An employee of a Chicago cafe was fired and arrested last week after allegedly spitting out a cup of coffee he was serving to an Illinois soldier
Illinois state police said a soldier bought a large black coffee Thursday night in a Dunkin ‘shop on the side of the city on the west coast, near Chicago Midway International Airport. Since the coffee was very hot, he removed the lid to let it cool.
The next day, the soldiers arrested 25-year-old Vincent Sessler, accusing him of reckless behavior and beating up a peacekeeper.
Illinois Police Director Brendan F. Kelly ordered state soldiers and policemen not to protect Dunkin’s post “for their safety”.
Canton, Massachusetts-based Dunkin ‘issued a statement stating that the behavior is shown by Sessler “is not in line with the brand’s values.
The owner immediately took action against the culprit
“The franchise owner, who owns and operates this restaurant independently, informs us that he has taken immediate steps to investigate the matter and has fired the person responsible for this questionable behavior.
Dunkin ‘was known as Dunkin’ Donuts until it was renamed in January 2019. All Dunkin stores in the United States are owned and operated by franchisees.
