Franchising Guide: Dunkin’ Donuts

The Dunkin Donuts story began in 1946 when Mr. William Rosenberg established the Industrial Luncheon Services (ILS) and delivered meals and coffee to factory workers in the area of Boston, Massachusetts. The business was an instant success that in two years time, he was able to open up a coffee and donut shop which he called Open Kettle.

Two years more passed by and he decided to rename the business to Dunkin’ Donuts. Nowadays, the brand has become known as a global icon with over 2,600 stores scattered across more than 30 countries, serving customers both young and young-at-heart.
