Veteran Dunkin’ Franchisee and DDIFO member John Motta (who also serves as the current Chairman of the Coalition of Franchisee Associations [CFA]) also participated in the Piper Jaffray 2019 Consumer Conference. John served on the franchisee panel highlighting a day in the life of a franchisee. In the wake of an exciting 2019 Stanley Cup playoff (congratulations, St. Louis Blues!), we were glad to note that Dunkin and the National Hockey League renewed their multi-year corporate partnership going forward. In other Dunkin’ news, Dan Wheeler, who for the past eight years has held numerous positions at Dunkin’ Brands in marketing technology and product development, has been hired by Wahlburgers as its new Vice President of Marketing and Innovation. We wish Dan well in his new capacity with the 30-unit burger franchise.
