We really can have everything with the push of a button.
On Monday, coffee and doughnuts giant Dunkin’ announced that it had launched a Dunkin’ Delivers service in New York City through Seamless, a branch of Grubhub, allowing Dunkin’ fans to order iced coffee, doughnuts, and breakfast sandwiches from hundreds of Dunkin’ locations around NYC. It marked the beginning of the service’s nationwide Dunkin’ rollout, which will fully extend to Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, and other markets in the upcoming months.
But Dunkin’s roots weren’t completely left out. While complete city coverage in Boston will launch later this year, the Canton-based chain is currently testing its Grubhub delivery capabilities in the Boston area from five Dunkin’ locations: 443 Tremont St. in Lower Roxbury, 180 Canal St. in the West End, 209 N. Harvard St. in Lower Allston, 265 Franklin St. in the Financial District, and 8 Park Plaza in the Bay Village.
A quick search on the Grubhub app on Wednesday afternoon showed three Dunkin’ locations that were able to deliver to Boston.com’s downtown office, with a wait time of 30 to 45 minutes and a $2.99 delivery fee. The full menu is available — everything from hash browns and iced macchiatos to a double sausage breakfast sandwich or a dozen doughnuts. Bottled drinks are available for delivery, as well as packaged coffee and K-Cup pods for Keurig brewing machines. There is currently no minimum dollar amount required for delivery.
Dunkin’ is already available on DoorDash, another food delivery service, but this is the first time the chain has partnered with Grubhub.
“Keeping Americans energized with the coffee and food they crave, wherever and whenever they want, is what our guests expect from Dunkin’,” Stephanie Meltzer-Paul, vice president of digital and loyalty marketing for Dunkin’ U.S., said in a press release. “By partnering with Grubhub, Dunkin’ will be there for more people even when they’re staying at home or are busy at work.”
