Dunkin’ Donuts announced plans to open a restaurant in Norris Center on the Northwestern University campus in Evanston, Illinois.

The new restaurant, scheduled to open in the spring of 2014, will be owned and operated by Sodexo, which is a food services and facilities management multinational corporation headquartered in France. Sodexo operates more than a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts locations in the U.S.

"Universities are increasingly looking for more amenities to offer campus residents and visitors, and our brand's flexible design options couple convenience with great-tasting food and America's favorite coffee," says Grant Benson, CFE and vice president of global franchising and business development for Dunkin' Brands.  “College students, faculty, and staff can refuel on a delicious line-up of beverages and food between classes, tests, and studying.”

Northwestern University joins other colleges and universities that have brought Dunkin' Donuts to campus in the last two years, including Emory University, Providence College, University of Baltimore, and Virginia Tech. Each serves Dunkin' Donuts' menu of foods and beverages that can be enjoyed throughout the day. These items include a range of hot and iced coffee beverages; a variety of donuts, muffins, bagels; and breakfast and bakery sandwiches.
