Dunkin' Donuts has 7,300 U.S. locations (with just 31 company-owned stores). The company is looking to recruit franchisees for Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Ventura and Orange counties. It expects the first of the new stores to open in 2015.
While the California Dunkin' stores are getting much fanfare, the plan is a continuation of the steady expansion that the Canton, Mass.-based franchisor has been making from coast to coast. This year, Dunkin' Donuts plans to open as many as 360 stores in the U.S., on top of the 150 net U.S. new locations in 2012, fitting in with its goal of ultimately being an organization of more than 15,000 Dunkin' stores. The company has a global total of roughly 10,400 locations (excluding those in the Baskin-Robbins ice cream brand, which it owns).
