More than two dozen new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants are in development for San Diego County, the company announced Tuesday.
New franchise group Burton Restaurants, LLC plans to develop 14 restaurants in San Diego and Mike Stout and Neal Wichard plan to develop 16 restaurants in North County and Southern Inland Empire, according to a Dunkin’ Donuts corporate news release.
They are part of 54 new restaurants slated to be opened throughout Southern California as part of franchise agreements.
The first San Diego restaurant could open by 2015.
Since opening California for franchise development in 2013, Dunkin’ Donuts has three sites in California including the one inside the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay hotel in downtown San Diego.
They say they have agreements to develop nearly 200 new restaurants.
In a written release Paul Twohig, President, Dunkin' Donuts U.S. and Canada, and Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Europe and Latin America said, “We look forward to keeping Californians running on our brand’s high-quality coffee, sandwiches and baked goods.”
