A new Dunkin’ Donuts location has opened in Jackson Heights.

The popular chain opened at 87-10 Northern Blvd. on March 24, according to a company spokesperson.

The expansion is nothing new for Dunkin’ Donuts. The company is the largest national retailer in New York City, with 568 stores, according to the 2015 State of the Chains study by the Center for an Urban Future.

Dunkin’ Donuts is the dominant chain in every borough except Manhattan, where it ranks fourth in number of locations. Queens has the most Dunkin’ Donuts locations of all the boroughs, with 171.

Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts opened 10 new shops in Queens according to the CUF study.

“We’re excited about our restaurant growth in Queens and hope to continue to expand our presence in the borough,” the Dunkin’ Donuts spokesperson said.

This will be the fifth Dunkin’ Donuts location in Jackson Heights, and is a franchise, according to the company.

The Northern Boulevard location will be open 24 hours, seven days a week.

The spokesperson said that Dunkin’ Donuts’ “strong demand” in the neighborhood factored in to the decision to open the Northern Boulevard location.

This Dunkin’ Donuts location shares a building with Chipotle, which opened last December.
