Dunkin’ Donuts, the coffee and baked goods chain, has a new, all-day Oven-Toasted menu. The new platform marks the most significant change to Dunkin’ Donuts product lineup since the company launched espresso-based beverages in 2003. The menu items should be available nationwide by spring.
The Oven-Toasted menu items include:
- Flatbread Sandwiches, made to be easy to hold and eat. These sandwiches, described as “hot and crispy,” are available in three classic flavors: Turkey, Cheddar & Bacon; Ham & Swiss; and Three Cheese (Monterey Jack, Cheddar and Swiss).
- Personal Pizzas, available in five-inch servings. Customers can choose from three varieties: Supreme (Italian sausage, pepperoni and green and red peppers); Pepperoni (mozzarella and diced pepperoni) and Cheese (asiago, mozzarella, parmesan and romano.)
- Hash Browns, lightly seasoned and served as bite-sized medallions. The special Hash Browns container was specifically designed to fit neatly into a car cupholder for portability.
New cooking ovens, using patented technologies, deliver the “Oven-Toasted” result. Bakery items such as muffins and croissants are also now served warm and lightly toasted upon request.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ says the new menu is in response to on-the-go, busy lifestyles and changing consumer eating habits and expectations.
“People will no longer accept being offered breakfast only in the mornings or sandwiches only in the afternoon,” says Will Kussell, President and Chief Brand Officer of Dunkin’ Donuts Worldwide. “Customers love Dunkin’ Donuts current menu items, and now they can enjoy more choices to keep them going any time of day without compromising on quality or taste. They want a full variety of morning and afternoon food and beverage offerings, served fast and fresh, whether it’s 8 a.m. or 8 p.m.”
