As we suspected, Californians didn’t deserve to get Dunkin’ Donut franchises before Minnesota .
First of all, they’re eating the donuts, which these days are a far cry from the iconic “Time to Make the Donuts” days of yore when donuts were made in the store. They’re now frozen and rethawed. Yum.
A true Dunkin’ customer heads straight for the coffee.
Northern Minnesota is reportedly getting half dozen of the franchises. A store in Rochester opened this year. No stores are in the offing for the Twin Cities.
