Dunkin’ Donuts and Amtrak® Expand Partnership with Hot Coffee Service On Board Amtrak® Northeast Regional Trains



Dunkin’ Donuts and Amtrak today announced the expansion of their partnership to now offer Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend and Dunkin’ Decaf hot coffee on board Amtrak Northeast Regional trains. The newest phase of this partnership follows the successful April launch of Dunkin’ Donuts hot coffee on board Amtrak Acela Express high-speed trains throughout the Northeast Corridor.

With the expanded partnership, Dunkin’ Donuts’ signature hot coffee will be available to nearly 12 million customers who ride Northeast Regional and Acela Express services each year. Dunkin’ Donuts hot coffee will be served all day in First Class and Café cars, and will be brewed using the same equipment featured in Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants to ensure the same high quality and great taste enjoyed by millions of Dunkin’ guests each and every day.

“After a successful Acela Express launch, we’re excited to expand our partnership with Amtrak and serve those traveling to more than 50 stops between Richmond, VA and Boston, MA,” said Brian Gilbert, Dunkin’ Donuts Senior Director, New Business Development. “Whether guests are traveling for business or leisure in the Northeast, they’ll have Dunkin’ Donuts hot coffee to keep them energized throughout the trip.”

“We are excited to provide even more of our customers with an elevated coffee experience,” said Thomas J. Hall, Amtrak Vice President Passenger Experience.  “Our expanded partnership offers customers more of what they told us they want on board – variety, value and higher quality options. As two brands who share a commitment to providing a distinctive and premium customer experience, Amtrak and Dunkin’ Donuts are a great partnership.”

Northeast Regional is one of Amtrak’s most popular services on the nation’s busiest rail corridor, offering hourly service to New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Richmond and Lynchburg, VA, and other intermediate cities. Northeast Regional customers can skip the hassle of I-95 traffic and enjoy the benefits and comforts of train travel including more legroom and spacious seats. Amtrak’s Northeast Regional service has led significant growth in revenue and market share in the Northeast, increasing from 6.8 million customers in Fiscal Year 2007 to 8.4 million customers in Fiscal Year 2016.
