The first store was opened in 1950 in Quincy, Massachusetts by Mr. William “Bill” Rosenberg. Mr. Rosenberg had a tremendous amount of experience in selling food in areas where donuts and coffee were the two most popular items for customers. The first franchise was licensed in 1955, five years after the initial restaurant opening. The restaurant was initially named “Open Kettle”. In 1949, it eventually changed its name to “Kettle Donuts”. The restaurant was also known as “Universal Food Systems” during the sixties. The company began to expand rapidly in 1959. In 1963, William Rosenberg’s son, Mr. Robert Rosenberg took over the company.
