Cure for America’s fattest city? Let’s double the number of Dunkin’ Donuts!

Speaking of Super Size Me and Detroit being (I’m not sure if it still is or not) America’s fattest city when the movie was filmed…Dunkin’ Donuts recently announced that they will double their presence in metro Detroit over the next 5 years, bringing the total number of franchises to 60. Great — just what we need!

Even more ironic was the following comment in this article, attributed to the company’s current VP of franchising and new business development:

“We have always had a very loyal customer following in the Detroit market.”

    I don’t mind, because on my commute to school every morning, from St Clair Shores to Southfield, there are absolutely no Dunkin’ Donuts between here and there.

    Timmy Ho’s is better anyways.

    it’s funny that you say Tim Horton’s (timmy ho?) is better…i read that the reason Dunkin was expanding was to compete against their growing popularity.

    I’m with you on the Tim Horton’s being better, but when visiting many parts of the country that have been deprived of Tim Horton’s, Dunkin Donuts is a reasonable second.
