CANTON, Mass. (November 24, 2009) -- On the eve of the holiday season, Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, every day stop for coffee and baked goods, is delivering a very special gift to the men and women who deliver our holiday cards, catalogs and presents. On Wednesday, November 25, Dunkin' Donuts will serve free coffee to any United States Postal Service (USPS) letter carrier. Any USPS letter carrier that is wearing an official uniform or shows their union card identification can visit participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout the country for a free coffee, any size. No additional purchase is necessary.

"The United States Postal Service letter carriers serve tirelessly throughout the holiday season, and we wanted to recognize their hard work during this very busy time of year," said John Costello, Dunkin' Brands' Chief Global Customer and Marketing Officer. "We invite letter carriers to kick off the season with a free cup of coffee at their local Dunkin' Donuts restaurant, and to know that we are there to help keep them running through snow or rain or gloom of night."

Dunkin' Donuts has set the standard for offering a superior grade of coffee, and the company sells more than one billion cups of hot and iced coffee every year. In 2008, an independent taste test showed that Americans preferred Dunkin' Donuts coffee over Starbucks. Dunkin' Donuts has earned the No. 1 ranking for customer loyalty in the coffee category by Brand Keys for three years running.
