Dunkin' Donuts looks to be trying to appeal to more health-conscious consumers. One location in California is changing its name to just Dunkin'.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene with more evidence that health-conscious consumers are a growing market. I mean, if you're running to Dunkin' Donuts, are you still going for donuts? Because you could be coming for coffee or maybe a multigrain bagel. That's what the company thinks. So one location in California will be renamed just Dunkin'. And they say they may make that change elsewhere, too, if one name works. You're listening to MORNING - oh, yeah, MORNING EDITION, at least for now.
