Along with Baskin Robbins, Starbucks, McDonald’s and 7Eleven, Dunkin’ Donuts is one of many north American Franchise models which has proven very popular and successful in South Korea. With a happy mix of Coffee and Baked goods, Dunkin’ Donuts or 던킨도너츠 offers a get snack and/or drink option at any time of day, plus it has something for all the family. In South Korea there are over 650 Dunkin’ Donuts outlets spread all over the country, so wherever you are you won’t be far from a Dunkin’ Donuts.

My Experience

Being from the UK Dunkin Donuts is something of an unknown as the UK currently has no Dunkin Donuts Outlets plus in the UK “Donut” is spelt “Doughnut”, however when walking into a store for the first time a few years ago I thought to myself, “this isn’t much different for the bakery at Tesco or Gregg’s.” This morning I woke up to a bit of a gloomy day so thought that sometime sweet would help lift the gloom. I woke up the misses and we strolled down to the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts (a 15min walk). As it is a Sunday morning the store wasn’t very busy so we picked our donuts (6), paid (around W8000) and headed home. I love Dunkin’ Donuts mainly due to the fact it sweet, a lot of Korea snacks can be quiet bland and/or bitter, so something sweet and chocolaty and also not filled with Black Bean paste is a refreshing and enjoyable change of pace.

What They Sale

As you might expect a wide range of different  Donuts, Breads and Baked Goods. Plus a good selection of Coffees, Soft Drinks and the new Dunkaccino. Here is an advert for the Dunkaccino in Korea:
