Culver City Will Soon Run On Dunkin' Donuts
The Dunkin' Donuts empire continues its western expansion and this time it's setting up shop in Culver City. Let's just hope Ariana Grande doesn't start licking donuts there, too.
The new location of the East Coast-based donut dealer will open sometime soon on the corner of Washington Boulevard and Redwood Avenue, where there was once a California original, Foster's Freeze. The 1,400-square-foot space isn't expected to have enough room for seating, so you'll have to take your Oreo Coolata and chocolate glazed donut to go. That is, unless you are interested in becoming a donut purveyor yourself at the new store, in which case you're welcome to stick around.
If the massive line at the opening of the Santa Monica Dunkin' Donuts is any indication of the Cali-love (or, rather East Coast-transplant-love) for the chain, expect a wait for your morning joe and do(nut). Dunkin' Donuts plans to open somewhere around 1,000 storefronts in the coming years, so don't be surprised if another one pops up down the street from you.
With so many homegrown donut shops here in L.A. (and a million on the way from France), it might be hard to imagine why the masses would go so crazy for the chain. But personal donut preferences can be a hard thing to explain. Being from Boston myself, I can't say I won't stop by the outfit when they open, if only for "research."
