Living in Los Angeles just got a whole lot better. Dunkin Donuts is planning a major expansion into Southern California, meaning the donut and coffee shop is coming soon to a location near you!
No doubt you’ve seen their coffee at your local supermarket. But what you haven’t seen is a bona fide Dunkin’ Donuts shop in LA. That, however, will be changing shortly.
CEO Nigel Travis issued a statement earlier today on the official Dunkin’ Donuts website, stating his intentions to invade SoCal:
Today is an extremely happy and momentous day for our brand, as I have the privilege of making the long-awaited announcement that Dunkin’ Donuts will in fact be expanding into Southern California.
The press release continues, saying:
We are absolutely thrilled to be coming to California. Expansion to the West Coast has always been part of our growth plans, and we’ve always said that we will enter California when the timing is right and when the infrastructure is in place to help our franchisees be successful. We believe we have reached that point today.
Well Hallelujah! Expect the first of several stores to open in 2015. Franchises are planned in LA, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Ventura, Orange Counties, and (fingers crossed) right next door to JACK FM.
