The introduction of the new Chicken and Tuna Sandwiches provides customers with exciting new menu choices in response to on-the-go, busy lifestyles and changing consumer eating habits and expectations.

"By expanding our variety of afternoon offerings to complement our current menu items, Dunkin' Donuts customers have more ways to keep themselves running any time of day."

The new sandwiches expand Dunkin' Donuts' current lineup of oven-toasted sandwiches, which includes hot and crispy favorites such as Chicken Parmesan, Ham & Cheese, Turkey Cheddar & Bacon and Grilled Cheese.
