    Dunkin' Donuts Drops the 'Donuts'

    Dunkin' Donuts announced Tuesday that the chain would remove "Donuts" from its name.

    (Published Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018)

    Dunkin' is dropping the donuts - from its name, anyway.

    Doughnuts are still on the menu, but the company is renaming itself "Dunkin'" to reflect its increasing emphasis on coffee and other drinks.

    The change will officially take place in January, when the new name will start appearing on napkins, boxes and signs at its U.S. stores. The name change will eventually be adopted by international stores.

    Dunkin' has more than 12,500 restaurants globally.

    Canton, Massachusetts-based Dunkin' says the name change is one of several things it's doing to stay relevant to younger customers. It's also simplifying its menu and adding dedicated mobile ordering lanes.
