Coffee and doughnuts are a nice way to start the day, and one doughnut-maker is coming back to California after years away.
It was back in the late '90s that Dunkin' Donuts packed up their sprinkles and pulled out of California.
After all these years, the Massachusetts-based company announced Tuesday that they are coming back next summer.
Along with several stores in Southern California, you can expect to see a Dunkin Donuts on Power Inn Road near the Granite Regional Park in Sacramento.
The doughnut shop will be combined with a Togos and Baskin-Robbins -- they're owned by the same parent company and do well in California.
The plan is to ultimately have about 1,000 Dunkin' Donuts in California.
