I have chosen Dunkin Donuts for my Ethnography of a Coffee House report. Opened in 1948 by William Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts, Mr. Rosenberg named his restaurant “Open Kettle” which at that time served only donuts and coffee. Two years later in 1950, Mr. Rosenberg renamed his restaurant “Dunkin Donuts.” Mr. Rosenberg’s goal was “make and serve the freshest, most delicious coffee and donuts quickly and courteously in modern, well-merchandised stores,” a philosophy which still holds true today (News Dunkin Donuts).

The biggest competitor for Dunkin’ Donuts are Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Starbucks, and McDonalds. In order to maintain market competitiveness Dunkin’ Donuts must remain driven towards service excellence. This starts by hiring staff members that are eager to provide the best customer service with every interaction they have and be able to produce an excellent product. “Dunkin’ Brand offers a comprehensive series of award-winning training programs for crew members, managers and franchises designed to foster deep connections to our brands’ heritage and improve the guest experience and business results at the restaurant level.” (Schmidt,R.A & Oldfield, B.M. 1999) Bill Rosenberg the founder of Dunkin’ Donuts operates by a simple philosophy but one that is carried through each store. “Make and serve the freshest, most delicious coffee and donuts quickly and courteously in modern well-merchandised stores” (Dunkin Donuts, n.d., pp. 1) Being a new district manager tasked with opening five new locations will help fulfill Rosenberg’s vision of providing the best product around in a courteous environment both for staff and customers. This paper will focus on job design, organizational design, recruiting and selecting, training personnel and performance appraisal are key elements in the success of opening five new locations.

As an answer to this problem, the company has implemented several changes aimed at keeping and attracting a new customer base. Many restaurants are looking towards centralized kitchens to maximize space and reduce costs, consequently cutting product costs, thus saving the customer money. The
Dunkin’ Donuts was first established in 1950, in Quincy, Massachusetts, by William Rosenberg. Over the years the company expanded and now is the largest coffee and baked goods chain in the world. They serve over 5,500 retail outlets; selling more than 4 million doughnuts and 2.7 million cups of coffee daily!
Even though Dunkin Donuts is an international business, each individual store has its own set of goals and missions to achieve success. This is also known as the value chain, which is “the process or activities by which a company adds value to an article, including production, marketing, and the provision of after-sales service.” (Oxford) After observing and working for Dunkin Donuts, the business’ success is primarily based off the happiness of their loyal customers and smooth teamwork of their employees. This particular Dunkin Donuts on Western Avenue in Peoria, Illinois is faced with a lot of challenges, but with the right approach to these challenges can make their business even more successful.
