Dunkin’s Run: A Love Story
Since opening the doors of its original shop 60 years ago, Dunkin’ Donuts has grown into an international juggernaut. Here’s why Bostonians don’t hold that against it.
Kussell: Doughnuts are fun food, right? You eat it with your hands, it’s messy, it tastes good. It’s kind of like going to a candy store — you walk the store, you see all the different colors, you pick out the ones you want.
Bryan Rafanelli, Rafanelli Events owner: I often stop on my way to the Cape at the now-defunct Sagamore Bridge rotary and get a red-, white-, and blue- sprinkled doughnut for the ride home.
Larry Bird: I definitely ate the doughnuts. Doesn’t everybody?
Boch: Dunkin’ Donuts is just one of those things that I don’t think you’d miss until it was gone. It’s so reliable; it’s always there. I hope we don’t take it for granted, because it’s hard to imagine a world without it.
