CANTON, MASS. — A partnership with Beyond Meat, Inc. and the launch of signature lattes contributed to sales growth at Dunkin’ restaurants in the recent quarter. Looking ahead, executives of parent company Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. expect the introduction of a non-dairy oat milk latte to drive continued momentum.
“A key pillar within our blueprint for growth strategy is centered around beverage leadership, food innovation and consistent value,” said David L. Hoffmann, chief executive officer of Dunkin’ Brands Group, during a Feb. 6 earnings call. “These three areas worked hard for us in 2019, driving 2.8% comparable store sales growth in the fourth quarter, the highest quarterly comp in six years, and driving our full-year comp to the highest point in seven years.”
