The coffee and donut powerhouse will be making a huge change the first of next year. Dunkin Donuts' worldwide will be dropping the donuts part of their name! However, if the thought of losing donuts scares you, you'll be happy to hear that they will still be offering donuts at ALL locations.
The change comes as the franchise is more and more commonly known for their coffee and other drinks and snacks. Plus, we all know that we as customers have been referring to the company as "Dunkin" for quite some time now, it's just time that the company embraces it too.
Dunkin shares that this is just one change they will be making to stay relevant in the market and to their customers. The company plans to implement the change in January of 2019 to every location. Dunkin Donuts currently has over 12,500 locations across the globe.
"It’s official: We’re going by Dunkin’ now. 🤗 After 68 years of America running on Dunkin’, we’re moving to a first-name basis. 🧡 Excited to be #BFFstatus with you all 👯♀️☕️🍩 #firstnamebasis#besties"
