She thought that seeing former President Bill Clinton speak on the Quad at UC Davis was the highlight of her day, possibly her week. But when UCD graduate student Krissy Mahan stepped into the downtown Davis Baskin-Robbins store on Tuesday afternoon, little did she know that her day was about to get even more exciting.

“I was on my way to pick up my kids at school,” Mahan noted. “Then I decided to stop by Baskin-Robbins for a cappuccino blast.”

After placing her drink order, Mahan noticed the new Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup display in the store and wandered over. No sooner had she reached the display when store owner Charlie Mitchell and regional operations manager Tom Leeper presented her a large check for $1,000, a year’s supply of Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cups and a Keurig brewer as the winner of the Baskin-Robbins “$1K Giveaway.”

“The giveaway was in celebration of the launch of our Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee K-Cup sales in California,” Mitchell said. “We planned to give away the prize at 3:31 p.m. and Krissy was the first guest to walk through the door.”

Mahan was one of six lucky winners statewide, each of whom claimed the same prize stash.

Dunkin’ Donuts coffee has long been popular on the East Coast; now, with this partnership with select Baskin-Robbins stores throughout the state, Californians will be introduced to the brand.

As for Mahan, a biochemistry Ph.D. candidate, she couldn’t wait to get home and tell her husband and three children all about her big win.

“This is one of the best things that has ever happened to me!” she exclaimed.
