How Dunkin' Donuts used location
ads to feed donut lovers

To encourage more people to visit Dunkin’ Donuts stores across the country, the coffee and baked goods chain, as well as its advertising agency, Hill Holiday turned to location technology to target customers on a local level. By reaching people at the right time—in the right place—on their mobile phones, Dunkin’ Donuts spiked coffee and treat interest from Boston to California.
