When your local Dunkin Donuts opens Monday, several items will be dropped from the menu in an effort to make service faster and accurate and to makes it easier for workers.

“Franchisees have been asking for something like this for quite some time,” said Chris Fuqua, Dunkin’s senior vice president of operations strategy and supply chain, in the Boston Herald. “They’re facing challenges with labor, and we’re always looking to maximize profitability for franchisees. If you can remove products that are more difficult to make or ... consumers aren’t asking for as much, you can make the stores easier to work in, and you can positively impact their (profit and loss statement).”

Eliminated will be smoothies, afternoon sandwiches, turkey, cheddar bacon, ham and cheddar, tuna and chicken salad, Big N’ Toasted and Angus steak and egg breakfast sandwiches, flatbread items, some muffins and bagel and cream cheese combinations, peach, caramel and mocha flavor coffee shots.

Dunkin Donuts is expected to roll out the new menu across the country by mid-March. By the end of 2018, the company will also be removing the dyes from all products at Dunkin’ and the Baskin-Robbins ice cream chain.
