In 1946, William Rosenberg founded an industry that delivered meals and “coffee break snacks” to customers in the Boston, Massachusetts area. The business was successful and Rosenberg decided to open his first donut cafe called “The Open Kettle”. In 1950, the first Dunkin’ Donuts store was opened in Quincy, Massachusetts.
Five years after the first donut cafe restaurant opened, in 1955, the first franchise was licensed. During the sixties, the restaurant was also known under the name of “Universal Food System”.
At the end of the fifties, the company started to expand in a rapid way, and in 1963 the leadership was taken over by William Rosenberg’s son, Mr. Robert Rosenberg.
The name “Dunkin’ Donuts” was coined in 1968 when the company went public.
Later, in 1990 the chain was bought by Allied Domecq through the purchase of Dunkin’ Brands. After that, it was sold to Ricard S.A. and later to Bain Capital Partners, the Carlyle Group, and Thomas H. Lee Partners.
Nowadays, the company is a subsidiary of the Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. with its headquarters in Canton, Massachusetts.
Dunkin’ Donuts officially changed its name to Dunkin’ at the beginning of 2019.

At Dunkin’ Donuts, Coffee that is not sold within 18 minutes is not considered fresh and is not served anymore. It has to be freshly brewed, ground and served to the customers. Also, in order to make sure that the ice coffee is never watered down and keeps its flavor, the restaurant staff brews the coffee two times before pouring it into units.
The freshness and the flavor of the coffee are ensured by the use of only Arabica coffee beans.
Every second around 60 cups of coffee are sold at Dunkin’ Donuts, which is the equivalent of 2 billion cups sold worldwide yearly.
You will not be able to purchase only one munchkin from the Dunkin Donuts menu and the minimum amount depends on the location. Though, it was reported that you have to buy at least four munchkins.
