Would Naval Base Coronado be a good venue for Dunkin' Donuts? Could Imperial Beach use another donut shop? Share in comments.

Chief Executive Officer, Dunkin' Brands and President, Dunkin' Donuts U.S. Nigel Travis said, "Expansion to California has always been part of our plan to grow Dunkin' Donuts' presence in the U.S."

The buzz around Dunkin' Donuts opening its first California location at Camp Pendleton led to the base releasing a statement stating it would be difficult for the public to gain access to the base to use the store.
