Dunkin' Brands Expands in California

Continuing to deliver on a promise first made back in January, Dunkin' Brands (NASDAQ: DNKN  ) announced Monday that it has begun making its move into California.

As outlined in a press release, Dunkin' intends to open 27 new restaurants in North Orange County and the Central Inland Empire. Specifically, existing franchisees Harry Patel and Parag Patel will help Dunkin' develop 18 new stand-alone restaurants in these areas beginning in 2015. New franchisees Jeff Shady and Jordon DiBiase will develop a further eight new stand-alone restaurants in the North Inland Empire, also beginning in 2015. 

The 27th restaurant discussed in the announcement will be a Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins combination unit opening in the Embassy Suites San Diego hotel in 2014.

Commenting on the openings, Dunkin' vice president of franchising and business development, Grant Benson, said in the press release that he was "delighted that Harry and Parag have chosen to grow with us in Southern California," and also "excited to welcome Jeff and Jordon to the Dunkin' Donuts brand."

Further openings are still expected to take place in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Ventura and Orange counties.

I love things that go "boom." Sonic or otherwise, that means I tend to gravitate towards defense and aerospace stocks. But to tell the truth, over the course of a dozen years writing for The Motley Fool, I have covered -- and continue to cover -- everything from retailers to consumer goods stocks, and from tech to banks to insurers as well. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook for the most important developments in defense & aerospace news, and other great stories besides.
