Dunkin’ Donuts opens new outlet in Santa Monica, California

Expanding its reach further, East Coast staple Dunkin' Donuts on Tuesday opened a new shop in Santa Monica, Southern California.

The new shop, opened on Wilshire Boulevard, is the Canton, Massachusetts-based doughnut company's first conventional shop in the Southland. The coffee-&-doughnut company has plans to open as many as 200 stores in the Golden State in the next few years.

Paul Twohig, president of U. S. and Canada businesses of Dunkin' Donuts, said people in the Los Angeles area had been asking the company for a Dunkin' Donuts outlet for many years.

Speaking about the opening of the new shop, Twohig added, "We're certain Dunkin' Donuts will quickly become an integral part of Angelenos' daily routine."

Dunkin' Donuts had nearly a dozen of outlets in the Golden State before it pulled out in the late 1990s. Then, it made a short-term comeback in Sacramento in 2002.

Apart from the new outlet in Santa Monica, it is operating what it calls nontraditional shops in areas like Camp Pendleton, the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay Downtown and the Barstow Station close to Interstate 15. In the coming months, the company will open outlets in Long Beach, Downey, Modesto and Whittier.

Founded in 1950 by William Rosenberg, Dunkin' Donuts now operates nearly 11,000 outlets in 33 different countries.
