Dunkin’ Donuts Had A Different Name When It First Opened

Many companies don't necessarily stick with their original names after opening. Take the likes of Chick-fil-A, who began as The Dwarf House and later became the massive name it is today. 

The doughnut giant, Dunkin' Donuts also had a different name when it first started. 

Bill Rosenberg, the founder of Dunkin', started “Open Kettle" in 1948 in Quincy, Massachusetts (since has expanded into a global chain with more than 12,500 restaurants in 46 countries).

Then, an architect working for the restaurant was inspired by the idea of dunking doughnuts into coffee, according to company lore. In 1950, Open Kettle became Dunkin’ Donuts.

Isn't that interesting? That one architect changed the name of one little shop, which eventually became one of the biggest names in the food industry.
