Dunkin Ballantyne supports “The Relatives” at their annual fundraising event

The Relatives organization focuses on helping children and young adults in our community by giving them a safe place to stay and helping them transition to independence. They help at-risk children through “a safe place” and operate a short-term crisis assistance center.
Charlotte ranks 50th out of the 50 largest cities for upward mobility. The youth in our community has a worse chance of escaping poverty than at any other city in America. The Relatives guide youths in crisis towards stability and independence in the hope that they can make it out of poverty and become productive citizens or our community.
We believe in their mission and support financially through the delivery of courses at the on-ramp center, delivery of meals to the crisis assistance center, and donuts as an occasional treat.
We attended their annual Breakfast with the Relatives Fundraiser this past Tuesday. The inspiring one-hour event is The Relatives’ only fundraiser of the year.
The goal is to raise critical funds that are needed to continue providing the wide array of programs and services offered to youth and young adults who need safety, stability and a pathway to independence. We were proud to serve as Table Captains.
The event is part of our commitment to give back and to help enrich the lives of those in our community.

Ballantyne Dunkin Donuts honors first responders for 9/11 National Day of Service

Store owner David Knight (left), manager Christina Evans (right)

As the effects of Hurricane Florence began to fade from the Charlotte area, the Dunkin Donuts stores in Ballantyne and Tega Cay partnered with Bank of America on its 9/11 National Day of Service initiative.

The National Day of Service was established to honor the victims and heroes of  9/11 and to rekindle the spirit of unity and compassion that followed the attacks. We here at the Ballantyne Dunkin Donuts appreciate the sacrifices made during that day and every day a service member puts their life on the line for the community.

To that end, we wanted to do our part in showing our appreciation. Bank of America sets a shining example by setting the goal to unite Americans through acts of service and good deeds to honor the victims, heroes and all those who rose in service in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that forever changed our nation.

Bank of America Community Volunteers shows their appreciation for our local Police and Fire service members by purchasing and delivering snacks, cookies, and drinks to local police or fire departments. Their goal is to deliver to each of the police and fire departments in the greater Charlotte area.

Over the past days, first responders have been busy helping the community deal with the flooding and wind damage dealt by Florence.

On Tuesday, store owner David Knight and store manager Christina Evans wanted to honor those involved in keeping our communities safe and provided (and in some cases will provide) donuts for several regional police stations and fire departments.

“If felt great to participate in this wonderful event honoring our first responders,” said Knight. “This also felt so timely after the impacts of Florence. First responders, we salute you!”

This furthers the commitment Knight and Evans established for their two Dunkin Donuts’ franchises in giving back to the Ballantyne and Tega Cay communities.  We have more events planned for the Fall and Holiday Season to support the great local charities and give back to the community.

Cheers,

Cool Beverages That Scream Summer: Dunkin’ Donuts Serves Ice Cream Flavored Coffees and New Frozen Lemonade

Based on America’s vote, Butter Pecan, Cookie Dough and Pistachio flavored coffees are back on Dunkin’ Donuts’ menu this summer

Dunkin’ Donuts introduces Original and Strawberry Frozen Lemonade,each made with real fruit juice for simple and pure refreshment

   Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts asked America to share their favorite from among the brand’s most popular ice cream flavored coffees, with the chance to bring it back to the menu for summer 2018. The fans voted, summer is here again, and the sweet selections are being served at Dunkin’ Donuts. Now returning to participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide, as chosen by coffee lovers coast to coast, are:

  • Butter Pecan: The indulgent butter roasted pecan and sweet cream flavors have met their match in Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee.
  • Cookie Dough: This flavor will transport taste buds to the moments just before cookies are popped into the oven with the sweet taste of cookie dough.
  • Pistachio: Pistachio ice cream lovers will go nuts for the sweet pistachio taste of this iced coffee flavor.

All three sweet sips are available for a limited time through the season, and can be enjoyed in Dunkin’ Donuts’ hot and iced coffees, lattes, macchiatos, Frozen Coffee and Frozen Chocolate.

To show appreciation for those who took time last summer to vote via social media, Dunkin’ Donuts has selected a dozen fans whose post or comment the brand particularly enjoyed. Each will be surprised with a summer’s worth of Dunkin’ coffee, and one day this summer a Dunkin’ Donuts in their town will offer free medium ice cream flavored iced coffees to the first 500 guests. The full list of fans – and the date and location of the free ice cream flavored coffee days – will be posted on the Dunkin’ Donuts’ blog in early June. A video highlighting some favorite fan posts and comments can also be viewed here.

This summer, Dunkin’ Donuts also has a new choice for keeping cool, introducing new Frozen Lemonade. Available in both Original and Strawberry, both flavors are made with real fruit juice for simple and pure frozen refreshment. New Frozen Lemonade is being served at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide for a limited time.

Finally, for a little savory to go with the sweet, Dunkin’ Donuts has brought back its popular Sweet Black Pepper Bacon Breakfast Sandwich for summer. This breakfast sandwich favorite has four strips of bacon coated in a brown sugar and black pepper seasoning, served with egg and a slice of American cheese on an oven-toasted croissant. The Sweet Black Pepper Bacon Breakfast Sandwich is also available as a Wake-Up Wrap®, with ½ egg, a slice of American cheese and two slices of the special seasoned bacon, served on a small flour tortilla.

New Holiday Offerings at the Ballantyne Dunkin Donuts

The holiday season is here at Dunkin Donuts, and we are sure to have something you will love. 

We are introducing new Gingerbread and Frosted Sugar Cookie Donuts and returning favorites Peppermint Mocha and Brown Sugar Cinnamon flavored coffee beverages.

Our Frosted Sugar Cookie Donut features a frosted donut with cookie dough flavored filling, topped with crumbled frosted sugar cookies. We would recommend that you pair it with a Peppermint Mocha Coffee. This classic combination of mint and chocolate really rounds out the sweetness of the donut while enhancing the frosted cookie notes.

Our Gingerbread Donut is a caramel frosted donut sprinkled with gingerbread cookie topping. Try it with our other returning holiday favorite, Brown Sugar Cinnamon Latte. The creamy latte brings out the caramel notes in the donut, while the brown sugar perfectly pairs with the gingerbread.

Our holiday flavors are available in all your favorite coffee and espresso beverages. Plus, this season we are serving the Snowflake Sprinkle Donut, a frosted donut with red icing and special snowflake sprinkles, and Snowflake Sprinkle MUNCHKINS®, featuring a chocolate glazed MUNCHKINS donut hole treat rolled in snowflake sprinkles.

You can get all of this beginning November 20!
