Friday, July 14th, 2017

Dunkin' Brands, the parent company of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, named National DCP as the 2016 Partner of the Year at the 11th annual Dunkin' Brands Franchisee & Enterprise Awards Ceremony held recently in Boston. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, National DCP is the $2 billion supply chain management company that provides strategic sourcing, distribution and business services to Dunkin' Donuts franchisees.

"National DCP has been an outstanding partner to Dunkin' Brands since its inception as a national entity in 2012," said David Gill, Vice President, U.S. & Canada Supply Chain, Dunkin' Brands. "From driving down the cost of goods, improving perfect order metrics and providing excellent support of Dunkin's promotional activities, NDCP played a key role in 2016 being a transformative year for our organization."

National DCP's partnership with Dunkin' Brands Supply Chain generated more than $25 million in cost savings to the Dunkin' Donuts system last year. These savings, along with active commodity management and operational savings, drove the lowest food cost since Dunkin' began reporting. Service levels have continued to improve year-over-year, with new systems being implemented and new distribution centers coming online. NDCP was also able to generate close to $3 million in contributions from suppliers for the Joy in Childhood Foundation (formerly The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation).

"We are deeply honored to win Dunkin' Brands' Partner of the Year Award," said Scott Carter, Chief Executive Officer of National DCP. "Strong collaboration with Dunkin' Brands is critical in delivering value to our cooperative's membership, which is comprised of Dunkin' Donuts franchisees. Our team members have worked tirelessly to deliver the best possible service at the lowest sustainable costs."
