There used to be a few Dunkin Donuts stands where I lived in So Cal. But those largely went out of business in the mid 90's. Are there any Dunkin Donuts stands on the West Coast?

My friend lives in Eastern Orange County, CA and she says there is only one near her house. I don't know how near her version of near is, if you know what I mean, but compared to my NJ town of about 25,000, which has 3 Dunkins in it alone, I would say they're lacking in the Dunkin department out at least in her area of CA. She also said they're opening another one kind of close to her house, but it's quite a drive to just go and get coffee.

She says that Southern California doesn't have a lot of Dunkins at all, but since she moved to New York part time, she wishes they would open more because she likes DD's bagels and coffees so much.

They're popping up left and right around metro Phoenix. Not sure if that falls into your definition of "West Coast!"

Northeasterners seem to love Dunkin' Donuts for their supposedly good coffee, but it just doesn't seem to have the same popularity on this side of the country.

There are companies bidding for franchise rights. Expect to see a few shops opening in SoCal by the end of the year.

There is a donut shop on Brookhurst Avenue in Huntington Beach that used to be a Dunkin Donuts about 15-20 years ago. Their donuts are still very similar to Dunkin Donuts.

There are only about 6-7 Dunkin' Donuts in Tucson, AZ.

Family-owned donut shops, Winchell's, and other chains are more popular.

Yep. Also the "mom and pop" doughnut shops make better doughnuts than the chain ones. Much better quality.

I've seen a few of them in Arizona, but that's about it. I live in Massachusetts where the headquarters are. Frankly I don't see what anyone see's in the chain. There are so many here, its really a disgrace. There are at least 2 or 3 every mile or so. It's no wonder so many obese people live here. It makes me sick here to see so many obese people sitting around eating DD. Even the sports arena in Providence, RI is named the Dunkin Donuts Center. It's as if DD is the patron saint of New England. You can't escape Dunkin Donuts here, but I just can't see the market for them in California. Different type of population, although I imagine DD would get some customers on the West Coast. Especially those prone to that type of diet. I have only been to them a few times in my entire life.
