Dunkin' Donuts is on an expansion tear. The Massachusetts-based coffee and doughnut chain has signed two major international deals that'll bring its pink-and-orange storefronts to both Mexico and China, en masse. Yesterday, the Boston Globe reported Dunkin' signed a deal to open its first locations in Mexico, numbering up to 100 stores total. Meanwhile, the Nikkei Asian Review reports today the chain has teamed with popular Philippine chain Jollibee to open at least 1,459 stores throughout China, Hong Kong, and Macau, with Jollibee and DD committing $300 million to the expansion efforts. (In addition to its namesake chain, Jollibee Foods Corporation also owns international chains like the Chinese fast-food concept Chowking. It also operates all Burger King locations in the Philippines.)

According to press materials, Dunkin' already operates 11,000 locations in 33 countries (7,900 of those locations are in the United States). In a press release, a DD representative said the Mexico menu will feature familiar items like "hot and iced coffees, espresso, cappuccino, lattes, teas, Coolatta frozen drinks, bagels, muffins, croissants, donuts, and sandwiches."
