Two updates[edit]

- I think a section called "founding years" should entail max. the first 20% of a company's history, but here it's more than 50%

- The 2012 map in the section "locations" need updating, for example DD is now present in Switzerland (talk) 14:46, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The History section should be re-sectioned. In addition to the problem you noted, calling post-2004 "Success years in management" seems like an unnecessary insult to Bob, who grew the company from 100 locations to 6500. That's a 65x increase, as opposed to the 2x increase of the "success years". GA-RT-22 (talk) 20:10, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 23 May 2023[edit]

I would kindly request that the "Locations" subsection be updated to reflect that Dunkin' operates a significant number of locations here in Germany. As quoted in German from their own German website:

"Dunkin' opened their first location in Germany in 1999. The first store opened in Berlin. A dozen are located here alone. Numerous locations are located throughout Germany. According to the German Wikipedia, the 100th location was opened in Berlin-Henningsdorf in November 2022. As of January 2022, there were 66 locations across Germany with the majority of stores being located in: Berlin (17 locations), Bavaria (15 locations) and Northrhine-Westphalia (12 locations).

You'll have better luck with this if you follow the instructions. Also note that Wikipedia is not a source. GA-RT-22 (talk) 15:45, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Please note that reliable sources should also be independent. voorts (talk/contributions) 01:50, 25 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Official web site[edit]

The official web site should be removed from the infobox and the EL section per point 7 of WP:ELNO: "Sites that are inaccessible to a substantial number of users, such as sites that work only ... in a specific country." I don't know where the site is accessible, but it appears to be inaccessible in countries where the company has no presence, which would certainly be the majority of the world.

  • Don’t you think the lead sentence of this section Except for a link to an official page of the article's subject, one should generally avoid providing external links to: categorically makes your request moot? Mike Cline (talk) 15:55, 25 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Map corrections[edit]

Hello, As far as I can tell, Dunkin' Donuts has locations in the Netherlands, I can find locations on Google Maps [1], a .nl version of the website [2], and videos of people visiting them [3]

I wanted to create this category for other potential map mistakes. lemongrasscap (talk) 09:04, 27 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
