Conclusion & recommendations18
Dunkin' Donuts is an international doughnut and coffee retailer founded in 1950 in Quincy, Massachusetts by William Rosenberg. When Dunkin’ Donuts founder Rosenberg opened the first Dunkin’ Donuts, he had a simple philosophy: “Make and serve the freshest, most delicious coffee and donuts quickly and courteously in modern, well-merchandised stores.” While the company originally focused on doughnuts and other baked goods, over half of its business today is in coffee sales; their largest competitors include Krispy Kreme, Starbucks and Tim Horton’s. The point of a Brand is to differentiate itself from other brands the fact that they are faster, cheaper, of higher quality and more efficient than the competitor. We’ve all heard about places with a Starbucks on every corner. There’s even a Starbucks across from a Starbucks. With their popularity and reputation, Starbucks has become most popular coffee chain. However, in the shadow of the corporate giant, another company is on the rise and has been for some time. Dunkin’ Donuts, with much cheaper prices, and sometimes better product, is putting up store after store. More and more people are flocking to them. Advertisements for good coffee at a cheap price can’t be ignored by the masses. Worst of all, their coffee is good The company has more than 10,000 locations in 32 countries worldwide, which include more than 6,700 Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the US and more than 3000 international locations, and with the increasing popularity of their high-quality baked goods and select coffee blends across the country, they plan to add more outlets across the Emirates. Today you can find Dunkin’ Donuts in every single city especially in gas stations, universities, supermarkets, malls, airport, high ways and food courts. And they serve 52 varieties of doughnuts, along with hot and cold coffee drinks, bagels, breakfast sandwiches and other baked goods.
