The good news just keeps on coming for donut and coffee fans in Minnesota. On Thursday, Dunkin’ Donuts announced that 10 locations are in the works for the Twin Cities area.
After years of teasing, it sounds like Dunkin’ Donuts is coming to the west metro. The Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal reports the donut and coffee chain is officially entering the Twin Cities market.
First Rochester, now Duluth. The city at the point of Lake Superior is earmarked to be the next location for Dunkin’ Donuts in Minnesota. The first new Minnesota store opened at the Kahler Grand Hotel at 15 First Ave. SW in Rochester last month.
Twin Cities residents who crave the taste of Dunkin’ Donuts pastries, or their equally endorsed coffee drinks, don’t have to drive to Wisconsin any longer. They just have to drive to Rochester. A new Dunkin’ Donuts location just opened in the Kahler Grand Hotel.
What do you think of some egg and sausage wrapped in a waffle with a syrup on the side? Taco Bell is making a big bet you’re willing to try it. Its new Breakfast Waffle Taco and A.M. Crunchwrap are some of the new items available when the chain starts offering breakfast next month.
Dunkin’ Donuts is looking to expand in to Minnesota. The last franchise closed in the late 1990s, but now the shop wants to open about 50 restaurants across the state by the end of next summer. A majority of them would be in the Twin Cities, but other cities, including Duluth, will have locations. Derek Struss is one of the people excited about Dunkin’s return to Minnesota.
It may be the most recognizable donut and coffee chain in America. But it seems like Dunkin’ Donuts is everywhere but here. So, why are some big chains absent from Minnesota?
