Dunkin 'Donuts is an American fast-food chain with coffee and donuts as its main products .


Dunkin 'Donuts was founded in 1950 by the American William Rosenberg (1916–2002). The first restaurant opened in Quincy , Massachusetts .

Dunkin 'Donuts has been a franchise company since 1955 . There are 11,300 restaurants worldwide (as of March 2016) in 36 countries, including over 8,000 in the USA and over 3,200 others in North and South America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and South Africa. In Australia, the chain opened stores in the 1980s, but all of them closed again in the late 2000s.

From 2018, the chain began a rebranding in the USA to make the branches more attractive to the younger generation. "Donuts" is deleted from the name. In addition, the flavors have been reduced. In the stores that have already been modernized, customers can order the products using their smartphones and pick them up at a pick-up counter.

The first German Dunkin 'Donuts branch opened in Berlin in 1999 .

Branches in Germany

Dunkin 'Donuts branch on Alexanderplatz in Berlin

In Germany, Dunkin 'Brands Deutschland GmbH, based in Frankfurt am Main and headed by Paul Carbone, is the franchisor. In May 2020 there were a total of 59 branches, 13 of them in Berlin .

On August 3, 2017, it became known that two of the franchisees, "S&C International Deutschland GmbH" and "Will Coffee GmbH", had filed for bankruptcy. The reason given was a decline in customers at train stations due to long-distance bus traffic , where a large part of the branches are located, as well as the introduced minimum wage .

In December 2019, a new branch was opened in the expansion area affected by the bankruptcy. It is located in the Paunsdorf Center in Leipzig and already operates under the new DUNKIN brand .
