Dunkin’ CEO Says Vegan Donuts Could Be On The Menu Soon

by | May 16, 2020

The CEO of Dunkin’ stated during a recent shareholder meeting that the company is working to launch a vegan donut.

“As it relates to a vegan donut, we continue to investigate a viable vegan donut option” said CEO David Hoffman.

“We are looking at it closely” he added.

Hoffman shared the news in response to a question from Animal Outlook — an animal welfare organization.

Animal Outlook has been putting pressure on the chain to increase its plant-based options — a recently launched a petition for Dunkin’ to offer a vegan donut has more than 21,000 signatures of support.

Earlier this year, Dunkin’ put oat milk on the menu nationwide — almond milk has been available since 2014.

The fast-food chain embraced plant-based meat alternatives for the first time last year, with the addition of the Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich.

The breakfast sandwich features a Beyond Meat sausage patty, an egg, and a slice of cheese on an English muffin — it can be made vegan by foregoing the egg and cheese.
