Dunkin' Donuts being renovated in North Station

Claire Blechman shows us the scene in North Station, where a Dunkin' Donuts is getting rebuilt this morning. As she notes, jittery commuters don't have to fret - they just have to walk another 100 feet or so to the station's other Dunkin' Donuts because, after all, this is Boston.

New Dunkin' cups

DNKN? Cross-promotional opportunity with DKNY? More examples.

Dunkin' Donuts announced today it's changin' its name to just Dunkin' - because today's hard-chargin' consumers in this fast-paced world deserve a brand nimble enough to keep up with them, or somethin' like that, in the words of Dunkin' marketers tryin' to upscale a place that for decades has turned a profit selling simple coffee-like beverages and food-like substances to bleary-eyed people just tryin' to get to work: Read more.

The Attleboro Sun Chronicle reports Dunkin' Donuts has been using cups emblazoned with the Philadelphia Eagles logo to serve up iced coffee and tea there.

Panzer immediately reacted, covering up the offending graphic with a Koozie - an insulating cover - with a Patriots logo on it.

Just a logistics mistake, the company - founded in Quincy, of course - swears.

Ice for sale

Freed from the constraints of "donuts," the chain can now offer all sorts of things - like bags of ice. Robert Orthman spotted the sign offering ice this evening outside the still Dunkin' Donuts on Washington Street (the one near Roslindale Square, not the other one).

Just Dunkin'

Workers have been busy on Washington Street near West Roxbury Parkway revamping the drive-up Dunkin' Donuts as a plain Dunkin', part of the chain's longstanding attempts to get us to try more of its non-coffee/non-donuts stuff.

Duke Bennett visits the new Dunkin' (yes, just Dunkin') at 588 Washington St. in Quincy (where Wild Willy's Hamburgers used to be).

In what other state would Dunkin' Donuts coffee figure so prominently in a federal corruption indictment? The lengthy indictment against former state Sen. Brian Joyce features page after page about Dunkin' Donuts coffee - hundreds and hundreds of pounds of the stuff, in bags and boxes and K-cups - that the owner of more than 100 Dunkin' Donuts franchises allegedly gave Joyce in exchange for legislation aimed mainly at protecting the guy from suits over the pooling of employee tips.

WBZ reports a new Dunkin' Donuts at Tremont and West streets is just Dunkin' - because the chain thinks people need to be slapped in the face with a reminder that it serves more than just donuts. Of course, it also serves more than just things that can be dunked, too, so maybe the next step is to just call it Apostrophe.

No, not a Dunkin' Donuts, just a Dunkin', the Quincy Patriot Ledger reports.

Besides the Smoot, that is. Today I discovered that Boston Medical Center is two Dunkin' Donuts down Mass. Ave. from the Orange Line stop - although as Jay Fallon notes:

But only on one side of the street which is unacceptable.
