Dunkin' Donuts has a new doughnut-delivery program, and it's launching for the first time in Dallas. That's us! The Massachusetts doughnut chain has partnered with on-demand delivery service DoorDash to test "Dunkin' Delivery" service here.
Dallas-area residents can use DoorDash to order Dunkin' Donuts products — coffee, doughnuts, sandwiches — from 7 am-10 pm. Everything is delivered in less than 45 minutes.
The stores currently offering delivery are in Addison, Plano, Carrollton, Preston Hollow, Frisco, Richardson, and the one by the University of Texas at Dallas. Delivery extends within five miles of each store. A Dunkin' Donuts rep says that more stores in the Dallas area will eventually be added.
There's also a test being done via a smartphone app in Portland, Maine. Following Dallas, Dunkin' Donuts will partner with DoorDash to offer delivery service in Atlanta; Chicago; Los Angeles; and Washington, D.C. in the coming weeks.
Dunkin' Donuts VP Scott Hudler says that the company has been receiving requests for delivery from customers for some time. "We are excited to launch this new test, and we will continue to evaluate a possible national rollout in the future," he says.
DoorDash is a Silicon Valley-based technology startup that offers delivery in 21 metropolitan markets across more than 250 cities in the U.S. and Canada. "As DoorDash continues to expand to more markets, we're excited to be adding Dunkin Donuts to our growing roster of top-tier national partners," CEO Tony Xu says.
DoorDash currently has about 260 Dallas restaurants on its list, primarily small, independently owned places, from Resto Gastro Bistro at Trinity Groves to The Rustic in Uptown. Dunkin Donuts doesn't show up on the list if it is outside your delivery area, but you can find it by visiting www.doordash.com/dunkin/.
