Culinary Dream Team

In 2006, Dunkin’ Brands assembled a culinary dream team of acclaimed chefs to work with the company’s research and development team to create new and innovative menu choices. This team is led by award-winning chef Stan Frankenthaler, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and the brand’s first-ever Executive Chef & Director of Culinary Development. Dunkin’ Brands’ Executive Pastry Chef is Christopher Boos, an American Culinary Federation Chef of the Year.
