Dunkin’ Donuts is an American global doughnut company and coffeehouse chain based in Canton, Massachusetts. It was founded in 1950 by William Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts. Since its founding, the company has grown to become the largest coffee and baked goods chain in the world, with 15,000 restaurants in 37 different countries. The chain has grown to include over 1,000 items on their menu, including doughnuts, bagels, other baked goods, and a wide variety of hot and iced beverages. The logo is two Ds side by side in orange and hot pink, placed on a coffee cup next to the words “Dunkin’ Donuts” written in orange and hot pink.
Dunkin’ Donuts is a subsidiary of Dunkin’ Brands, a franchiser of quick service restaurants serving hot and cold coffee and baked goods. Dunkin’ Donuts headquarters is located at 130 Royall St, Canton, Massachusetts, which is also the headquarters for Baskin-Robbins. On December 29, 2012, there were 10,479 Dunkin’ Donuts locations where products were distributed: 7,306 were in the United States and 3,173 were in other countries. Dunkin’ Donuts is continuing to grow by adding more locations around the U.S. In July 2013, Dunkin’ Donuts opened its 500th restaurant in New York City. This location is combined with a Baskin-Robbins restaurant. Dunkin’ Donuts expanded to the west coast of the United States. The company has agreed to open 18 restaurants in Orange County, California in 2015. There will also be eight restaurants developed in North Inland Empire, California, with the first location opening 2015. This figure compares with the 17,009 stores of coffee chain Starbucks. Nearly all of Dunkin’ Donuts locations are franchisee owned and operated. In the U.S., there are only 78 franchisees west of the Mississippi River, mostly in Iowa, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas.
In the past decade, Dunkin’ Donuts has opened many shops in both the Phoenix and Las Vegas metropolitan areas. As of 2013, there was one store in California, where the company is expecting to open upwards of 1,000 stores starting in 2015. Within its Northeast home base, however, Dunkin’ Donuts is very popular, and particularly dominant within New England. In addition to its stand-alone shops, Dunkin’ Donuts shops can be found in many gas stations, supermarkets, mall and airport food courts, and Walmart stores.
In the United States, Dunkin’ Donuts is sometimes paired with Baskin-Robbins ice cream shops. While such locations usually have two counters set up for each chain (much like the Wendy’s/Tim Hortons co-branded locations in Canada), depending on business that day, both products can be bought at the same counter (usually the Dunkin’ counter), much like the Yum! Brands stores.
In Brazil, Dunkin’ Donuts opened its first building in 1980. Most ended up closing the network through the points for the company Café Donuts. In 2013, it plans to open 25 franchises in the country.
