Nigel Travis, the CEO of Dunkin' Donuts, admitted that he, like many sad coffee drinkers on the West Coast, often wonders when the chain will open in California. The answer, he said in a blog post on the company's website, is 2015. Locations will open in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernadino, Ventura, and Orange Counties. Travis said, "Some big-name celebrities have even made pleas on national TV for us to bring our famous coffee to Hollywood." Judging by Twitter reactions, almost everyone is super stoked for the chain's growth too.

Aside from strip malls, the company is looking to open locations in "non-traditional venues" like college and university campuses, military bases, airports, and casinos. Munchkins for all the students, generals, travelers, and late night gamblers!
