Dunkin’ Donuts Franchise

Dunkin’ Donuts is a franchise for a coffee and donut shop. It was founded by William Rosenberg in 1950 in Quincy, Massachusetts. Its current headquarters is in Canton, Massachusetts.

William initially invested $5,000 to deliver food meals to people in the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts. Because of its success, he opened the “Open Kettle”. And with that concept, he opened the fist Dunkin’ Donuts in Quincy, Massachusetts. He began franchising it in 1963. In 1979, there were more than 1000 locations nationwide. They now have about 8,000 locations in 31 countries and 6,400 of it is in North America. Dunkin’ Donuts is under the Dunkin’ Brand together with Baskin Robbins. They started with just having to compete with Krispy Kreme and Tim Hortons, but now, they are also competing coffee with Starbucks.
