In 1950, Bill Rosenberg opened the first Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant in Quincy, Massachusetts. His goal was to “make and serve the freshest, most delicious coffee and donuts quickly and courteously in modern, well-merchandised stores.” It is fifty-six years later, and Dunkin’ Donuts’ customers are still enjoying this brand of coffee and donuts and more!

With more than 11,500 restaurants in 40 countries worldwide, they have earned the No. 1 ranking for customer loyalty in the coffee category by Brand Keys for nine years running!

  • Rosenberg licensed the first of many franchises in 1955.
  • Dunkin’ Donuts still uses the original proprietary coffee blend recipe established by its founder.
