Considering Steve lives in the small town of
Buena Vista, Colorado,
where the nearest Dunkin Donuts is 103 miles away in
Colorado Springs, Steve has taken
advantage of having so many Dunkin Donuts nearby. He is also the webmaster of
an Internet meeting place for Dunkin Donuts enthusiasts.
"I will never take for granted the hundreds and thousands of them all over
the Northeast." he said.
Steve shared his secret about how he visited Dunkin Donuts so often.
"You know how some people are adamant that they can't start their day without
their fresh orange juice, doing Yoga or reading the Bible or something like that?
Well, I made sure I visited a Dunkin Donuts every morning
to start the day right." said Steve.
Steve usually orders a decaf coffee with cream, no sugar with
great flavoring like toasted almond, vanilla spice, blueberry, coconut or cinnamon.
Sometimes he would include a bacon, egg and cheese bagel sandwich with tater tots (photo above) with his daily routine.
Steve denied eating many donuts, although he cited two occasions when
Dunkin Donuts employees gave him a full bag of free donuts during late evening visits,
apparently because he had become such a frequent visitor at one particular shop.

"I am very proud of you. This is quite an accomplishment, something you can tell your grandchildren with pride someday."
said Emily, an ex-Starbucks employee who tried (and liked) her first Dunkin Donuts coffee in her life.
"I want the world to know I'm a Dunkin Donuts man and I'm darned proud!" Steve shouted during the celebration.
"I'll admit I got a little emotional when I was with Emily at the Dunkin Donuts. That's
when the 50 visits really began to set in." explained Steve,
"My eyes became moist, but fortunately I sucked the tears back into my eyeball."
Steve considered doing a "Dunkin Donuts marathon" by visiting 50 Dunkin Donuts shops in a 24 hour stint,
but settled on his regimen of visiting a shop about twice per day. The most he ever visited in one day was five.
