1,100 Dunkin’ Donuts within a 50-mile radius of Boston

by Aaron

Did you know there are over 1,100 Dunkin’ Donuts within a 50-mile radius of the city of Boston?

The first question most people ask is: Why? Why why why why why? It doesn’t make sense. However, what you probably never knew is that Dunkin’ Donuts originated in Boston. That’s the reason it’s so popular and so well-received.

It’s a known fact that communities will tend to stand by a business that started in their hometown than businesses from outside the area even if the products are better. In the last few years, Krispy Kreme tried building a few stores in the Boston area. It didn’t go too well. Even though Krispy Kreme’s donuts may have been better, Bostoners stuck with their heritage.

Something to keep in mind if you ever try to start a business :)
