Dunkin Donut coffee drinkers converge on a hill, carrying briefcases, tires, parcels, laundry baskets, ladders, babies and donuts. “More people get their coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts than anywhere else. For fifty years it’s been brewed fresh to keep you running at your best. No matter what uphill battle you’re facing, America runs on Dunkin'”
