---- — MANKATO — A Dunkin’ Donuts expansion to Minnesota will include at least one location in the Mankato area, the Star Tribune reported Friday.
The doughnut and coffee chain will be re-entering the state after more than an eight-year absence. It has plans to build about 50 stores in Minnesota, including in Duluth, Rochester and Mankato, the newspaper reported.
Because the company hasn’t yet found franchisees or locations in Minnesota, any restaurant openings are likely to be at least 12 to 18 months away.
