Dunkin' Brands has signed multi-unit store development agreements with two new franchise groups to develop 17 new restaurants in markets in West and Central Texas throughout the next several years.
These agreements push the number of restaurants planned by the company to more than 100 in the Lone Star State.
The two franchise groups include:
- New franchise group Niknud LLC plans to develop eight traditional Dunkin' Donut restaurants and three Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins combination units throughout Western Texas in Abilene, Amarillo, Lubbock and San Angelo. The first restaurant is planned to open in 2014 and the remainder by 2019.
- New franchise group Alamo Donuts LLC plans to develop five traditional Dunkin' Donut restaurants and one Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins combination location in San Antonio. Led by principal Jeff Phillips, the first restaurant is planned to open in 2014 and the remainder by 2019.
Dunkin' Donuts franchise opportunities are still available in Texas in Beaumont, Wichita Falls, Tyler and Midland/Odessa. Additionally, opportunities exist to develop Baskin-Robbins shops across Texas.
"We've experienced incredible growth throughout Texas recently, which wouldn't be possible without our passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day," said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of franchising and business development, Dunkin' Brands. "We have over 100 restaurants planned to open over the next several years with outstanding franchise partners and are thrilled that Niknud LLC and Alamo Donuts LLC have chosen to grow with us in the Lone Star State."
