Story Pitch 2: Staff Upset Regarding Opening of Dunkin Donuts in Upper Usdan? 

Dunkin Donuts opened a new location at Brandeis University; the branch is now located in Upper Usdan. While many enthusiastically anticipated its opening, it seemed employees of nearby coffee venders were not as enthused.  Employees at Brandeis’ Starbucks surveyed customers regarding their perception of the coffee at Dunkin Donuts, often adding that they were dissatisfied with its “watery” taste. One employee explained that the coffee was cheap and Starbucks’ was of a higher quality.  Potential interviewees include employees at both Starbucks and Dunking Donuts. The report aims to better understand the apparent tension between the employees of both venders.
