Next level Dash In reflects retailer’s commitment to a quality food and beverage experience featuring real, wholesome ingredients cooked fresh on site, a reimagined store environment with indoor and outdoor dining, and a co-located, newly branded Splash In ECO Car Wash
Dash In, a Wills Group company, today unveiled its newest Dash In store in Loudoun County, Virginia. The all-new Dash In features a reimagined store experience and new menu. The menu reinforces Dash In’s commitment to offering wholesome food made on site, using simple, fresh ingredients. The first of its kind for Dash In, the Loudoun County location introduces a store experience that invites guests to linger, with the all-new store featuring both in-store seating and an outdoor patio. The 5,600 square-foot store, located at Gateway Village, 24755 Gum Spring Road in Chantilly, Virginia, features 17 fueling positions and a newly branded Splash In ECO Car Wash.
“The new Dash In is a result of a five-year journey throughout which we worked together across the Wills Group to completely reimagine the store experience for our guests,” said Wills Group President and COO Julian B. (Blackie) Wills. “Today’s opening demonstrates our collective commitment to innovation across Dash In, with our new menu featuring a variety of items made fresh in the store and a renewed Dash In brand that debuts in Loudoun County and will continue to roll out in the coming months across the Mid-Atlantic region. We are excited to introduce the new Dash In experience – and all of its innovative features – to the Loudoun County community.”
Reimagined Design Created to Deliver an Elevated Customer Experience
The newest Dash In location presents a distinct environment featuring natural wood exterior finishes, polished concrete floors, and excellent line of sight throughout the store. Dash In’s open kitchen remains at the center of the store experience, flanked by a beverage wall on one side featuring Dash In’s bean-to-cup coffee, a new line of refreshing beverages, and unique blended beverage offerings as part of Dash In’s craft beverage wall. A beer cave and wine selections are featured on the other side of the central kitchen location. The store was designed to foster transparency and openness throughout the guest experience alongside its fresh-made food offerings.
Renewed Brand Identity Unveiled for Dash In and Splash In ECO Car Wash at Loudoun County Location
Today, Dash In also unveiled the next step in its ongoing commitment to evolving the Dash In brand, introducing renewed Dash In and Splash In ECO Car Wash visual identities at the Loudoun County location. The new Dash In brand features a script font, an updated warm color palette, and a map marker that makes clear Dash In’s commitment to being a destination where guests can receive a warm welcome and share in Dash In’s sense of adventure.
“The Dash In brand revealed today continues Dash In’s commitment to evolving our store experience. We believe our business thrives when we provide better experiences for our guests, each other, and our communities,” said Wills. “We’re not just in the convenience business, we’re in the business of caring for people, too.”
Dash In also introduced a renewed brand identity for Splash In ECO Car Wash at the Loudoun County location. The new 48-foot-long roll-over Splash In ECO Car Wash is open seven days a week and features four vacuum stations.
All-New Menu Debuts Dash In’s Signature Line of Burgers
