A History of Dunkin Donuts

Dunkin's familiar, predictable, comfortably mediocre. A welcome sign to see on a cold, sleety night of driving in the middle of nowhere. A Dunkin franchise is a cash cow for the franchisee. I know a Greek immigrant who now owns five of them. He's rich. He is fortunate in having aloyal, smart, and pleasant mostly-Hispanic staff. -- Bird Dog @ Maggie's Farm

Your Say

If they ever open a Dunkin' Donuts in Havana, those same cars will be parked out front.

My guess is that they'll have Dunkin' Donuts in Havana before they get them in California.

I've been in my share of "Drunkin' Donuts" over the years. They even have them in Indonesia, lots of them. But the durian-flavored donuts are definitely an acquired taste, one I never had any interest in acquiring. Give me "honey-dipped" (glazed) any time.

I can't say I'm a connoisseur, but the oddest Dunkin' Donuts I've seen is the combination DD/Sushi shop in Boston. I've often wondered: What came first? The donuts or the sushi? And why would you think you could combine them?
