Why did Dunkin’ Brands decide to open locations in Colorado ?
Dunkin’ is committed to offering our consumers increased accessibility to the brand and we continue to focus on growth and development efforts outside of our core Northeast markets. Our goal is to add 1,000 net new restaurants in the U.S. by the end of 2020, with 90 percent of these net openings to be built outside of the Northeast, and much of this growth will take place in the western part of the country, including states such as Colorado.
Currently, there are 37 Dunkin’ and 25 Baskin-Robbins restaurants and nine multi-brand Dunkin’ / Baskin-Robbins locations open throughout Colorado.
What are some initiatives Dunkin’ is driving to advance women in business?
Dunkin’ Brands is committed to ensuring all of our employees are paid fairly for the work they produce. We conducted an internal analysis to validate pay equity across the organization, and in 2016 we made a public commitment to developing and paying women equally: we were one of the 100+ companies that signed the White House Equal Pay Pledge, and we are members of the Boston Women’s Workforce Council’s 100% Talent Compact.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s) serve as networks that increase cultural awareness, provide career development opportunities, and provide a conduit to our communities allowing us to demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusions. One of our ERG’s is wIN, our Women’s Integrated Network. The mission of wIN is to unite men and women at Dunkin’ Brands to empower and accelerate the development of women leaders, build community and resources to serve as a diverse sounding board for our global organization, and drive innovation that grows share of the women’s market. Dunkin’ Brands Board of Directors has two female members, and our leadership team includes a female CFO, CHRO and CCO. Dunkin’ Brands is also a member of Women’s Foodservice Forum.
Why did Dunkin’ join the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce?
A key to the brand’s continued success has, and always will be, our collaboration with our franchisees. As a 100% franchised brand, it is imperative that our owners develop and establish roots in their local communities. One of the ways in which we assist our owners in doing that, is by aligning and developing partnerships with local economic, professional and development groups such as the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce, so that our owners can further strengthen and forge those local ties.
What are some social and/or environmental projects Dunkin’ is currently or planning to implement?
Dunkin’ has an ongoing commitment both on the brand and franchisee sides to create positive and impactful initiatives for both customers and communities throughout the world by implementing the following environmental and social projects…
