Amtrak to serve Dunkin’ Donut coffee on Acela Express trains in the US
WASHINGTON, USA – Dunkin’ Donuts today announced a partnership with Amtrak to serve Dunkin’ blend coffee on board Amtrak Acela high-speed trains throughout the Northeast Corridor transit lines in the US. The express service runs between Washington D.C. and Boston via Philadelphia, Baltimore and New York City.
With the new agreement, Dunkin’ Donuts’ Original Blend and Dunkin’ Decaf will now be available to 3.4 million customers who travel on the Acela Express trains each year. The move is set to increase Dunkin’s established presence in locations geared towards serving travellers.
‘Both Amtrak and Dunkin' Donuts share a long heritage of serving on-the-go Americans, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to help keep Acela Express passengers energized with Dunkin' Donuts hot coffee whenever and wherever they are traveling,’ commented Chris Fuqua, Senior Vice President, Dunkin' Donuts Brand Marketing, Global Consumer Insights & Product Innovation.
Plans to expand the partnership and serve Dunkin’ coffee on board Amtrak’s Northeast Regional trains are scheduled for later in 2017. The service is Amtrak’s busiest route, carrying over 8 million passengers per year.
