Dunkin’ Donuts

When you think delicious pastries and excellent coffee, the first name that comes to mind is the Dunkin’ Donuts franchise. Since it was founded in 1950 Dunkin’ Donuts has become the automatic morning stop for millions of coffee and doughnut lovers in America and around the world, with more than 10,000 shops in the U.S. and more than 32 other countries. Though it started out and built its reputation on great doughnuts and fine coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts has become much more than that in its 60-plus years, having expanded its menu to delicious muffins, bagels and croissants, and even hearty sandwiches for the lunchtime crowd.

Dunkin Franchise ResalesIn 1946, Bill Rosenberg founded Industrial Luncheon Services, a company that delivered meals and snacks to workers in the Boston area. The success of Industrial Luncheon Services convinced Rosenberg to start The Open Kettle, a doughnut shop in Quincy, Massachusetts. Two years later, The Open Kettle changed its name to Dunkin' Donuts.Today, Dunkin' Donuts stores can be found in over 32 countries, and they serve 70 varieties of doughnuts, along with hot and cold coffee drinks, bagels, breakfast sandwiches and other baked goods. Dunkin' Donuts parent company, Dunkin' Brands Inc., also franchises Baskin-Robbins, and the two concepts are sometimes co-branded.
