About William Rosenberg:
William Rosenberg was born on June 10, 1916 in Dorchester, Massachusetts. He left school at age 14 to help support his family during the Depression, and after World War II founded Industrial Luncheon Services, a catering service run from converted telephone trucks that served coffee and snacks to Boston-area factory workers during their breaks. The business grew rapidly and branched out to include vending machines and in-plant cafeterias.
Noticing that coffee and doughnuts amounted to 40% of his total sales, Rosenberg opened his first doughnut shop, the Open Kettle in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1948. Open Kettle changed its name to Dunkin’ Donuts in 1950 and operated inside a former awning store in Quincy, Massachusetts. Five years later, Dunkin’ Donuts signed its first franchise agreement. Rosenberg’s partner, Harry Winokur, was against this idea, so Rosenberg bought him out. Today Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 5000 franchises worldwide. Ironically, Harry Winokur went on to found Mister Donut and its franchises.
Around 1960, Rosenberg opened a burger chain, Howdy Beefburger, and placed these stores in the same location as his Dunkin Donut shops in a shared parking lot in order to better compete for property with the larger chains, such as McDonalds and Exxon.
In 1963, Rosenberg handed over the presidency of Dunkin’ Donuts to his son Robert, but he stayed on as chairman of the board and remained a vital influence on the company. Dunkin’ Donuts went public in the late 1960s, and the first overseas shop opened in Japan in 1970. In 1988, Rosenberg retired from his position with Dunkin’ Donuts, but continued as a consultant to the company. Allied Domecq PLC bought Dunkin’ Donuts in 1990, but sold it to Dunkin Brands, Inc. in December 2005 (See Wikipedia).
In 1959, Rosenberg had the idea of starting the International Franchise Association (IFA) while attending a franchising convention in Chicago. He and Jack Alpert, a fellow convention attendee, put together the IFA’s by-laws. At the time, franchising was in its infancy and faced the threat of being legislated out of existence. With the efforts of the IFA, franchising grew and flourished. In the 1980s, Rosenberg would have a strong hand in establishing the IFA’s Education Foundation.
In the late 1960s, Rosenberg became interested in harness racing. In 1968 he purchased Wilrose Farms in East Kingston, NH and set about buying and breeding Standardbred horses. His horses won many important races and sold for record-breaking prices, but in 1976, he sold the entire stock of the farm’s horses although he continued to invest in horses. In the early 1970s, he began a campaign for a Sire Stakes program in New Hampshire. The bill for this program was passed by the NH state legislature in the winter of 1974. Rosenberg helped to found the International Horse Racing Association in the 1980s.
In 1980 Rosenberg donated Wilrose Farm to the University of New Hampshire. The farm was sold 14 years later and the university dedicated a chair in Franchising and Entrepreneurship in Rosenberg’s name, and then in the fall of 2002 launched the William Rosenberg International Center of Franchising.
Rosenberg suffered from many forms of cancer. In 1976, he was diagnosed with lymphoma. He underwent radiation treatment under Dr. George Canellos at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and fully recovered. In 1988, the William Rosenberg Professorship in Medicine at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School was established with the support of the William Rosenberg Family Foundation. Dr. Canellos became the first doctor to hold that professorship.
William Rosenberg was married twice. On April 29, 1937, he married Bertha “Bookie” and they had three children, Robert, Carol and Donald. In the late 1960s, Bill and Bookie separated and later divorced. Bill married Ann Aluisy of Farmington, NH on June 24, 1978. Rosenberg’s autobiography, Time to Make the Donuts, was published in 2001.
On September 20, 2002, William Rosenberg died at his home in Mashpee, Massachusetts.
About the William Rosenberg Collection:
The bulk of the William Rosenberg Collection contains newspaper and magazine clippings and photographs collected by him, business associates and family members. The clippings and photographs chronicle the operations of Industrial Luncheon Services, Dunkin’ Donuts, the International Franchise Association, Wilrose Farm and harness racing. Included is a photo-chronicle of Bill’s and his wife Ann’s 1982 six week trip to Asia to survey Dunkin’ Donuts stores there. The highlight of the collection is an original draft of the IFA’s by-laws with hand-written notes and comments by William Rosenberg.
