We couldn’t help but smile after reading this article in one of our local papers, The Boston Phoenix. While we’re sure you’ve heard about DD Coffee fans, this piece was a great reminder of the passionate following our guests have for Dunkin’ Donuts’ freshly brewed iced tea. For DD fans who have never tried Dunkin’ Donuts’ iced tea, it has freshly brewed taste that you just can’t find in a bottle. Available in classic, peach or raspberry flavors, guests have several delicious flavor varieties to select from.
Inspired by how our iced tea keeps Scott, a front-end web developer and member of the professional a cappella group, Overboard, running every day, we scheduled a time to check-in with this dedicated Boston area Foursquare Mayor to talk tea and what keeps him checking in on Foursquare.
Q: So Scott, when did you first discover Dunkin’ Donuts’ iced tea?
A: Around four to five years ago. I don’t drink coffee, so when I came in to Dunkin’ Donuts, I started getting iced tea to pair with food and now I’m hooked. It’s refreshing and flavorful and tastes great either alone, or with food.
Q: Do you switch between hot and iced tea?
A: No, I have to drink iced tea regardless of the season! Even in the winter I crave it!
Q: Congratulations on your Foursquare Mayorship. Why is the Dunkin’ Donuts location in the Prudential Center your favorite?
A: Thanks! It’s close to work, but the crew here is great. They recognize me when I come in and they’re friendly. They also make a great iced tea. It’s important for it to be consistent and the refreshing flavor that I have come to expect and they always deliver.
Q: On Foursquare you can leave tips at the locations you check-in at. Do you have any tips to share with DD fans who visit this restaurant?
A: Yes! Don’t be afraid to get to know your crew members. Even if you only come once a week, or a few times per week, be friendly. Say hello! While I come to this Dunkin’ Donuts a lot, I think the real reason they all remember me is because I say hi, or thank them by name when I come in.
Q: Being the Mayor of a location on Foursquare is a big matter of pride to some. Do you ever worry about losing the title to another dedicated DD fan?
A: Earning – and holding onto – my Mayorship at this busy Dunkin’ Donuts is no small feat! Between all of the companies, restaurants and retail stores in the Prudential Center, it is something I think about. I am definitely committed to keeping my Mayorship and do worry that someone may take the title from me when I go on vacation. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen!
Q: If Mayors could make laws, what would you make and why?
A: I like to fly under the radar, but I do try to lead by example. I try to get through the line quickly, but believe in engaging in friendly chatter with the crew and thanking them for my iced tea!
Thanks again to Scott for taking the time to meet with us!
