About Dunkin' Donuts

Dunkin' Donuts is an international doughnut and coffee retailer founded in 1950 by William Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts; it is now headquartered in Canton. While the company originally focused on doughnuts and other baked goods, over half of its business today is in coffee sales, making it more of a competitor to Starbucks than to more traditional competitors such as Krispy Kreme. The company has opened more than 10,000 locations in 32 countries worldwide , which include more than 6,700 Dunkin Donuts locations throughout the United States and more than 3000 international locations. This figure compares with the 17,009 stores of coffee chain Starbucks, whose baked goods are usually prepared out of shop. Nearly all of Dunkin' Donuts locations are franchisee owned and operated. Only 75 franchisees exist west of the Mississippi River, mostly in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas.
