"Extra Sugar" Parody

The was an amusing comment from the parody news article:
Representatives from New Jersey’s Department of Consumer Affairs also criticized Dunkin’ Donuts for “attempting to avoid paying additional licensing fees by hiding these costly off-menu items in the Nutritional Facts section of their websites, where all but discerning consumers are not likely to visit.”

Doesn't seem too farfetched from some of the allegations Dunkin' has used against their franchisees to profit from their terminations for the benefit of Dunkin's own refranchising accounts.

Only in New Jersey are people this kinky

ABC-TV channel 7 is reporting that Ms. Redmond was such a hard worker that she raced from serving customers at the drive thru to serving them in the parking lot.

According to the report, she often did not even have time to take off her Dunkin apron.

There must be a website somewhere for people into doing the nasty while wearing a Dunkin Donuts uniform.

I will never think of Fred The Baker in the same way. What was he really doing leaving the house at all hours?

Too bad....

At this point even bad press is good press to get customers into at least Dunkin' Donuts. I wish this would have happened at a Quiznos store because any advertisement is better than no advertisement.

Dunkin / Subway co-branding opportunity

This franchisee should co-brand with ex-Subway sandwich franchisee "Cousin Vinny."

Wrong franchise

She picked the wrong franchise. Not only was she at the one place more likely to be swarming with cops than the police station, but IN-N-Out Burger is much better named for such an activity.

neah, Redmond picked it right...

Considering how sleazy Dunkin' management is, I'd say she picked the right franchise to whore out her services thru.

Come on, Paul Towhig looks like the perfect crackhead pimp.

I wonder how that tip cup - you know, the one that says, "Gratuities For Exceptional Service!" - was ultimately distributed between the other crew members since Redmond was technically doing all the head servitude work.

Adam & Eve/Dunkin/Baskins Tribrand

A franchising trifecta.

Franchisee Leader At The Helm Of DD Brothel

The franchise owner of the Rockaway, NJ Dunkin' brothel was 1 of the 36 franchisees invited to last week's Nasdaq listing event. I suppose Dunkin's prostitution business is rolled up in their "other" revenues. However, it is not clear if the Dunkin' franchisee paid all related payroll taxes related to the gross wages earned by the employee during her night shift hours.

The franchisee should be recognized for his ability to service Dunkin' customers through multiple channels.

Payroll taxes? What about the royalties?

Was it a test market? Dunkin Beaver?

Again, its about the workplace culture we create

I get angry when staff damage the reputation of anyone’s business. Too often some of the most disgusting and damaging acts are celebrated or turned into some low level of comic relief in social media.

Franchisees find it difficult to police everything staff do but it comes down to setting a hard and fast standard. In Aus we have a rigorous standard placed on employers to protect staff from unfair treatment but the door is open for instant dismissal when a staff member does anything that can be effectively argued has ‘damaged the business’.  This can come down to anything that damages the reputation of the business but it can also be used to protect employers from such things as wanton damage to equipment etc.

Franchisees have to fire people who cross the line no matter how short-staffed or difficult the situation and let it be known that any such behaviours will not be tolerated for one second. I’ve harped many times about the culture we create in small business and this is as integral to a high performance culture as recognising effort and attitude.  It starts by being open when you hire people and it does not matter how staff perform otherwise.  Any better suggestions?

Taking Customer Satisfaction to new Heights

Leave it to Dunkin to take customer satisfaction to new heights.

Would you like to cream with your coffee?
