Dunkin’ K-Cup® Portion Packs to be Sold in Participating Restaurants Starting Summer 2011

By Nigel Travis, CEO, Dunkin' Brands and President, Dunkin' Donuts

From Facebook to Twitter to calls into our Customer Care line, one of the most common questions asked to Dunkin’ Donuts is, “Will Dunkin’ Donuts coffee ever be available in single-serve K-Cups?” Today, therefore, is a particularly exciting day for our brand, our franchisees and our guests, as we are proud to announce an agreement with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters to make Dunkin’ Donuts coffee available in single-serve K-Cup® portion packs, for use with Keurig Single-Cup Brewers, the leading single cup system in America.

Beginning this summer, Dunkin’ Donuts will offer 14-count boxes of Dunkin’ K-Cup® portion packs, sold exclusively at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the United States and Canada. Dunkin’ K-Cups, featuring the same great-tasting Dunkin’ Donuts ground coffee served inside our restaurants, will be available in five popular Dunkin’ Donuts flavors, including Original Blend, Dunkin’ Decaf®, French Vanilla, Hazelnut and Dunkin’ Dark®.

Whether you want to enjoy Dunkin' Donuts coffee at home or work, Dunkin’ K-Cup® portion packs will keep you running with a cup of our great-tasting coffee, without having to brew an entire pot. Keurig's innovative single cup brewing system makes it simple to brew the perfect cup of coffee, without having to grind beans, measure, handle filters or clean up. Just insert one of your Dunkin’ K-Cup® portion packs into the machine, place a mug under the spout, and with a touch of a button, your freshly-brewed Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is ready in less than a minute.

In addition to selling Dunkin’ K-Cup® portion packs, some Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants will, on occasion, offer select models of Keurig Single-Cup Brewing Systems for sale. For more information about all available Keurig Brewers, visit www.keurig.com.

On behalf of Dunkin’ Donuts and our franchisees, we are delighted to meet our guest's needs by pairing their favorite coffee with their favorite single-cup brewing system. And we will continue to seek new ways and offer new choices to keep people running with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, any time, day or night.
