Dunkin' Donuts is seeking to expand in communities throughout West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina and Tennessee, and is looking for qualified franchisee candidates to grow the brand in specific counties within these eight states.
"As part of our strategic growth plan, we are excited to offer this opportunity to qualified franchisee candidates who are interested in developing a restaurant outside of larger metropolitan areas in these regions," said John Dawson, chief development officer, Dunkin' Brands Inc. "With more than 60 years in franchising, we've found the development and successful operation of a Dunkin' Donuts can deliver a significant impact to the community it serves and we are actively seeking local entrepreneurs to become the face of the brand in their towns."
Dunkin' Donuts' development throughout these communities is part of the company's goal to double the number of restaurants in the U.S. throughout the next 20 years. Dunkin' Donuts has tailored development approaches to suit the growth opportunities and consumer needs of individual markets.
"We're looking for community leaders who may already operate local businesses, such as other restaurants, retail outlets or even convenience stores and gas stations, who have the passion, financial qualifications and experience to operate a Dunkin' Donuts," Dawson said.
