Dunkin' Donuts Moves Closer to Los Angeles
Three years ago, we wrote that new Dunkin' Donuts owners Bain Capital planned a massive expansion of the chain -- which hasn't been seen in Los Angeles in at least 13 years.
We're still waiting to see if Dunkin' makes its way back to L.A. -- but if this NPR report is any indication, the chain plans a massive push into the American Southwest over the next few years.
According to NPR, the "nine new stores in Phoenix is just a start. Dunkin' Donuts has plans for 150 in this (Arizona) area. And 10,000 new stores in the next decade, starting in the Southwest, and then moving toward Starbucks' home territory in the Northwest."
