Let’s dive into the world of Dunkin Coffee! With its menu and iconic flavors, we can only be thankful to Bill Rosenberg for what his brainchild has become today.
In his food-selling days, Rosenberg found that coffee and donuts were great hits. Inspired by this knowledge, he set up Open Kettle in 1948 and rebranded to Dunkin Donuts in 1950.
The franchise has since expanded to serve a range of offerings. For this reason, it rebranded to a less exclusive “Dunkin” in 2019.
Today, there are 7 hot coffee staples, five of which have iced counterparts. Sweeteners and seasonal flavors are also available – and these are the things we will be looking into in this article.
