Our customers have very busy lives, and our goal with this and other co-located branches is to make it as easy as possible for our customers to take care of their banking needs when, where and how they want.”
”Our franchisees strive to identify ways to make life more convenient for busy people on-the-go,” said John Dawson, Chief Development Officer for Dunkin’ Donuts. “With the addition of the Citizens Bank branch in Cambridge, we are making it easier for our guests to take care of their banking needs while enjoying a great cup of coffee or bakery product.”
The full-service Citizens Bank branch features three teller windows and a full-service ATM. It also has two private offices to best serve the individual banking needs of its customers. The Dunkin' Donuts restaurant offers customers its full line of world class beverages as well as dozens of varieties of donuts, baked goods and sandwiches.
