DUNKIN DONUTS IS COMING TO CALIFORNIA!
Did I say that loud enough?
I grew up in Connecticut, and I started drinking coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts when I was in high school and my bus stop was right in front of one of their locations. I’ve been a devotee of the chain ever since, and I visit one whenever I travel into DD territory. My family ships me packages of their coffees. I always hit the DD stand at Bradley International airport on the way back to California after a visit.
I have a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee cup Christmas ornament. There are days when I pine for a DD fresh hot coffee: medium hazelnut regular (with cream and sugar, in East-Coast-speak).
Wednesday on the Dunkin’ Donuts website, CEO Nigel Travis announced the expansion of the franchise into California, with stores planned to open in 2015. Even though that’s still a long way away, when I read this news, I felt faint with excitement.
“We are now actively seeking franchisees to open Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernadino, Ventura and Orange Counties in California,” says Travis.
Which one of you will be the first to open a Dunkin’ Donuts in the Conejo Valley? Tell me. I’ll be your best friend.
