"There are approximately 20 Dunkin’ locations in Russia, all of which are owned and operated by a local, independent franchise owner.

Jamaica Plain News contacted Dunkin' to ask if the company would be ceasing or continuing operations in Russia.


Will Jamaica Plain Get a Fifth Dunkin’?

There are currently only four Dunkin' (you know, we used to call them Dunkin' Donuts) in Jamaica Plain. And there's a possibility that a fourth one is coming to the neighborhood in the near future. Jes Donuts, Inc., a Dunkin' franchisee, is scheduled to appear at the Boston Licensing Board to open a new restaurant at 37 S. Huntington Ave. The desired hours of operation are from 5 am to 9 pm, according to a public notice on Boston.gov.

If approved, it would be the fourth Dunkin' in Jamaica Plain, and join the franchise stores at 315 Centre St., 684 Centre St., 757 Centre St., and 7 Walk Hill St. This was first reported by Universalhub.com.
