Dunkin' Donuts Gets Nutty with Almond Milk Alternative

Dunkin’ Donuts introduced almond milk to its menu as a new non-dairy alternative to milk and cream for guests to add to their coffee. Through a new partnership with Blue Diamond Growers, a leading almond company, select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide will offer Vanilla Almond Breeze Almondmilk as an addition to hot or iced coffee and lattes. Guests can visit the Dunkin’ website and search for a special “AM” symbol indicating locations offering Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk.

Dunkin' Continues CA Growth in Modesto, Santa Monica

Dunkin’ Donuts is giving California a taste of the iconic brand’s high-quality products and fast speed of service with its first full expression locations on the West Coast, which are now open in Modesto and Santa Monica. The restaurants offer the full Dunkin’ Donuts menu of beverages, sandwiches, and baked goods, along with inviting restaurant environments, comfortable seating areas and free WiFi for guests.

West Expansion in Full Swing, Dunkin' Rolls Out Dark Roast

As Dunkin’ Donuts continues its national, westward expansion, the brand is unveiling a new Rainforest Alliance Certified Dark Roast Coffee. The new Dark Roast, developed by Dunkin’ Donuts’ Coffee Excellence team over the past several years, uses a unique roasting process to bring out key characteristics of different beans, creating a bold flavor and smooth finish associated with Dunkin’ Donuts’ Original Blend, but without the bitterness typically associated with most dark roast coffees. 

Hold the Bread

The quick-service industry isn’t quite what it used to be. Gone are the days when a simple roll or slices of white bread sufficed as carriers for a burger or sandwich.

These days, with innovation required in an increasingly competitive field, sandwich carriers ranging from doughnuts and lettuce to ramen noodles and fried chicken are combining creativity with novelty to develop tasty twists on tradition.

Pumpkin Season Kicks Off at Dunkin' Donuts

September is prime pumpkin season at Dunkin’ Donuts. Leading the autumn array are new Pumpkin Crème Brulee Coffee and Lattes, which are available hot or iced, featuring the flavors of pumpkin and vanilla blended together. Dunkin’ Donuts is also bringing back a full fall lineup of pumpkin beverages and baked goods, which begins rolling into restaurants today, and all products will be available for a limited time by September 1.

Coffee Concepts Can Target Lunch Guests with Demographic Data

First, Taco Bell turned the burrito on its side with the launch of a new breakfast menu, and now, traditional morning daypart chains Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks are looking to extend their bite to the much-larger lunch slice. Although Dunkin’ has been after the coffee-drinking market that makes up the largest piece of Starbucks’ revenue, and Starbucks for years has served pre-made or heat-and-eat fare, both brands are looking to increase food sales revenue and chip away at Panera Bread’s market share.

Breakfast Wars Reverse

As breakfast wars rage on, some morning-focused operators are expanding the battle into the afternoon daypart.
Breakfast quick service restaurants add new food options for later snacking.
Starbucks is trying to boost business in later dayparts with food items like flatbreads.

Earlier this year, research firm The NPD Group confirmed what many in the quick-service industry have known for years: The breakfast wars are real, and there’s more at stake then a Waffle Taco or a better cup of coffee. NPD’s “A Look into the Future of Foodservice” report found that the quick-service segment showed the strongest increase in breakfast visits of all restaurant segments, with a 4 percent increase in 2013 over 2012.
