History of Dunkin Donuts

Dunkin Donuts was founded in 1950 by William Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts.  Today in the U.S. Dunkin Donuts is often paired with Baskin-Robbins ice cream shops. While each business has their owner counter the customer can still buy both products from either counter. They find that most of their business competition is from locally operated stores such as Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Starbucks. The Mister Donut stores was bought by Dunkin Donuts and rebranded as Dunkin Donuts. Many Dunkin Donuts stores exist in Canada and are still opening up new franchises every day. The shop offers many good baked products such as:

  • Donuts (52 varieties
  • Éclairs, cop fritters, Bismarck’s, and coffee rolls (9 varieties)
  • Munchkins
  • Stick donuts (Black) (6 varieties)
  • Bagels, Scones, Turnovers
  • Fruit Tarts
  • Muffins, Danish pastry, Cookies, Brownies
  • Coffee’s in flavor, Iced Lattes, Espresso, Turbo, and other hot drinks

There are also Dunkin Delis that offer sandwiches, salads, and soups. It is a real treat to visit your Dunkin Donut shop and enjoy all the fine baked goods and deli foods.
