That was how I greeted people at Starbucks when I worked there. According to the SOP it was supposed to be:
"HI, My name is River. What can I get for you today?"
I'd like a hot cocoa with marshmallows and a straw with no less than three loops in it.

Oh but you are so wrong. Dunkin is a threat to any other competitor in their market. Baxters, Amon's, etc. they will all survive they will just get a smaller piece of the pie.
I don't think it will hurt Baxter's as much as it will Amon's. I hope DD doesn't hurt either one of them to be honest. So far my friends who are big coffee drinkers (I'm not one) only like DD because they stay open later than Baxter's so they can get coffee now in the evenings.

When Orange Leaf opens next to them later this month I'm afraid it will really hurt Twisted Pineapple...different subject I know but it's true. TP is out of the way compared to Orange Leaf.

For a community that considers itself to be a model of virtue and morality, there sure are a lot of people on here who go out of their way to be spiteful. Having a preference is one thing. Setting out to trash a business or person is a whole different ball game and shows just how many emotional bottom feeders live in this area. Perhaps the local preachers should spend less time lecturing their congregations on the evils of alcohol and more time talking about the virtues of kindness and respect.

WOW, all the refined citizens of Somerset are speaking their minds! I joke of course... First and foremost, the people working there are all NEW at what they are doing (at least they are working at something). Secondly, they are just opened and LEARNING the "ropes" so to speak. It's called a learning technique. If, after a reasonable amount of time goes by and you are still not satisfied, by all means, move along. Until then, shut up! Seems to me that for people who live in one of the poorest states in our Country, you might give a world wide franchise at least a chance. It's only as good as its employees and their all of HERE!

So it's only the church goers that are trashing a business or person? And it's the church goers that are causing the model of virtue and morality to decay because they are emotional bottom feeders? I find it funny that a 7yr old kid this past weekend was nearly suspended from school for playing an imaginary game of save the world where he pretended to throw a grenade (complete with whoosh sound effects) because our society won't allow that type of play but over the top, gratuitous, blatant sexuality that was displayed during the super bowl commercials was all in good fun and shouldn't be an issue.

It's not cool for that kid to act as though he is saving the world but it should be ok for schools to give abortion pills and contraceptives behind parents backs, as it's being discussed else where. Yeah that is the church's doings alright. If you go to church you would know that most speak less about the ills of alcohol and more of moral decay our society is seeing....at least they should be seeing it.

Their food tasting horrible, and the availability of said food doesn't reflect on the employees, but the company. Those things obviously aren't their faults.

The service is a different thing. I was being polite. I've worked in retail and I know that it makes life a lot easier when all are good to each other. Anyways, the woman taking my order acted annoyed that I was asking questions. That reflected on her. I will return after a long while to check it out again I think.

It is not the employes fault, it is the uppity ups who trained them. I will say the place is ran terribly and I hate Amons doughnuts. When I want a doughnut i will get them for half the cost at walmart or from Krispys in Lex. I really hope this place is not owned by Iraqis/Iranians..I..I...I... I dont think they are Americans or whatever.

I'll have to go back and see waht is going on. When I was there on Saturday the workers were polite and efficient even though thay were very busy. There wasn't a big selection of donuts available, but people were sure buying them. What we got were pretty good. I do like Baxter's coffee better than Dunkin Donuts' though.

The great thing about living in our little, mostly over weight town, is there will be enough customers for all. I think Amons business will actually go up and Baxters will probably suffer a little.
With Dunkin Donuts name in your face every time you get on 27 it reminds you of Donuts. May not want Dunkins but may want Amons. Not sure where Baxters fits in long term but I'm sure they will survive too.

Wait a minute!!!
What happened to all the "buy from Mom & Pop first" crowd???
How many times have I come to this board and read a thread absolutely trashing Walmart because they put mom & pop stores out of business?
Yet, in this thread you have people singing the praises of DD and accusing the OP as someone with a vested interest in a local "mom & pop" shop!

Another local owner who's scared of loosing business.. Or one of their employees.. LOL!

There's enough "Donut" business for everyone around here in my opinion.

Maybe I'll stop by there today to see what they have left. I've not had DD's in a few years. I used to LOVE their bagels.

You tried to make a similar claim about me when I posted about a bad salad I had at a local restaurant. You were wrong then and you're probably wrong now.
Some people put way to much confidence in their own assumptions.
So it's not just Dunkin' Donuts and Orange Leaf that offend your refined pallet. Sounds to me like there is a chronic complainer in the house.
