The familiar East Coast coffee and doughnut chain, Dunkin’ Donuts, is opening its first Northern California shop in Modesto in coming weeks, but don’t expect Turlock to be next.
In March, it was reported that Dunkin’ Donuts was planning on opening 46 new locations in the Modesto, Stockton, and Sacramento areas. At the time, exact locations had not been confirmed.
The first location in the area, at 1320 Standiford Ave., will open its doors on Aug. 26 at 5 a.m.
While the first the Dunkin’ Donuts shop is opening in Northern California, a Turlock location doesn’t seem to be happening in the near future.
“There are no plans at this time for Turlock, but we will continue to develop restaurants in the Sacramento/Modesto region in the coming years,” said Justin Drake, Dunkin’ Donuts Public Relations Manager.
The franchisee, Sizzling Donuts, LLC, announced that it has plans to open more than 100 locations in the Western U.S. over the next two years.
Sizzling Donuts, LLC also owns Little Caesars, Sizzler, and Red Robin restaurants.
