Dunkin’ employee dishes on where their beloved donuts come from

While America may run on Dunkin’, an employee is dishing on how his store runs when it comes to where they get their donuts.

Amir Mohamed, who reportedly oversees operations at a Dunkin’ location in California, posted a video on TikTok that spills a few trade secrets about the options for donuts.

“So, as a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee, you have three options to get donuts,” Mohamed explained in the video. “You can a) bake them yourself in your own kitchen inside the restaurant, you can have them delivered from a central kitchen that you and other franchisees team up to build, which is called a CML, or you could order JBOD donuts, which are like disgusting frozen donuts,” he explained. “Don’t do that.”

Mohamed said his store cooked their own donuts in-house for 12 years servicing seven stores, but it was “an absolute madhouse of an operation” and that they eventually teamed up with other franchisees to build a CML.

“Personally, I loved when we made them in-house because I felt like the donuts were bigger, everything was filled better, it just tasted better but sometimes it becomes too much and we switched to a CML,” he added.

In a separate video, Mohamed explained why most Dunkin’ stores throw out their donuts rather than donating them to food banks — in the process, he pointed out that he took a bite out of every single flavor donut (leftover) each night and ended up gaining 30 pounds.

“The problem was, the food bank was storing these donuts for extensive periods of time, they were keeping them for six or seven days and they started to decompose and get moldy,” he said. “It was just creating a huge liability and we didn’t want to get people sick so we had to resort to throwing them out.”

@amirrors_world Replying to @ehm1633 Why we had to start throwing our donuts. Also the food banks started to not want donuts after a while lol. But we didna really good job of havibg minimal waste. #franchise #franchisee #business #franchiseopportunities #franchisebusiness #dunkin ♬ original sound – Amir Mohamed
