Dunkin' Donuts

After years of having to travel out-state for a Dunkin' Donuts fix, the fried dough and coffee chain will soon be within reach. The restaurants will be run by two franchisee companies.  Kod Kod Enterprises, LLC will open twelve restaurants mostly in the northern Minneapolis suburbs and the Saint Cloud area. The first of those restaurants is expected to open in 2017.

According to a press release, the other franchisee company, VANTive Group, LLC will open open 12 restaurants in the "eastern Minneapolis area." We wonder if that means "Saint Paul." The first restaurant from that company will also open in 2017.

As of right now, the only Dunkin Donuts in Minnesota is in Rochester.
