ATLANTA, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dunkin' Brands, the parent company of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, named National DCP (NDCP) as the 2016 Partner of the Year at the 11th annual Dunkin' Brands Franchisee & Enterprise Awards Ceremony held recently in Boston. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, National DCP is the $2 billion supply chain management company that provides strategic sourcing, distribution and business services to Dunkin' Donuts franchisees.
"National DCP has been an outstanding partner to Dunkin' Brands since its inception as a national entity in 2012," said David Gill, Vice President, U.S. & Canada Supply Chain, Dunkin' Brands. "From driving down the cost of goods, improving perfect order metrics and providing excellent support of Dunkin's promotional activities, NDCP played a key role in 2016 being a transformative year for our organization."
National DCP's partnership with Dunkin' Brands Supply Chain generated more than $25 million in cost savings to the Dunkin' Donuts system last year.

Service levels have continued to improve year-over-year, with new systems being implemented and new distribution centers coming online. NDCP was also able to generate close to $3 million in contributions from suppliers for the Joy in Childhood Foundation (formerly The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation).
