, along with locations at MSP Airport and Bloomington's Great Wolf Lodge.

The Star Tribune reports the Richfield location's layout is different from a typical Dunkin' shop, with donuts arranged on trays in a display rather than on racks behind the serving staff.
