Baskin-Robbins To Donate Portion Of Proceeds From Ice Cream Scoops Sold On Veterans Day

To The USO In Honor Of Troops and Military Families

Special Flavor of the Month First Class Camouflage and Camouflage Waffle Cone will celebrate the military community throughout November

CANTON, Mass., Nov. 3, 2014 // PRNewswire // - On Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins, the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, will donate 10 cents from each ice cream scoop sold in its U.S. locations to the United Service Organizations (USO), in honor of U.S troops, military families and veterans.* Baskin-Robbins' support is part of the USO's "Every Moment Counts" campaign, which calls on Americans to honor and create special moments for troops and their families, who make daily sacrifices as they serve.

Baskin-Robbins will also celebrate the military community all month long with its November Flavor of the Month, First Class Camouflage, and with a special Camouflage Waffle Cone. First Class Camouflage features a delicious combination of Chocolate, Salty Caramel, and Cake-flavored ice creams and can be enjoyed in a cup or cone as well as in Baskin-Robbins' Camouflage Waffle Cone or Waffle Bowl, which are decorated green, brown and tan. Guests can also enjoy Baskin-Robbins' First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae, which includes OREO® cookie pieces, caramel praline topping, hot fudge and is topped off with whipped cream.

"We're excited to honor our military service members and veterans this November through our long-standing partnership with the USO, and hope our guests will join our efforts in supporting the USO on Veterans Day when we will make a donation for every scoop of ice cream sold in our U.S. restaurants to the organization," said Bill Mitchell, President, Baskin-Robbins U.S. and Canada, and Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins China, Japan and Korea, who previously served as a Captain in the U.S. Army. "We're also looking forward to introducing our November Flavor of the Month, First Class Camouflage, which celebrates our troops in a fun and unique way."

Baskin-Robbins is also committed to supporting the military community by offering a special veteran's incentive program for U.S. veterans seeking to open a Baskin-Robbins franchise in the U.S. As part of the program, Baskin-Robbins will waive the 20-year initial franchise fee of $25,000 and offer a zero percent royalty rate for the first two years and a reduced royalty rate for years three through five for qualified, honorably discharged U.S. veterans, making it easier for them to start their own business.**

Baskin-Robbins was founded in 1945 by ice cream enthusiasts and brothers-in-law Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins, who both served in the military during World War II. The brand has a long history of serving those who serve our country. In addition, The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation is committed to ensuring the safety of our neighborhoods through partnerships with organizations such as the USO.
