Suit: Dunkiní did me wrong
New York Post ^ | May 26, 2012 | MARK DeCAMBRE

More lawsuits are brewing at Dunkin’ Donuts.

A franchisee is suing the coffee-and-donut chain for racial discrimination, in particular against “Asian Indian American women of color.”

Priti Shetty, who is Indian American, filed a suit in New Jersey state court last week against publicly traded Dunkin’ Brands, accusing it of a poor track record with people of color.

“They don’t like me and they have to like me” is the basis of most of these “suits”

Seems every Dunkin Donuts I’ve been into in the last few years is staffed by Priti’s people. Just where is the discrimination?

Joe Biden said that you can’t go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.

I suggest that Joe Biden be consulted about this lawsuit....................

We just got one here about six months ago (VERY close to my apartment complex ... maybe 100 feet away) so, of course I’ll probably gain 20 lbs. Mrs. 2ndDivisionVet loves their bagels.

A lot of DD in NJ are owned by S Asian people the main problem is that the coffee isn’t very good because the pots aren’t cleaned very well. Noticable idfference from stores run by people of different ethnic backgrounds.

“Asian Indian American women of color.”

Asian?
Indian?
American?

If these folks are confused about who they are...shouldn't Dunkin Donuts have a right to be confused about them too?

Ms. Shetty should move to NYC. Most of the people who work at the Dunkin Donut shops are south Asian. Methinks she is full of shett.

No picture at the story link. I wonder what Priti Shetty really looks like.

If I go into any convenience store or gas stations, package store and I see it is run by “ Indians” I do an about face and leave. I refuse to deal with them and you are correct they do smell!

You are saying a place with terrible donuts and coffee and inhospitable staff has driven all the other donut shops out of business? Sounds unlikely.

Going to have to disagree with you, at least with DD where I live which is owned and operated by a west Asian (probably Indian) family. Very nice, clean place, never had a stale donut, and they are polite.

I for one cannot use the term “Native American” — it refers to anyone born in America. “Asian Indian,” on the other hand, makes it clear that it isn’t “American Indian.”

Now most “Asian Indians” are actually Caucasian. I would think that “Asian Indian American Women of Color” is actually a very small group.

Does anyone know Dunkin’s business model? The story makes it sound as though she manages two stores but wants to manage at least three (I assume that’s what she means by ‘multi-unit’ managers)

Now she doesn’t like the idea of staying open 24 hours in unsafe neighborhoods. Surely she realizes that the pizza delivery companies got in trouble for not servicing those neighborhoods.
