The Culinary Institute of America dedicates the first Dunkin’ Donuts bakeshop on San Antonia Campus

The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and Dunkin’ Donuts, a franchise offering coffee and baked goods, recently dedicated the nation’s first Dunkin’ Donuts Bakeshop, located on the CIA’s newly expanded campus in San Antonio, Texas. As part of a $900,000 pledge from Dunkin’ Brands to become a founding donor of the CIA’s “El Sueño” initiative, the company’s support will assist the baking and pastry faculty at the world’s premier culinary college to educate students and industry professionals about traditional Latin American baked goods, which are still unfamiliar to many in North America.

According to the information provided, the Dunkin’ Donuts Bakeshop will provide the CIA’s students with the basic fundamentals of baking and pastry arts and offer the extensive hands-on technical skills necessary for success in the foodservice industry. The Bakeshop is fully equipped with state-of-the-art bakery ovens, commercial mixers, baking equipment, hand tools and other supplies required to prepare an array of baked goods from donuts, muffins, croissants and all types of breads, desserts, pastries and confections. The kitchen also features a chocolate tempering area designed for dipping, making truffles and creating décor for cakes. From learning the classic skills and the fine art of baking pastry, to commercial baking production and running the front counter at the new bakery café, students will be prepared to work in a variety of settings, including bakeries, cafés, and quick service, casual, and gourmet restaurants.

Executive Chef Stan Frankenthaler commented, “Dunkin’ Donuts has a 60-year baking heritage, and we are proud to support the first Dunkin’ Donuts Bakeshop at the CIA, San Antonio, to advance baking and pastry arts. This profession has a rich history steeped in tradition, and we are excited to be able to encourage both students and professionals in the baking and pastry field to explore and preserve Latin flavors and traditional cuisines.”

With 16,000 points of distribution in 49 countries worldwide, Dunkin' Brands, Inc. is renowned for its leadership in the quick quality category. At the end of 2009, there were 9,186 Dunkin' Donuts franchised restaurants and 6,207 Baskin-Robbins franchised restaurants and the company had system-wide sales of approximately $7.2 billion. (kbp)
