Dunkin' Donuts also offers a full lineup of bakery sandwiches to help keep guests running all day long. Earlier this year the brand unveiled two varieties of chicken sandwiches, Bacon Ranch and Barbecue, made with a tender, juicy, lightly-breaded chicken breast topped with cheddar cheese and served on a French roll. Dunkin' Donuts' sandwich selection also 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.
