Our Denver-based writer wasn't surprised to see Dunkin' win his state with a 127% increase from 11 to 25 locations, as outposts popped up almost simultaneously in Boulder, Denver, and the airport last year.
Although Dunkin' did add 13 locations to its fleet of 520 sprinkle-slingers, percentage growth was low across the board for the Connecticut fast-food market. Challenging Dunkin', Starbucks saw the biggest gains with an 8% increase from 100 to 108 stores.
Starbucks barely edged out Domino's by one store, adding five more shops (18 to 23) for a 28% growth, and giving idiots a much wider range of location options if they want to camp out for 18 hours.
Jersey Mike snuck his way down the coast to add an impressive 26 stores, but the beloved Midwestern purveyor of custard and butter burgers, Culver's, had them beat with a 118% growth, expanding from 11 to 24 custard shops.
