Dunkin' Brands has signed a multiunit store development agreement with existing franchise group, New York Donuts Group Inc., for eight traditional Dunkin' Donut restaurants and one Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins combination location in Houston. The first restaurant is expected to open in 2014 and the remainder by 2020.
In 2006, New York Donuts Group Inc. signed an agreement to develop six Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in New York that are currently open throughout Manhattan and Harlem.
Although the company is no longer recruiting franchisees to develop Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in Houston, opportunities throughout Texas remain available in Beaumont, Rio Grande Valley and Victoria. Additionally, opportunities exist to develop Baskin-Robbins shops in Houston and Austin.
