Dunkin’ Donuts has announced a rather attractive buy-one-get-one offer for National Coffee Day on Friday, Sept. 29.
We checked with both of the franchise owners of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee shops in the Dayton, Springfield and Cincinnati area, and both confirmed they’re participating in the promotion.
Here are the details:
On Friday, Sept. 29, any guest who purchases a medium or larger cup of Dunkin’ Donuts signature hot coffee will receive an additional medium hot coffee for free.
“Connecting over coffee with friends, family and colleagues is often a key part of an on-the-go day,” Tom Manchester, vice president of field marketing for Dunkin’ Donuts, said in a release. The promotion will make it easy and affordable for customers “to bring the joy of coffee to their favorite people, or to perhaps keep themselves extra energized to make the most of the day,” Manchester said.

Dunkin’ Donuts is also offering an array of coffees featuring fall flavors. In addition to its pumpkin-flavored hot and iced coffees and lattes, Dunkin’ Donuts this year introduced Maple Pecan-flavored coffees and lattes.
There are Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Kettering, Centerville, Sugarcreek Twp., Miami Twp., Riverside and Springfield. All but one of the existing shops (Miami Twp.) have opened in the last four years.

The Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and breakfast chain has been expanding. The greater Dayton area’s sixth Dunkin’ Donuts shop opened last October at 1310 Woodman Drive in Riverside.
Prior to Gilligan’s franchise deal, Dunkin’ Donuts’ once-robust presence in the Dayton area had shrunk to one location on Springboro Pike (Ohio 741) near the Dayton Mall, which operates under separate franchise ownership.
Originally a doughnut and coffee chain, Dunkin’ Donuts has expanded its offerings in recent years to include frozen and iced beverages as well as bagels, muffins, breakfast sandwiches, bakery sandwiches and wraps.
