Canton, Mass. -- Dunkin Brands said Friday it has launched its first-ever mobile app for payment and gifting purposes.
The app for iPhone, iPod touch or Android smartphone will allow users to pay food, beverages, and merchandise at Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants throughout the U.S. by scanning a device in-store or at the drive-thru.
Additionally, an mGift feature will enable consumers to send virtual gift cards three ways – text, email, and Facebook Connect.
The free app, available from the App Store and Google Play Store, supports American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and PayPal. It includes store location features, nutritional information, and social media links.
“This is a clear example of our determination to invest in technologies that help us exceed our guests’ expectations and enable our franchisees to run their restaurants as efficiently and effectively as possible,” said Nigel Travis, Dunkin’ Brands CEO and Dunkin’ Donuts president, U.S.
