by Katie Lee

Canton, Mass. — On September 20, 2016, Dunkin’ Donuts opened its 12,000th restaurant worldwide, in the Greater Los Angeles area in Riverside, Calif. With this milestone location, Dunkin’ Donuts continues its steady and strategic westward expansion, opening more than 30 new restaurants in California with plans for about 300 new locations total to be developed in the state over the coming years.

“We now have 12,000 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants around the world with tremendous opportunities for continued growth both domestically and internationally,” says Nigel Travis, chairman and CEO, Dunkin’ Brands. “Looking ahead, we plan to keep growing and innovating, bringing customers the Dunkin’ Donuts products they love, as well as new offerings like our Cold Brew coffee and new Dunkin’ mobile app, which allows members of our DD Perks rewards program to place their order in advance with on-the-go ordering.”

The new Dunkin’ Donuts location in Riverside is owned and operated by franchisee Parag Patel, who opened two Southern California Dunkin’ Donuts this summer in Villa Park and Yorba Linda. The Patel family has been a part of the Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee community since establishing their first Maryland location in 1989. Patel’s extensive experience in the restaurant industry and personal connection to Dunkin’ Donuts continues to inspire his West Coast expansion efforts as he plans to open about 20 new Riverside and Orange County locations in the coming years.

Founded in 1950, Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 11,900 restaurants in 44 countries worldwide. Based in Canton, Mass., Dunkin’ Donuts is part of the Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. family of companies. For more information, visit www.DunkinDonuts.com
