CANTON, Mass. — Dunkin’ Brands, the parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, presented Manni and Man-Lay Duong of Toronto, Ontario, with the 2014 Baskin-Robbins Operator of the Year Award – one of the company’s highest distinctions – at the 9th annual Dunkin’ Brands Franchisee & Enterprise Awards Ceremony recently held at the State Room in Boston.

“Manni and Man-Lay have only been part of the Baskin-Robbins system since 2013, but in that short time they’ve improved operational standards, increased customer traffic and boosted their cake business with creations that are truly works of art,” said Rick Woods, Vice President of Operations, Baskin-Robbins U.S. and Canada. “They also focus on great guest service and earning customer loyalty. We’re proud to recognize Manni and Man-Lay as our 2014 Baskin-Robbins Operators of the Year.”

In addition, the Duongs were applauded for their community involvement, including participating in the “Cakes for Community” event to support the Toronto SickKids Foundation. The pair provided more than 50 cakes that were delivered to local radio stations as part of the effort to promote the fundraising drive, as well as cakes for the official kick-off ceremony.

“Being named the Baskin-Robbins Operators of the Year means very much to both of us and to our employees, who are like family,” said Ms. Duong. “Our employees are dedicated to a high standard of quality and keeping our guests happy. They help make our business a success.”
