In 1950, William Rosenberg had an epiphany. After creating a delightful range of donuts for the people of Massachusetts, he realized that everyone loved to dunk them in their coffee. The delicious combination of donuts and coffee became an experience to savory, and people kept coming back for more. Inspired by this phenomenon, Rosenberg made it his mission to offer the best quality coffee he could find. This took his business to a whole new level and Dunkin’ Donuts was born:
