Dunkin’ Donuts officially removing ‘donuts’ from its name

Local News

The slogan “America Runs on Dunkin” isn’t just a catchphrase anymore. It’s a name change.

Come January, don’t call it ‘Dunkin Donuts.’ You can simply say ‘Dunkin.’

The boson-based chain is dropping Donuts from the name as its focus shifts to more menu items. The company wants the rebranding to highlight its drink options and takeout foods, not just sweet doughy confections.

The name change will be featured on everything from storefronts to packaging and social media accounts.

Some folks aren’t happy with the change.
