Dunkin’ Donuts’ current slogan is “America Runs On Dunkin'”. In March 2009, the company unveiled the alternate slogan “You ‘Kin Do It!” and launched a $100 million ad campaign promotion. Dunkin’ Donuts’ “It’s Worth the Trip” campaign starred sleepy-eyed “Fred the Baker” and featured the catchphrase “Time to make the donuts”. It won honors from the Television Bureau of Advertising as one of the five best television advertisements of the 1980s. Fred the Baker was played by actor Michael Vale for 15 years until his retirement in 1997. The catchphrase was used in the title of founder William Rosenberg’s autobiography Time to Make the Donuts: The Founder of Dunkin’ Donuts Shares an American Journey.
