Dunkin' Donuts (MGN)

Dunkin' Donuts is hoping a streamlined menu will mean faster service.

The company says it is testing a simplified menu in a limited number of markets starting Aug. 7. Providence is one of them.

"As part of this test, we will be removing a small number of menu items," Dunkin' Donuts said in a statement to NBC 10 News. "Our intent is to simplify the current menu to reduce complexity and enhance speed of service and in-store operations."

The company tweeted that classics like the bacon, egg and cheese on a croissant are staying on the menu.

Some of the items to be removed: all afternoon sandwiches; honey bran raisin and reduced-fat blueberry muffins; seven varieties of bagels; all bagel twists; and danishes, cookies and brownies.

Dunkin' Donuts said it will use feedback from customers, franchisees and employees to help guide future menu decisions.
