This past December marked an exciting milestone in the history Dunkin’ Brands, the parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, having opened its 20,000th location globally. It would have been hard to imagine when the brands were first founded in 1950 and 1945, respectively, the role each would play in the daily lives of so many people around the world.
