Brooklyn Dunkin’ Donuts owner apologizes for not serving NYPD

The owner of a Brooklyn Dunkin’ Donuts where two NYPD cops were refused service has personally apologized to one of the officers and plans a meeting to try and put the matter to rest, the shop’s corporate parent said Thursday.

In a prepared statement, Dunkin’ Brands spokeswoman Michelle King said the company was “aware of the recent situation” — in which a worker declared, “I don’t serve cops” — revealed exclusively by The Post.

“The franchisee who owns and operates this restaurant informed us that immediately upon learning of this situation earlier this week, he contacted one of the police officers involved to personally apologize for any negative experience he may have had in his store,” she said.

“The franchisee of the Brooklyn restaurant is meeting with the police officer he spoke to earlier this week in person to hopefully bring this to a satisfactory conclusion for all involved.”

King added: “Dunkin’ Donuts has a long history of supporting local law enforcement and all those who do so much to ensure the safety of our neighborhoods and our country. Our franchisees are committed to serving each and every guest with respect and courtesy.”

King’s statement did not say whether the worker involved in the incident had been disciplined, and did not include the corporate “apology to the NYPD” demanded by detectives union President Michael Palladino, who said he would lead a boycott of Dunkin’ Donuts “until that happens.”

The Sunday afternoon incident at 1993 Atlantic Ave. has also been condemned by Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill.
