Dunkin' National Donut Day

Whether you hit the road, peace out or #DunkOut, head to Dunkin’ to grab your FREE donut with any beverage purchase to celebrate #NationalDonutDay, June 7th!

Posted by Dunkin' on Sunday, June 2, 2019


Dunk Out, America: Take A Break On National Donut Day With A Free Donut From Dunkin’
Dunkin’ calls on the country to take a pause with a free sweet treat on Friday, June 7

New survey results take a look at America’s donut preferences and perceptions

CANTON, Mass., May 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — From forgoing PTO to trying to do everything ASAP, Americans could use a little more time in their day to recharge and refresh. So for National Donut Day 2019, Dunkin’ is declaring that a day for donuts is a day for America by rallying everyone to “Dunk Out” with a donut and enjoy a little more “me time” during their day. To help people take a pause with the perfect treat for the holiday, on National Donut Day, Friday, June 7, Dunkin’ is offering guests a free classic donut of their choice with the purchase of any beverage.

Dunkin’s special offer to ring in the holiday is good all day on National Donut Day at participating locations while supplies last. Guests can enjoy classic donut favorites including Boston Kreme, Glazed, Glazed Chocolate, Strawberry Frosted with Sprinkles and more. Through the brand’s social channels, Dunkin’ will help fans enjoy some time in celebration and appreciation of donuts with special content, including an invitation on Facebook where fans can RSVP to make a commitment to #DunkOut and enjoy some down time on National Donut Day.

According to Dunkin’ U.S. Chief Marketing Officer Tony Weisman, “Donuts are part of the American story and hold a special place in our popular culture, so we believe a day for donuts is a day for America. This National Donut Day, we encourage Americans to take a moment to ‘Dunk Out,’ recharge and enjoy their favorite donut variety at Dunkin’.”

As America readies for its day for donuts and a chance to “Dunk Out,” Dunkin’ partnered with Toluna, a leading provider of on demand consumer insights, to conduct a survey of more than 1,000 Americans for a sweet look at the country’s current preferences for and perceptions of enjoying this favorite treat.

From what part of the day would people most like to Dunk Out, i.e. take a break, perhaps with a donut? Checking and answering emails tops the list, followed by watching the kids, personal finances and awkward small talk with colleagues.
With whom would you most want to share a donut? In a close donut decision, 34% selected their spouse or significant other, while 32% went for the munchkins by choosing children. Additionally, 11% actually said “it’s mine, all mine” and wouldn’t share a donut with anyone.
Donut whole? Is it ever okay to cut a donut in half, leaving part behind? In this cutting debate, exactly two-thirds (66%) of respondents said yes, sharing is caring.
They all can have toppings: Donuts (22%), pizza (19%) and ice cream (15%) topped the list as the favorite foods for Americans to post or see on Instagram.
No matter how you spell it, it’s still delicious. Fifty-seven percent (57%) say it’s spelled “donut,” and 43% say it’s “doughnut.”
National Donut Day was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June. Dunkin’ has been serving guests signature donuts for nearly 70 years. Dunkin’ is the #1 retailer of donuts in America, and sells more than 3.1 billion donuts and MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats annually worldwide.

Originally introduced in 1997, the Bib Gourmand category highlights restaurants that serve high-quality meals which include two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less. In addition to the exceptional restaurants distinguished by star awards, Michelin inspectors take great pride in finding hidden gems to complete the selection that are more widely accessible for diners, whatever their budget or craving.

As the trusted source for gastronomy lovers worldwide for more than 120 years, Michelin publishes 32 Guides annually in more than two dozen countries, including four Guides in the United States. The 2019 MICHELIN Guide California is the most recent global expansion, and this represents the first statewide or regional Guide in the United States.

“Our inspectors were very impressed by the diversity of cuisine and culinary trends that they have seen across the Bib Gourmand selection in California, and it’s great to see that many of these restaurants take advantage of the fantastic local produce available throughout the state,” said Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guides.

Building on and including the selection launched in San Francisco last year, California now includes 88 new Bib Gourmands that are indicated below, and available on www.michelinmedia.com. In addition, inspectors’ notes on each restaurant can also be found on the website.

The complete selection in the 2019 MICHELIN Guide California, including the Michelin stars, will be unveiled at a live Star Revelation event taking place in Huntington Beach on Monday June 3, 2019, and the Guide will be available for purchase from major booksellers in the U.S. starting June 6, 2019, for $19.95.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) announced today it’s dishing out up to one million dollars of free burritos through the rest of the professional basketball season.

Free throws. Free agent. Cutting away to get free. All of this means free burritos.

Each mention of “free” in the first half of each game results in up to 500 free burritos. Each mention of “free” in the second half results in up to 1000 free burritos. Viewers and Tweeters will need to be on the offense as the code will only be valid to the first 500 (in the first half) or 1000 (in the second half) mobile users to text the correct code to 888222.

This applies to all orders $10 or more ($200 max) via the Chipotle app, Chipotle.com and through DoorDash.

“We know that basketball fans are some of the most passionate fans in sports, so we’re putting even more, about one million dollars more, on the line by ‘freeting’ through these final games,” said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer of Chipotle. “Chipotle has never been easier to access and with Chipotle delivery, you never have to choose between basketball and burritos again.”

Conversation Restaurant Opens, Sparking A New Culinary Discourse In Downtown Seattle Dining

Conversation Restaurant Opens, Sparking A New Culinary Discourse In Downtown Seattle Dining

Thompson Seattle’s New Signature Restaurant Celebrates the Art of Human Connection

SEATTLE, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Thompson Seattle announced today the opening of its new signature restaurant, Conversation. Following an extensive redesign and rebranding of Scout PNW, which closed its doors in January 2019, Conversation showcases sleek new interiors along with a fresh and provocative culinary perspective on all-day dining.

Lamb En Croute at Conversation, Thompson Seattle.
Lamb En Croute at Conversation, Thompson Seattle.
The inviting restaurant just steps from Pike Place Market offers a sensory dining experience pairing a menu of worldly dishes with a welcoming setting curated to foster conversation—as its name suggests—and ignite a sense of community. Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, Conversation is helmed by Executive Chef Derek Simcik and Executive Pastry Chef Kate Sigel, who have both drawn from their eclectic backgrounds to develop experiential culinary offerings that spark conversation.

“We are incredibly proud to unveil our new signature restaurant Conversation,” said Thompson Seattle General Manager Amanda Parsons. “Our team has poured their hearts and souls into cultivating a dining experience where culinary excellence and authentic connections go hand-in-hand. Our goal is to create a space that encourages our guests to disconnect from their screens and reconnect with family and friends over thought-provoking and inspiring cuisine.”

A Provocative, Global Perspective on Pacific Northwest Cuisine
Inspired by Simcik’s international travels as a child, the menus at Conversation are a true reflection of foods he and his family enjoyed together while living abroad. While globally influenced, these dishes also celebrate the foremost ingredients of the surrounding Pacific Northwest region, including locally grown organic produce and sustainable seafood.

“I want our guests to get lost in the moment,” said Simcik. “The food is an important aspect of the experience, of course, but I really want to curate a welcoming atmosphere that will inspire our visitors to live in the moment and create new memories together over the dinner table.”

Showcasing an approachable mix of classic and modern preparation and cooking techniques is the Lamb en Croute, accompanied by spring peas, sunomono (Japanese cucumber salad), and crispy prosciutto. The Trout is another dish offering a contemporary take on a Seattle favorite – fish and chips. Utilizing the Northwest’s local bounty, freshwater brook trout is breaded with potato flakes, served atop a bed of potato purée and caramelized onion broth, and garnished with dots of smoked aioli and caper purée to create the essence of a tartar sauce. Simcik’s Stuffed Quail entrée is a spin on one of his traditional southern comfort foods. Glazed with a barbeque-spiced sauce, the quail is perched on a bed of beans, accompanied by cornbread crumbs and pickled stone fruit, a recipe inspired by Simcik’s mother’s baked beans.

Executive Pastry Chef Kate Sigel pioneers the dessert program at Conversation, creating edible works of art with a cleverly sweet perspective. Sigel’s confections hold a sense of thoughtfulness and nostalgia, both in flavor and appearance, and are intended to evoke a sense of discovery and delight. Desserts include a take on an Ice Cream Sandwich, a macaron shell filled with honey-roasted corn ice cream and a salted caramel center. The London Fog is a dessert that evolves as it’s consumed; a large puff of childhood favorite cotton candy is delivered to the table and doused with a vanilla bean milk to melt away the cotton candy “fog,” revealing earl gray mousse, lemon oat streusel and lemon ice cream underneath.

The cocktail program at Conversation, helmed by Bar Manager Joshua Haddock, features light-hearted original creations, artfully presented and smoothly balanced. Haddock takes inspiration from his favorite travels, books, and films to curate fresh yet unexpected crowd-pleasing cocktails that incite a sense of wonder and curiosity.

Eclectic, Intimate Design Tells a Timeless Tale of Seattle
Designed by Chicago-based Rebel House Design, Conversation is a welcoming mid-century modern-meets-contemporary minimalist space that harmoniously layers diverse furnishings to convey the distinctive story of Seattle, with most pieces custom-made for the restaurant. The inviting space feels as though it has been collected over time, referencing a style-forward living room dotted with vignettes of vintage pieces to create intimate seating arrangements for a residential feel.

Conversation employs a diverse selection of furniture from various time periods. Dining chairs designed by the great George Nakashima, who spent time in the 1940s making furniture and teaching woodworking in Seattle, are complemented by matte black velvet curved sofas inspired by the 70s style of Vladimir Kagan, imbuing a warm yet timeless appeal and aesthetic. Wild, local foliage throughout provides earthy pops of color from the concrete, dark steel, and black walnut structures, integrating life into the boldly revamped space. Bright brass accents in the form of chandeliers, warm sculptural leather lounge chairs and sage mohair banquettes lend luster to the natural rawness of the interior and add to the residential feel of the space.

Additional design features include an elegant zellige-tiled bar space, a new and adventurous take on the subway tile trend. These glazed black tiles provide nuances of drying ink and are handmade out of terracotta in Morocco, where their creation was born out of a 10th Century tile-making craft. At the center of it all is an architectural design anchor for Conversation: a dramatic, double-sided fireplace clad in custom fluted, warm walnut paneling and surrounded by cozy chairs and sofas, creating a warm, inviting setting for human connection in this one-of-a-kind dining destination.

Open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Conversation is a thoughtful new addition to this award-winning hotel in the heart of downtown Seattle.

BALTIMORE, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — MGH, a full-service restaurant marketing agency, today announced the results of a study that examined how influential a brand’s social media marketing can be when it comes to driving restaurant trial and customer loyalty.

The survey determined that nearly half (45%) of U.S. diners said they’ve tried a restaurant for the first time because of a social media post made by the establishment itself, while 21% claimed posts could be a deterrent. Further, 22% said a restaurant’s social post enticed them to return.

In February 2019, MGH conducted an online survey of 1,069 U.S. adults ages 18+ who dine in, order takeout or had food delivered from a restaurant at least once a month.

Other notable stats included:

89% of U.S. diners have a social media account.
62% of U.S. diners say they log on to their social media accounts several times per day.
