When we were in Eastern Europe a couple of years ago, we noticed that a lot of American food has made its way over: from burgers to burritos to American-style coffee to dreck like KFC. One thing was missing, though: doughnuts!
Perhaps this is an opening, we thought. Perhaps we can introduce the locals to doughy American goodness. Perhaps we can quit our job and use our American know-how to become the Dunkin Donuts of Eastern Europe! Just like DD, we can start in one location, and spread our reach from city to city, country to country, become ubiquitous! (Here is where we mention that Dunkin Donuts was founded by William Rosenberg, Jew.)
We didn't go into the doughnut business, of course. Sanity prevailed. And when we returned to Eastern Europe this year, there now was at least one doughnut shop. It was called "American Donuts".
