    Dunkin' Donuts will soon add another Southern California location in San Diego to its roster, as the donut shop continues its expansion into the region.

    The business plans to open a shiny new donut restaurant in Downtown San Diego at 225 West Broadway, the former location of NBC 7 San Diego, a spokeswoman for the company confirmed to NBC 7 San Diego. No further details have been released about the Downtown location. 

    Two years ago, Dunkin Donuts announced it planned to open its first traditional restaurants in California over the coming years. This plan included 14 restaurants San Diego County, with the first opening in 2016.

    On Tuesday, the business opened a new, highly anticipated location in National City, complete with a 24-hour drive-thru service. The new storefront is located at 2139 East Plaza Blvd., just off Interstate 805.
