BravadoGT: Georgia is a northeastern state?
TheXerox: Their donuts are terrible compared to Krispy Kreme, but their rolls and bagels aren't bad. Not a coffee drinker so I can't say anything good/bad about it.
alaric3: Krispy mutha farkin' Kreme.
zamboni: I'm in the deep south and I have one closer to where I live and work than a Krispy Kreme.
jaytkay: Dunkin Donuts is a welcome inexpensive alternative to Starbucks. In the past few years they've been putting Dunkin shops in Chicago L stations, I can't believe they left that opportunity untapped before./ You know Krispy Kreme customers eat frosting from a can with a spoon. You know they do.
StrikitRich: [qzprod.files.wordpress.com image 640x463] Hmm, someone failed at geography.
Lawnchair: The strange thing isn't "the upper plains doesn't have Dunkin" so much as it is "the upper plains just doesn't have donut stores". For instance, there's about a quarter-million people in greater Sioux Falls. There are two small Daylight Donuts franchises in the entire city, which close by 2 in the afternoon. Beyond that, you're down to Casey's gas-station level.It's not like people are unfamiliar with donuts or particularly health conscious. Take a similar-sized, similar demographic city like Saskatoon, and they somehow manage to support 25 Tim Hortons.It just seems like a massive available market and I'm surprised that Dunkin (or Krispy or someone) hasn't taken advantage of it.
bhcompy: Eh, Dunkin was all over years ago in CA, as was Winchells. Both of them failed miserably. Krispy Kreme has closed many locations as well. Do you know why? No one beats the random Korean/Chinese/other immigrant at donuts at the random donut shop in the corner strip mall.
Cormee: alaric3: Krispy mutha farkin' Kreme.Are they the ones with custard in the centre? I spent a summer on Cape Cod eating nothing but them. A long time ago.
FriarReb98: StrikitRich: [qzprod.files.wordpress.com image 640x463] Hmm, someone failed at geography.Partially. While all those states have them, from experience I can say that they're not that good. You can't have coffee get old at a Dunkies inside 495, it's just impossible. I'm sure there are days where a lot of non-northeastern locations wouldn't brew a second or third pot if they didn't have to.It's just a different culture, it just is.
skinink: Was surprised and happy when I was walking in Berlin toward Checkpoint Charlie and along the way I found a Dunkin Donuts. Bitte!
TuteTibiImperes: Heck, Tim's could just move south of the border.
Swampmaster: There is the best Dunkin Doughnuts outside the main Gate at Tung du Chon ( TDC) South Korea... (Home of the 2nd Inf. Div); oh hell ja's... hot and fresh and with all sorts of sprinkles and glazes at 0400 in the morning... all the drunk GI's getting off the civvie bus from the party bars in Seoul... trying to make PT formation. They were delicious! ( 1989, C/1-503!!!)

I'm in NJ right now and the coffee at the local DDs is hit or miss. Mostly miss. Because of the bitterness.They're mostly franchised and run by immigrants, which although they mean well, don't seem to get the fact that you have to constantly clean the DD coffee apparatus, or else get bitter coffee. Some of the franchise stores are quite good, and the coffee tastes fresh, but some are abysmal and make up for the bitter coffee by dumping a pint of cream in with the brew.
