Dunkin’ Donuts is considering keeping the “Dunkin’” and dropping the “Donuts” from its name, according to a report.

The company will test the new name at a Pasadena, Calif. location – followed by other eateries.

Dunkin’ Donuts is the dominant coffee chain in Central New York after Tim Hortons abruptly shut down 15 locations in November 2015.
