Dunkin’ Donuts In ‘Private Test’ of Delivery Service

Dunkin’ Donuts may be coming your way—via delivery—next year.

“Delivery is clearly a big opportunity,” Dunkin’ Brands Chairman and CEO Nigel Travis told CNBC’s “On the Money” in an interview.

“We’re now developing mobile ordering. We’re doing a private test. We’ll move to a more public test later this year,” said Travis. “We’ll probably launch mobile ordering sometime next year.”

The move comes as several fast food stores experiment with food delivery, including rivals Starbucks, McDonald’s, Chipotle and Taco Bell.

Last year, Dunkin’ posted disappointing sales, amid stiff competition among restaurant chains and an environment where consumers are still struggling economically.
