According to a recent report from not-for-profit food industry news source The New Food Economy, Dunkin'-the coffee and donut-centric chain of restaurants that once went by the name Dunkin' Donuts-has been cracking down on restaurants within its system that have hired undocumented workers.
According to The New Food Economy's reporting, the brand has tried to close nearly 30 of its East Coast restaurants since September of last year, and in at least three instances, Dunkin' found franchisees' workers hadn't had their employment status verified. The brand then took the storeowners to court to terminate the franchise contract for the stores in question.
