Last month Dunkin’ Donuts announced that they are searching for franchisees in Fresno, Bakersfield, Sacramento and Santa Barbara. In 1950, entrepreneur Bill Rosenberg opened the first Dunkin’ Donuts shop in Quincy, Massachusetts. Dunkin’ Donuts licensed the first of many franchises in 1955. Dunkin’ Donuts is the world’s leading baked goods and coffee chain, serving more than 3 million customers per day from more than 10,000 stores in 32 countries. Thanks to readers Cris and Migt for the tip.
