The Tasty Group LLC plans to develop two Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Santa Barbara and eight restaurants throughout Ventura County over the coming years, with the first restaurant expected to open in 2016. Previously there was just one Santa Barbara location in the works.

Founded in 1950, Dunkin’ Donuts has nearly 11,000 restaurants in 33 countries worldwide. Based in Canton, Mass., Dunkin’ Donuts is part of the Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. family of companies. For more information, visit DunkinDonuts.com.

    You just made my day – I LOVE their coffee, and my brewer doesn’t reach a high enough temperature to brew the way they do!

    Very un-exciting news. Woo hoo! Corporate “food.” And yes, I enjoy a doughnut four or five times a year.

    Somehow, I don’t thnk the folks at Spudnuts are going to lose any sleep over this. Nor should they. Dunkin’ Donuts is just another donut chain. Nothing special. But probably a novelty for Californians who have only heard about it.

    Speaking of coffee…

    If any of you 1) brew your own and 2) visit Yosemite: try stopping in at the ‘Mariposa Coffee Company.’ The master roaster roasts on site and prepares many straight and flavored choices, beans or ground. Runs about $8.95/pound. Unanimous thumbs up from all who’ve been there.

    My wife and I found the place several years ago and now our photographic prints and greeting cards are displayed in their gallery (old stage coach location.)

    Between Oakhurst and Mariposa on Rt. 49.
