    Dunkin’ runs on gun owners; franchises able to set gun policy after Chipotle retreat

    “Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins restaurants are owned and operated by individual franchisees who are required to follow all federal, state and local laws with regard to firearms,” said a Dunkin’ Brands spokeswoman in a statement, CNBC reported. Rich Jeffers, director of communications at Darden Restaurants, the parent company of Olive Garden, Red Lobster and LongHorn Steakhouse, told CNBC: “Our approach has always been that we abide by all local and state laws.” And McDonald’s spokeswoman Lisa McComb said: “For franchisee-owned restaurants, operational decisions regarding open carry weapon laws are made by the independent franchisee.”

    A social media campaign led by an activist group called “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America” prompted Chipotle to issue a statement Tuesday that requested customers not bring weapons into their restaurants.

    Good for Darden for letting the individual franchisee make their own choice, based on local laws. While this will probably create some confusion from store to store, as more and more of them see they have no problems, word should spread.

    There are probably a lot of early morning hunters out there that would welcome a nice, warm place for some coffee and a bite of breakfast before heading afield.
