Dunkin’ Donuts Debuts in Guatemala and India
America runs on Dunkin’ and perhaps Guatemala and India will too now that Dunkin’ Donuts has opened its first doughnut shops in those countries. Dunkin’ Donuts opened its flagship store on the Paseo Miraflores in Guatemala’s capital Thursday and two shops in New Delhi Tuesday.
The new international outposts sell the requisite Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee, tea, doughnuts, bagels, and breakfast sandwiches, along with products customized to accommodate local tastes. In Guatemala, guests can order the Guatemalan Espresso Blend.
In India, some menu items have been inspired by local flavors. Doughnuts you won’t find on the menu in America include mango, Meshy strawberry, and roasted coconut delight ring doughnuts, toffee nougat and Irish mocha center-filled doughnuts, and vanilla bow tie and chocolate éclair doughnut fancies. Locals can wash the doughnuts down with an Alphonso mango fruit milkshake.
India and Guatemala are not the only shops to have regional flavors. Dunkin' Donuts in China has pork doughnuts, for example.
Canton, Mass.-based Dunkin’ Donuts already has more than 250 restaurants in Central and South America, with locations in Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Honduras, Panama, and Peru, and 10,000 restaurants in 33 countries worldwide. The Paseo Miraflores shop is the first of four Dunkin’ Donuts planned to open in the next month in Guatemala, and the company plans to develop 500 restaurants across India over the next 15 years.
