Dunn's Famous, the Montreal delicatessen founded by Myer Dunn in 1927, has a new logo, a new website, a new social media focus, and a new vice-president. "I am humbled to be given this role at Dunn’s, and hope to influence this company in a positive direction," declared Andrew Kligman, great-grandson of Myer Dunn, in a company statement. "The challenge will be to preserve our history and tradition, while trying to stay relevant in today’s fast-paced industry. I have a great role model in my father [Elliot, president of Dunn's], who is guiding me to make the right decisions."
What Kligman calls 'Dunn's 2.0' will not only include tweets and status updates, but a beefed up line of retail products, for sale at the likes of Costco. Also, more restaurants, though specifics have yet to be ironed out. The current Dunn's roster of franchises (known as 'full service, casual dining family owned deli & neighbourhood eatery concepts') includes five restaurants in greater Montreal, and one in Vancouver.
