The move is designed to help DUNKIN' DONUTS create a more pleasant atmosphere for customers and better working conditions for its staff, and at
the same time come into line with the Quebec Tobacco Act. Some of the larger restaurants in the chain will offer smokers a semi-enclosed smoking area with a separate ventilation system.
The Quebec Tobacco Act, unanimously adopted by the National Assembly on June 17, 1998, established a ten-year period for the implementation of new rules concerning the consumption of tobacco products in Quebec. All new DUNKIN' DONUTS restaurants opened since that time are already smoke-free. From now on, this policy will apply to all of the chain's restaurants, whether they
have been renovated or not.
Founded in New England in 1950, DUNKIN' DONUTS first made its way across the border into Canada in 1961. Today the chain operates over 5,000 restaurants in over 30 countries. The more than 140 DUNKIN' DONUTS restaurants in Quebec are operated as independent franchises.
