Dunkin' Donuts To Start Delivering Through Mobile App

Following in the footsteps of Starbucks, McDonald's, and Taco Bell, Dunkin' Donuts executives recently revealed that plans for delivery are in the works — though you probably won't be able to take advantage of that for a while.

During a recent media conference at Dunkin' Donuts headquarters, the company announced that its delivery service would be part of an update to its mobile app. The new update will also allow customers to request curbside and in-store pickup, to reduce wait times.

The update is set to roll out next year, beginning with current DD perks members in a single market that has yet to be identified.

Assuming all goes well, the app update will be made available to Perks members everywhere. Like its fellow coffee and fast food chains, delivery is expected to be carried out by a third party, like Postmates, which relies on  part-time employees with their own vehicles, much like Uber.
