Dunkin’ Donuts operates the advertising and sales promotion fund and directs the development of all advertising, marketing, and promotional programs. The content of all operations of the fund, including the media used, as well as the area and restaurants targeted for such operations is determined by the franchisor. A franchisee can use other advertising or promotional materials only upon an official written approval from Dunkin’ Donuts.
