East coast favorite Dunkin' Donuts has come to San Diego yet again.
The donuts and coffee chain opened its third San Diego-area store location on Monday at Naval Base Medical Center San Diego.
The Commanding Officer of the Naval Base Medical Center was the first to take a sip of coffee during Monday's 6 a.m. grand opening, according to franchise officials.
This store location opening is especially exciting, officials said, because the franchise is led by Major Talisin Buron of the United States Marine Corps Reserve, who served 10 years of active duty, including two wartime deployments.
Dunkin' Donuts announced plans last year to expand the franchise with dozens of new locations all throughout Southern California.
The first Dunkin' Donut shop locale in San Diego is in the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in Oceanside. To make a purchase, civilians must be affiliated with someone with a Department of Defense identification card.
In October, the second donut store opened at the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay Downtown hotel at 601 Pacific Highway.
