Dunkin Donut Compliment - New In Our Town - freebie

Review by lacotagrl on 2011-07-09
HINESVILLE, GEORGIA -- My husband and I decided to stop into the new Dunkin Donut that opened up about a month ago for a to go coffee and iced drink and we drove up to pay and the guy who served us was very polite and even offered us free donuts if we wanted one. I don't know if that is customary or not but he was really nice and polite and picked out his favorite choices before we left. We were happy with our experience. As I said I do not know if they always give out a free donut with a drink but we appreciated the gesture just because we were not even thinking about it at the time.

This sounds like a wonderful experience.

I had my own "Grand Opening" experience at a DD. It had been open maybe 3 weeks. I went in to buy a few expensive donuts, and let's say the bill was $1.52. I gave the guy $1.60, and he puts it in the drawer and closes it without saying anything. I question him, and he says he has no change.

Needless to say, I haven't been back! I dislike their donuts in the first place - it wasn't all that necessary for him to seal the deal by ripping me off.

This caused me to seek out a real bakery. The donuts are $.40 each, and delicious. It is a private bakery that has been in business for 40 years.

Very nice review. Sounds like this location is going to be around for a long time with great service such as you received.

Although you cannot expect to receive free donuts each time you visit, the fact that they gave you some when you weren't even expecting it, definitely plants a lasting memory. It's those little unexpected gestures that keep business coming back time and time again. Great review!

The free donut might have been part of a grand opening promotion. That's a great way to build a base of loyal customers. I hope they continue that level of service and don't let you down in the future.

Nice review. DD coffee is my favorite!
