Taipei, Feb. 20 (CNA) All 19 Taiwan outlets of the American donut and coffeehouse chain Dunkin' Donuts will be closed in the first quarter of this year, its parent company announced Wednesday. Dunkin' Brands said in a statement that a mutual decision was made to terminate the franchise relationship with Mercuries and Associates Ltd, which operates Dunkin' Donuts shops in Taiwan. All 19 Dunkin' Donuts outlets will be gradually closed in the first quarter, Dunkin' Brands said, but added that it continue to look for another local franchisee to keep Dunkin' Donuts available in Taiwan. The closure of Dunkin' Donuts stores leaves the donut market in Taiwan open to dominance by Japan's Mister Donut. Dunkin' Donuts opened its first store in Taiwan in 2007 and once had 30 shops at its peak, but by last year the number had shrunk to 19. (By Lin Shen-hsu and Jamie Wang)
