Dunkin' Donuts to add 30 restaurants to region

Dunkin' Donuts announced Tuesday the signing of multi-unit store development agreements with new franchise groups to develop about 30 new restaurants in northern San Diego and parts of Riverside County over the next few years.

New franchise group Burton Restaurants LLC plans to develop 14 outlets in San Diego over the coming years. Led by military veteran Tali Burton, the team includes industry veteran Robert Fox and entrepreneur Ryan Redmond. Their first restaurant is expected to open in 2016.

Also, Mike Stout and Neal Wichard, leaders of a new franchise group that come with extensive restaurant industry experience in California, will develop 16 restaurants in northern San Diego and Southern Inland Empire over the coming years. Their first restaurant is planned to open in 2015.

The locations of the San Diego and Inland Empire restaurants were not immediately available.

Dunkin' Donuts also signed development agreements with two other franchise groups for stores in other parts of Southern California, which brings the total of new restaurants planned to 54.

The company will open its its first traditional restaurants in Downey, Long Beach, Modesto, Santa Monica and Whittier, having filed for permits on these locations.

Since opening California for franchise development in 2013, Dunkin' Donuts has executed store development agreements for nearly 200 new restaurants total to date. The company believes it can eventually have as many as 1,000 restaurants throughout the state, according to a press release. The company has already opened three non-traditional Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in California, including at Camp Pendleton and a recent Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins combination location inside the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay Downtown Hotel.
