Dunkin' Donuts is coming! Dunkin' Donuts is coming! The first California location for Dunkin' Donuts will reportedly be opening soon, but there's a catch: You need a military I.D., or know someone who has one, to eat there. (And I haven't had a military I.D., sadly, since I graduated from college and was officially no longer an Air Force brat.)
According to CBS Los Angeles, the first California branch of Dunkin' Donuts in over 15 years will open at Camp Pendleton as part of their new base exchange:
MCCS Camp Pendleton Facebook page is already recruiting workers: “Need a Job? Dunkin’ Donuts is Coming to the new Camp Pendleton MCX! Want to be apart of the 1st Dunkin’ in CA? Looking to Hirer Management positions!”
The job posting went up Tuesday, but there is no mention as to when the first California location will reopen.
Dunkin' Donuts' return to California has been rumored for years, most recently in January.
