Dunkin' Donuts to Southern California: No Free Donut For You
Now, Dunkin' Donuts is just taunting us.
We've written countless times about the strange omission of Southern California from the Dunkin' Donuts chain's footprint. Dunkin' was once in SoCal, but apparently felt the market was already saturated by chains like Winchell's and an overabundance of mom-and-pop stores.
They're probably right. And Dunkin's donuts aren't really any better than Winchell's. But we always want what we can't have. So if Dunkin' Donuts refuses to open a store in SoCal, we're gonna make some noise.
And now that they're taunting us on Facebook by inviting us to a FREE DONUT DAY on June 4, something we clearly can't be a part of, I've decided to also invite folks to an imaginary event on the social networking site. It's called I Can't Attend FREE Donut Day Because You Refuse to Open a Store in SoCal. Join in!
And after that, join up with a group on Facebook that someone else has launched, WE WANT A DUNKIN DONUTS IN LA. Dunkin, we will be heard.
