CANTON, MASS. — The opening of 55 restaurants during 2015 has pushed Dunkin’ Donuts’ presence across Europe to more than 220 locations, the Canton-based company said. Over the past year, the company celebrated first restaurant openings in Denmark, Georgia, Iceland and Poland, while also opening additional locations in Austria, Germany, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
