Dunkin' Donuts has announced the signing of a multi-store development agreement with new franchisees Buzz and Brad Calkins for 12 new restaurants in Denver. The first restaurant is planned to open in 2013, and the remainder by 2018.
The father and son duo will direct their management team as they oversee the company's daily operations for each restaurant. For more than 100 years under the Bradley Petroleum banner, four generations of Calkins have owned and operated multi-unit gas and convenience operations in three states.
"We are excited to expand Dunkin' Donuts' presence in Denver and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here," said Buzz Calkins. "We have a passion and loyalty for the brand and look forward to the opening of our Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in the years to come."
Franchise opportunities are still available across Colorado in cities including Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Greeley and South Denver.
