Founded in 1950, Dunkin’ Donuts is America’s favorite all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods. With more than 10,000 restaurants in 32 countries, Dunkin’ Donuts global franchisee-reported sales were approximately $6.4 billion in 2011. As the number-one retailer of hot and iced coffee in America, the brand is also a market leader in the donut, bagel, breakfast sandwich, and muffin categories.
Enjoying a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is a daily ritual for millions of people. The company serves approximately 1.5 billion cups of hot and iced coffee every year, and Dunkin’ Donuts’ standards for coffee excellence are among the best in the industry.
Beloved by generations and increasingly recognized by guests around the world, Dunkin’ Donuts prides itself on serving consistently high-quality food and beverages that are fast, fresh, and affordably priced. This brand promise, combined with its healthy and profitable franchisee community, should enable Dunkin’ Donuts to realize its plans to more than double its U.S. presence, expanding to 15,000 restaurants over the next 20 years.
