Every day, over two billion cups of coffee are consumed globally. This staple drink not only boosts mood and helps increase productivity but also serves as a socialization tool, with countless individuals hanging out with others and talking over a steaming cup of cappuccino or a cold brew. From towns to major cities, the United States is home to numerous roasters, family businesses, and chains. Among the powerhouses that currently dominate the coffee industry is Dunkin’, a multinational donut and coffee establishment founded by William Rosenberg in 1950. Over fifty years after its launch, it continues to rise in relevance worldwide.
What once started as a single donut shop in Quincy, Massachusetts, is now a powerhouse with over 9,800 shops. While Dunkin’ managed to take center stage for its tasty donuts, its signature coffee propelled this widely acclaimed venture to greater heights. In 2019, its supremacy in the rest of the food industry was reflected in its move to rebrand, and the name change was intended as a nod to its expansion and the diversification of its food selection. “By simplifying and modernizing our name while still paying homage to our heritage, we have an opportunity to create an incredible new energy for Dunkin’, both in and outside our stores,” the strategic mind behind this mogul shared in a release.
Today, Dunkin’ stands as a go-to destination for millions of coffee lovers and people in need of a pick-me-up. Driven to provide a consistently smooth and delicious cup of high-quality coffee, it upped its game by introducing espresso to its inventory of offerings in 2003. Five years later, it captured the patronage and loyalty of a new wave of caffeine drinkers when it dropped a reformulated recipe in 2018.
In recent years, Dunkin’ succeeded in solidifying its reputation even more solidly by being the brand of choice for many influencers, high-profile personalities, and celebrities. Youtube vloggers, whose ability to guide viewers’ purchase decisions is beyond remarkable, are often seen on their videos driving to the nearest Dunkin’ store and choosing from its expansive selection. The 2020 World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers has recently announced that this long-running company is now the franchise’s official coffee and donut partner under a multi-year collaboration.
Offering coffee at a competitive price does not translate to subpar drinks in the case of Dunkin’. Its coffee is ground and brewed from 100% Arabica beans, ensuring that every customer is provided with a fresh taste with every sip. With more branches set to appear all over the world in the future, the coffee industry leader is bound to remain at the forefront.
In the coming years, Dunkin’ looks forward to capitalizing on advancements in technology, using new espresso machines, and perfecting its recipe to offer nothing but the best to customers. Armed with ambitious plans, it assures drinkers globally that it will serve the coffee they know and love in a wider variety of formats, blends, and flavors.
