Dunkin’ Once Again Giving Away Donuts on Veterans Day

INDUSTRY NEWS NOVEMBER 5, 2019 Share on FacebookTweetShare on LinkedInForward
Dunkin’ is once again celebrating Veterans Day with a sweet salute to the brave men and women of the armed forces. On Monday, November 11, veterans and active duty military are invited to participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide for a free donut of their choice, no purchase necessary. The return of the Veterans Day donut special is part of Dunkin’s long-standing commitment to supporting active military and veterans.

In addition to a free donut of their choice, the first 50 veterans and active military at participating Dunkin’ restaurants on November 11 will also receive a thank you card written by members of the community from A Million Thanks. A Million Thanks is a nonprofit organization that supports active, reserve and veteran military by sending millions of letters of thanks and encouragement directly to service members. Since its inception in 2004, A Million Thanks has delivered over 9.8 million cards to U.S. troops stationed around the world.

On Veterans Day, Dunkin’ fans will have the opportunity to add their own custom message to digital cards featuring words of thanks and encouragement to active duty military on Dunkin’s Instagram page on Veterans Day. Favorite messages will be selected by Dunkin’ and printed and mailed to active military members through A Million Thanks. In celebration of the new partnership Dunkin’ is donating $10,000 to A Million Thanks for ongoing support of their mission.

“We’re thrilled to partner with A Million Thanks and continue Dunkin’s longstanding history of supporting the brave men and women of our military,” says Tom Manchester, Dunkin’ Brands Senior Vice President of Integrated Marketing. “We are honored to serve veterans and active duty military at Dunkin’ locations nationwide and at our military locations on bases around the world. Alongside our franchisees, some of which are veterans themselves, we look forward to welcoming members of our armed forces to Dunkin’ this Veterans Day and every day.”

Dunkin’ is also shining the spotlight on George Hart, retired U.S. Army Major and Dunkin’ franchisee, this Veterans Day in the latest Dunkin’ Doc, Dunkin’s digital series profiling standout Dunkin’ fans, employees and franchise owners. The video profiles George and his incredible goal of putting a Dunkin’ on every military base in the country. With 11 Dunkin’ locations open now and six more set to open within the next year, George is on a mission to hit all 44 U.S. bases. This Dunkin’ Doc shares George’s journey, and how Dunkin’ has been the inspiration to build such a meaningful community on bases across the country. The Dunkin’ Doc is available to watch on the Dunkin’ Blog here.

Dunkin’s Veterans Day initiatives are part of the brand’s year-round commitment to supporting the U.S. armed forces. Through the Dunkin’ Coffee for Our Troops program, the company has donated more than 300,000 pounds of coffee to troops deployed overseas. Under the program, each week the company sends a case of coffee to deployed troops based on recommendations from friends, family members or troops themselves. Since 2003, the brand has sent 10 cases of coffee each week.

McDonald’s Fires CEO Steve Easterbrook Over Relationship With Employee
Head of U.S. business is named chief executive as burger giant fights weak domestic sales

Steve Easterbrook had been chief executive since 2015.
By Heather Haddon
Updated Nov. 3, 2019 6:41 pm ET
McDonald’s Corp. said it had fired Chief Executive Steve Easterbrook because of his consensual relationship with an employee, the latest challenge for the company as it races to keep up with changes reverberating throughout the food industry.

The burger giant said Sunday that its board voted Friday to terminate Mr. Easterbrook after investigating his relationship with the unnamed employee. Mr. Easterbrook resigned from McDonald’s board as well. He said in an email to McDonald’s employees on Sunday that he had violated company policy on personal conduct.

“This was a mistake,” Mr. Easterbrook said in the email. “Given the values of the company, I agree with the board that it is time for me to move on.” Mr. Easterbrook said he is grateful for his time at the company and has declined to comment further, according to a representative.

The company wouldn’t provide more details on the relationship.

McDonald’s said Mr. Easterbrook would be replaced immediately by USA President Chris Kempczinski, 51.

Mr. Easterbrook, 52 years old, has been chief executive since March 2015. During his tenure, the company’s shares nearly doubled in value but traffic to U.S. restaurants continues to stagnate. McDonald’s is reckoning with challenges reverberating throughout the food industry from meat producers to supermarkets as consumers switch to products that they see as more healthful and big companies sacrifice profit for technological upgrades and delivery.

McDonald’s has invested in updating its sandwiches and renovating its restaurants to keep up with those changes, but paid a price in profits. And U.S. franchisees have balked at mandated investments in digital-ordering kiosks and new menu items like fresh-beef burgers. Franchisees started an independent association last year to push back against some of Mr. Easterbrook’s changes.

Mr. Easterbrook said earlier this year that he and other top executives, including Mr. Kempczinski, had been talking to franchisees in light of their concerns, and had pushed back the timeline for owners making some capital investments as a result.

“Wouldn’t life be great if everyone was happy? Of course,” Mr. Easterbrook told investors. “Am I fundamentally concerned that it will derail us from the shared vision that we have? No, not at all.”

Mr. Easterbrook also rolled back offerings including premium burgers and parts of an all-day breakfast menu after they slowed down restaurant operations. Wait-times at McDonald’s drive-throughs have climbed in recent years as the company’s menu became increasingly complex.

Mr. Kempczinski, who helped implement many of the recent changes as head of U.S. operations, said he will maintain Mr. Easterbrook’s focus on technology as CEO and believes the company’s investments will pay off.

“There isn’t going to be some radical, strategic shift. The plan is working,” Mr. Kempczinski said in an interview on Sunday.

Mr. Kempczinski said investors should feel confident in the succession and that he intends to listen to consumers. He also said he looked forward to continuing to discuss concerns with franchisees. “It’s something we need to solve together,” said Mr. Kempczinski, who will also join McDonald’s board.

McDonald’s said Joe Erlinger, most recently president of international operated markets, is succeeding Mr. Kempczinski to oversee McDonald’s roughly 14,000 domestic restaurants.

McDonald’s shares, up 9% this year, have trailed the broader S&P index tracking restaurants in that period, including other fast-food peers such as Wendy’s Co. and Restaurant Brands International Inc.

McDonald’s faces more challenges at the U.S. restaurants that drives its sales. Labor organizers and some lawmakers have called on the company to address workplace harassment issues and raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour.

McDonald’s this year strengthened workplace training and protocol for reporting potential employee misconduct. Mr. Kempczinski said the company had a responsibility to address workplace well-being. The company said this year that it would stop lobbying against federal minimum wage increases, and that it recognizes the rights of its employees to join labor organizations.

The company said details of Messrs. Kempczinski’s and Easterbrook’s pay would be disclosed in a filing by Tuesday.

Mr. Easterbrook, who is divorced, had a long career at McDonald’s. Before becoming CEO, he worked as head of the company’s U.K. business, which he helped return to growth by modernizing its restaurants, revamping the menu and portraying McDonald’s as environmentally friendly—tactics he later employed at the company more broadly. Mr. Easterbrook, who was born in Watford, England, was the second non-American to lead the company, after the late Charlie Bell of Australia.

Mr. Easterbrook left McDonald’s in 2011 to become CEO of Britain’s PizzaExpress Ltd. and then Japanese-style noodle bar chain Wagamama Ltd. Two years later he returned, eventually becoming McDonald’s global chief brand officer.

Within months of becoming CEO, he enacted several changes, including committing to switch to cage-free eggs, antibiotic-free chicken and hormone-free milk; raising workers’ pay above minimum wage and giving different geographic markets more control over the menu.

His pay as CEO rose with McDonald’s share price, which closed Friday at $194. His compensation peaked in 2017 at a total of $21.8 million including $9.1 million in incentive-based pay. He received $15.9 million in total compensation last year. He also sits on the board of Walmart Inc

Do you guys know what scarily good means? Well, Granger’s Grille in Delray Beach is scarily good.

Real quick story…

Hole in the wall with scarily good American-Style food located at 215 Northeast 6th Avenue, Delray Beach after 23 years was forced to move- because the landlord sold the building it was in. A few months later (January, 2017) the “former” hole in the wall re-opened 3-times larger at 892 Southeast 5th Avenue, Delray Beach serving the same scarily good American-Style food!

All Jeff Eats can tell you guys, is that if you’re into absolutely dynamite burgers/ wings/ bbq ribs/ fried zucchini/ onion rings/ French fries/ tuna salad/ chili/ fried chicken/ onion soup/ meatloaf so-on and so forth, portions that could choke a horse, super reasonable prices and a staff that can’t do enough for you- Granger’s Grille is a must try for you!

***** Granger’s Bar & Grill, 215 NE 6th Avenue, Delray Beach Florida (561) 276-7881.

Granger’s is a 38 seat bar-grill located on Federal Highway. The joint has something like 10 seats at the bar and a handful of booths and tables…one waitress-one busgirl-3 in the kitchen and that’s the whole shooting match. By the way, the waitress and busgirl are also the bartenders. The bathrooms are out-houses in the parking lot.

Granger’s food is absolutely great. Appetizers, burgers, salads, main dishes everything is delicious. How that little kitchen bangs out so much delicious food is beyond me, but in the 30-40 times that I have eaten at Granger’s everything was right on the money.

I am telling you, that this little joint is a MUST for you. Wear tee shirt/shorts so you don’t look stupid. The joint is open Monday-Saturday for lunch and dinner. The prices are also dirt cheap and if you are there on a Saturday Night you have to try the brick of meatloaf that is one of this joint’s specialities.

From the outside, Granger’s looks like a D U M P. Try it, you will love it.
