No one can outgrow the love for Dunkin’ Donuts. In fact, I have been craving for donuts and have been searching for stores online. Just by looking at photos of various donuts, my cravings became even stronger. But as soon I as saw the familiar orange and pink logo with coffee on the side, I knew I wanted to eat at Dunkin’ Donuts.
Meals and Coffee
In 1946, William Rosenberg founded the Industrial Luncheon Services (ILS) with the goal to deliver meals and coffee to factory workers in the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts. Due to the positive response, the business became a success that he decided to open his first coffee and donut shop. The shop which he named, “Open Kettle” opened its doors in 1948.
Later in 1950, Rosenberg changed the name of his coffee and donut shop to “Dunkin’ Donuts”. Apart from the change in name, Dunkin’ Donuts increased its popularity due to their quality products resulting to higher sales.
Dunkin’ Donuts became (and still is) the world’s leading donuts, baked goods and coffee chain that sells more than 1 billion cups of coffee per year! Since 1950, with over 2,600 stores in more than 30 countries, Dunkin’ Donuts has been serving loyal customers around the globe.
It was in 1981 when Dunkin’ Donuts served Filipinos at the Quad Car Park (now Park Square) in Makati. Even after how many years, Dunkin’ Donuts is still a part of Filipinos’ lives dubbing the donuts, baked goods and coffee chain as, Ang Pasalubong ng Bayan!
Pasalubong (a present usually given by one arriving from a short/ long trip)
I love donuts especially the ones from Dunkin’. As years passed by, they create different flavors and add new creations to their menu. To fulfill my craving, I checked for a store near us. Unfortunately, there isn’t. Well actually, there is but it’s a just a kiosk and it does not serve everything in their menu.
I’m glad I remembered seeing a poster that says, “Dunkin’ Delivers”. So I checked their number online and dialed 988 7288. Dunkin’ Delivery is available in selected areas in Quezon City, Pasig City, San Juan City, Mandaluyong City and Makati City from 9am to 6pm.
I wanted to ordered donuts, but I saw other choices. So we decided to order the following instead.
I ate my Tuna Salad Croissant first and my Choco Candy Sprinkle Classic Donut last. Let me tell you, you can’t outgrow your love for Dunkin’ Donuts. The first bite reminded me of the days wherein my grandfather brings home a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts as pasalubong from work. Those were the days. Anyway, I can buy my own now, so all is well. 🙂
By the way, below is my favorite Dunkin’ Donuts commercial.
Dunkin Donuts, itong pasalubong ng bayan. Freshly made donuts, iba’t ibang pagpipilian. Dunkin Donuts, hinihintay ng buong pamilya. Basta’t uwian na, wag kalimutan na mag-Dunkin bai!
