Dunkin’ Donuts Launches Mobile Payment App

What could possibly go better with a cup of coffee than a donut?

Apparently, that’s what the folks at Dunkin’ Donuts think too. Following the news last week that Starbucks will integrate Square for mobile payments at 7,000 of its coffee shops around the country, Dunkin’ Donuts is following a similar course.

On Thursday, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its first-ever mobile application for payment and gifting for iPhone, iPod touch and Android smartphones.

With the new Dunkin’ App, paying for food, beverages, and merchandise at Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants throughout the U.S. is as simple and speedy as scanning your smartphone using a mobile Dunkin’ Donuts Card in-store or at the drive-thru.

The Dunkin’ App is available for free from the App Store and Google Play Store.

“Dunkin’ Donuts is committed to developing and delivering technology that supports our growth and distinguishes our brand for offering the very best guest experience,” said Nigel Travis, Dunkin’ Brands CEO and Dunkin’ Donuts President. “Today’s launch of the new Dunkin’ Mobile App is an exciting and important day for both Dunkin’ Donuts’ guests and our franchisees. This is a clear example of our determination to invest in technologies that help us exceed our guests’ expectations and enable our franchisees to run their restaurants as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
