December 06, 2016 // Franchising.com // CANTON, MA - With the holidays fast approaching, Dunkin’ Donuts is brewing a little extra joy for its guests and communities throughout the busy weeks ahead, serving up its signature hot coffee for free at select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants across the country. To celebrate the joy and warmth of the season, for one weekday between Monday, December 12 and Friday, December 23, nearly 30 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants somewhere in the U.S. will offer 500 guests a free medium hot coffee, served in the brand’s festive holiday cups featuring the word “JOY” (timing varies by location).
Additionally, in each market where a Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant is serving free coffee, the brand will donate $1,000 to a local organization aligned with the Joy in Childhood Foundation’s mission to bring joy to children whose lives are affected by health issues or hunger. Through the generosity of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins franchisees, employees, vendors and guests, the Joy in Childhood Foundation raises funds to support partnerships with children’s hospitals, food banks, and nonprofit organizations directly committed to serving sick and hungry kids. In total, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $15,000 in December as part of the “Brewing Joy” program.
The program begins in Chicago on December 12 with the first two Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants that will be “Brewing Joy.” Guests can follow the Dunkin’ Donuts blog for updates on participating restaurants and dates where guests can keep energized with a free medium hot coffee.
