Dunkin Donuts starts doing delivery, Subway's Jared Fogle goes to prison, and Air Jordans creep into the world of food and drink.
Today's first course?
Dunkin’ Donuts is stepping up their game with home delivery. The service is launching in Dallas this week and will be followed by Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Washington. The coffee chain is just the latest of many to introduce delivery, following the example set by Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Taco Bell. But Dunkin’ Donuts isn’t stopping there. They have also introduced their own mobile order app at 124 locations. Using the app, customers can order ahead of time and pick up on-the-go.
And former Subway spokesman, Jared Fogle, has received a sentence of 15 years and eight months for sex charges brought against him earlier this year. Fogle has been charged with viewing child pornography, as well as engaging in paid sex acts with minors. The sandwich chain immediately severed ties with Fogle when the charges came to light, however later news indicates that one Subway franchisee had attempted to warn corporate several times and the company took no action.
The restaurant known as Dirty French in New York City is adding a little whimsy to their staff uniforms. All servers are now required to wear Air Jordan sneakers! The culinary hotspot has an ‘80s vibe and even lets the staff keep their signature kicks after being with the company for a year. Michael Jordan himself visited the restaurant proclaiming that he loved the food, but the shoes were his favorite part of the evening.
That's today's Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
