CANTON, Mass., June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- There is now an exciting new reason to cross the road to Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, as the brand today officially unveiled two new chicken sandwiches as additions to its lineup of bakery sandwiches. The Barbecue Chicken and Bacon Ranch Chicken Sandwiches are made with a tender, juicy, lightly-breaded chicken breast topped with cheddar cheese, barbecue or ranch sauce and served on a French roll.
According to John Costello, President, Global Marketing and Innovation at Dunkin' Brands, the introduction of chicken sandwiches is a significant step in the brand's commitment to all-day menu items. "The launch of our bakery sandwiches last year has helped make Dunkin' Donuts a destination of choice for afternoon and evening guests who are on the go and looking for a quick bite to eat. Continuing to provide a wide variety of all-day menu options is extremely important as we expand and cater to more and more busy people who are snacking more frequently throughout a clockless day," he said. "We're excited to bring chicken, one of the most popular choices for lunch, to our menu in a uniquely Dunkin' way, and to expand the breadth of our guests' all-day choices."
Dunkin' Donuts' new chicken sandwiches join the current bakery sandwich lineup that includes Ham & Cheese, Turkey, Cheddar & Bacon, Chicken Salad, and Tuna Salad sandwiches, available on a French roll, bagel, or croissant, as well as Chicken Salad and Tuna Salad Wraps. All bakery sandwiches are served oven-toasted and made-to-order all day long at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants nationwide.
For a perfect accompaniment to Dunkin' Donuts' new chicken sandwiches, Dunkin' Donuts restaurants nationwide serve freshly-brewed Iced Tea. A crisp, cold and convenient beverage choice any time of day, Dunkin' Donuts' delicious Iced Tea is made-to-order, unsweetened or sweetened, with or without a fresh lemon.
