The Twin Cities is now home to 10 Dunkin' cafes after the latest opened in Hastings on Thursday morning.
The coffee and donut chain has undergone a revival in Minnesota having disappeared entirely for almost a decade in the state after one lone remaining Dunkin' in Austin closed in 2005.
But it reentered the Minnesota market a few years back, with the new shop at 1207 Vermillion Street in Hastings becoming the 16th Dunkin' in Minnesota.
Oh, if you're wondering why we've dropped the "Donuts" from the name, it's because the company changed its name last September so it's now just known as Dunkin'.
The Hastings restaurant is owned by franchisee Eliasco, which also operates Dunkin' and Baskin-Robbins co-branded restaurants in Eagan and West St. Paul.
And the southeast metro can expect to see more Dunkin' restaurants in the near future, with Eliasco owner Elias Saman planning to add more locations moving forward.
"As both a resident and business owner in the area, I’m proud to serve the people who live and work in Hastings," Saman said in a press release.
"We look forward to becoming an everyday routine for guests looking for high-quality coffee and bakery items. We strive to provide excellent service and quality products at an affordable price, whether dining in the restaurant or using our drive-thru service."
The restaurant will be open 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.
The other Dunkin' locations in the Twin Cities can be found in the following locations:
