In Celebration of Leap Day – 29 Reasons Why DD Fans Keep Us Running

By Jessica Gioglio, Public Relations and Social Media Manager

Happy Leap Day! As Leap Years do not come around often, we’re taking the extra day  to make a ‘leap’ of love and share 29 reasons why DD fans keep us running. You see, each and every day, DD fans surprise and delight us. From special Dunkin’ Donuts tattoos, to proudly proclaiming their love of iced coffee year round, or documenting that all-important Dunkin’ run on their wedding day, there’s a lot DD fans do that make us – and hopefully you too – smile. Enjoy!
