Good evening!

I was searching for the appropriate email address online to make a complaint and actually was surprised to find a contact for the CEO of Dunkin' Donuts. I thought I will take this opportunity if it was so readily available to go straight to the person who might actually care about what I have to say.
First, just want to let you know that I have been a loyal customer of Dunkin' Donuts for a very long time, not only on the personal level but also I have been visiting the local store every week for my weekly meetings at the resort I manage. I had nothing but positive experiences, minus some smaller issues like donuts filled with the wrong filling etc. Nothing major. Until today.
This morning I stopped by to get an ice caramel latte, my favorite from Dunkin' Donuts, I actually prefer yours over Starbucks when it comes to this drink. However, today, I had an experience that changed my mind about Dunkin' Donuts probably forever.
I brought the coffee around 9:30 am, drank about half of it on the way home and then put it in the fridge for later. I completely forgot about it until about 4:30 pm. I went to drink it and since it has been in the fridge for a while, it became pretty watered down from the ice so after a few sips, I decided to dump it in the sink and throw away the cup. To my surprise, on the bottom of the cup there was a nasty, coffee soaked paper towel. I had to try really hard not to vomit into the sink. I'm still having my stomach turning as I'm typing this. I do not even want to imagine how that paper towel got into my cup at the first place and what was is contaminated with. This is the most disgusting thing that I came across for a while when it comes to my restaurant experiences. I don't think I had anything even close as disturbing as this is.
I will be going by the store tomorrow morning and will be sharing my experience with the manager on site. I wonder what she/he will have to say.
Meanwhile, I hope you will use my email to educate your employees. This should not happen to paying customers. This makes me question everything I loved about Dunkin' Donuts.
My husband told me that I should probably go to the news however I thought I rather message you. As a resort manager, in a situation like this I would appreciate a customer coming to me first with any type of complaints.
I took pictures and saved the cup and the paper towel on the bottom so I can show it to the manager tomorrow.
Please let me know if you are interested in seeing them.
The incident happened at the 3821 S. Ridgewood, Port Orange, FL location.
