Dunkin’ has shared some of the latest ways it is continuing its commitment to coffee sustainability in 2021, furthering ongoing efforts to make a meaningful difference in the lives and livelihoods of coffee farmers and producers.
As well as adding Extra Charged Coffee to its menu, Dunkin is also introducing two new hot coffees to kick off the New Year.
The fabled holiday flavour comes to life at Dunkin’ with the launch of the new Sugarplum Macchiato this December.
The coffee shop consolidation game continues following the 30 October news that Inspire Brands is acquiring Dunkin’ Brands Group, the parent company of Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins. While it may be the last coffee brand acquisition we see this year, it certainly won’t be “the last” — given the current global environment, I am sure we will see more M&As in the not-so-distant future.
Dunkin’ is making its pumpkin flavoured coffee, espresso and spiced drinks available from 19 August.
New York City, where I live, entered Phase 1 of its reopening on 8 June — one of the last cities in the United States (and possibly globally) to do so. Our Phase 1 includes construction, manufacturing, wholesale, and curbside pick-up for retail, but not foodservice. Within foodservice, it is still take-out (pick up or delivery) only but more operators are beginning to reopen weekly.
Dunkin’ franchisees are seeking to hire up to 25,000 new restaurant employees at Dunkin’ locations, from front-counter to restaurant management, creating immediate jobs that the company says will offer long-term education benefits and key career skills for people across the US.
