Dunkin’ Donuts to open stores in SoCal

SAN DIEGO — Massachusetts-based Dunkin’ Donuts announced plans Wednesday to open stores in Southern California by 2015.

The coffee and donut chain is looking for franchisees in San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and Orange Counties, according to a company press release.

The company says it plans to open up stores in places like colleges and universities, casinos, military bases, supermarkets and airports.

The doughnut franchise had shops in California until it closed them down in the late 1990s.

Dunkin’ Donuts says its long-term goal is to have 15,000 restaurants nationwide.

      Corporate food chains in Marine Corp bases taste like crap. They are strickly required to have their food altered so the Marines wont get too fat. Don't believe me? Eat at their McDonalds.

        I love Subway Sandwiches on or off base. Always a good deal. The only thing good about Mickey D's is their coffee and their French Fries (fattening). McDonald's makes me fat just looking at the menu. Promise, I won't sue if I gain weight!

    I don't know why people in California are looking forward to Dunkin Donuts. The coffee and pastries are not very good. It's just another corporate chain pushing processed crap. Wait until they proliferate like in Mass. Hot pink and orange logos on every street corner (Yech!!)

    Obviously you are all recent transplants and cannot remember when there were Dunkin Donuts throughout San Diego county. All they are doing is coming back.

      The one in La Mesa on Spring Street was my old haunt. And I think I remember one in Nasty City on Highland or thereabouts.
