Dunkin Donuts (now renamed to just Dunkin’) began in 1948 with a donut and coffee restaurant in Quincy, Massachusetts called “Open Kettle.” Founder William Rosenberg served donuts for five cents and premium cups of coffee for ten cents. After a brainstorming session with his executives, Rosenberg renamed his restaurant “Dunkin’ Donuts” in 1950.

We performed some analysis of the store data and wanted to present some summary level findings.
Sox vs the Yankees?
Even though Dunkin was started in Massachusetts and has a fanatic following in the state, it does not have the most number of stores in the country. That title goes to the Empire State.
However, pound for pound (of coffee), the Bay state residents guzzle down more Dunkin coffee per resident. New York state has almost 20 million people served by 1483 stores while the smaller Commonwealth of Massachusetts with 7 million people has 1161 stores !
Did you know Wyoming is still to feel much of the Dunkin love – it has just one store. We hope Dunkin is planning to expand and spread the love in that state.
Even Hawaii has 11 stores !
Does America run on Dunkin?
Believe it or not – not all of America runs on Dunkin, there are 7 states that do not have even one Dunkin store
- Washington State (Home of Starbucks)
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
These areas are largely in the Northwest of the country and seem to be firmly in the grasp of the Seattle coffee shops.
