Parents are looking for new and exciting ways to keep their kids entertained. Dunkin’ understands and wants to help inspire creativity in the kitchen. Franchisees across the country have started to offer DIY donut kits at participating locations.

The idea spurred from a Dunkin’ franchise in the Bay Area. Matt Cobo had an employee from his Concord, California restaurant come up with the idea to create DIY donut kits to bring joy to local families. Cobo’s Walnut Creek and Concord stores began creating DIY Donut Kits to give kids the opportunity to make their own donut creations at home. 

According to the Dunkin’ Blog, Cobo’s sister began dropping the donut kits off on the doorsteps of friends and family members texting them, “You’ve been Dunk’d!”  Crew members from all of his locations have been encouraged to surprise loved ones with donut decorating kits.

DIY donut kits come complete with donuts, frosting and sprinkles.

According to the packaging, “This is our area of expertise, but today we’re handing the chef’s hat off to you. What you create is up to your imagination. The only important thing is that you have loads of hands-on donut-crafting fun(while of course making sure the donut you craft is absolutely delicious.)”

Call ahead and check with your local Dunkin’ to see if the kits are available at a store near you.

As of March 17, service at Dunkin’ restaurants is temporarily limited to drive-thru ordering, carry-out and delivery, with a select number of locations also offering curbside service.
