Coffee And Dunkin’ Brands


When it comes to coffee, I prefer the product offered by Dunkin’ Donuts. Dunkin’ Brands Group (DNKN). My preference is a matter of personal taste, but I also appreciate the wider selection of products more appealing. A trip to Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) is more of a social event, and more locations offer the brand. I consider myself lucky that the closest coffee shop to where I live is a Dunkin’ Donuts. However, even if I had to travel a bit longer, I would still find my way to the shop that offers those delicious Boston Crème donuts to go along with the Arabica blend of coffee that suits my palate.

Starbucks has a higher profile than Dunkin’, and that is likely to rise with the founder pondering a run for the White House in 2020.
