Force Dunkin’ Donuts Staff Out Into the Cold With Curbside Pickup

December 13, 2016

The chain is currently testing it in Boston

Dunkin’ Donuts is apparently doing its best to reduce the grinding, loathsome pain of walking 20 feet across a snowy parking lot: The Northeastern coffee and doughnut giant is testing curbside pickup.

CBS Boston reports that it’s happening at the East Central store in Natick, 10 miles west of Boston, and the chain is considering a broader nationwide rollout. How does it work? Simple: A Dunkin’ employee will be forced out into the icy cold, presumably wearing only a lurid polo shirt, to deliver orders to people in their cars.
