A police officer buying a coffee at a Rhode Island Dunkin’ Donuts says that the employee serving him seemed “somewhat rude and appeared as though they did not want to serve the officer.” He later discovers that the employee had written “#blacklivesmatter” on the cup. Police union:
The negativity displayed by the #Blacklivesmatter organization towards police across this nation is creating a hostile environment that is not resolving any problems or issues, but making it worse for our communities. They are doing this by increasing tensions amongst police and the people they serve.
The franchise owner has apologized to the police officer on behalf of Dunkin’ Donuts, and he has counseled the employee about her behavior.
Dunkin Donuts announces that it will launch its croissant doughnut starting in early November. It will be available for a limited time only and sell for $2.49, or more than twice its standard doughnut. When asked to compare the croissant doughnut and the Cronut , Dunkin’s Executive Chef Jeff Miller responded:
I’ve tried the product that you mention. As the executive chef of Dunkin’, I like ours better.
