Dunkin’ Donuts is opening restaurants at 10 university campuses

Dunkin’ Donuts, a coffee-and-baked-goods chain that is engaged in a big expansion program, said Wednesday that it has either opened or is about to open restaurants at 10 college campuses across the United States.

Restaurants are about to open at the University of Baltimore, Montclair State University, and Virginia Tech, among others, Canton-based Dunkin’ Donuts said.

With more than 7,000 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the United States, the company has plans to more than double its current number of US restaurants over the next 20 years. Partly to achieve this goal, Dunkin’ is opening stores in such non-traditional locations as universities, airports, hotels, sports stadiums, and amusement parks.

In 2011, Dunkin’ Donuts’ restaurants had global franchisee-reported sales of $6.4 billion.
