So When the Hell is Dunkin' Donuts Coming to St. Louis?


It's been nearly a year and a half since Dunkin' Donuts announced it was planning to open franchises in St. Louis. But so far, the doughnut and -- vastly more importantly -- coffee chain has only made it to Bloomington and Peoria, Illinois, each about 165 miles from here.
This is even more distressing since the Time to Make the Donuts dude, or at least a few of his colleagues, have cooked up a new applet called Dunkin' Run, which allows your friends and co-workers to send you their coffee run orders via e-mail. You can either print it out or call the order up on your iPhone. Technology makes everything way cooler.

There are, however, still a few kinks to be worked out in Dunkin' Run, as reported by Chadwick Martin on Slate's business site, The Big Money. Maybe they'll be all worked out in the next 50 years or so, you know by the time Dunkin' finally gets here?
