Dunkin' Donuts today announced plans to develop restaurants in major metropolitan areas across Turkey.
The company is seeking to recruit large, well-capitalized groups with operating experience capable of building out a region with a minimum of 20 to 25 restaurants or the entire country. The brand's initial focus in Turkey will be Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Bursa and Adana.
Dunkin' Donuts is targeting an early 2015 entry with the goal of developing more than 100 restaurants throughout the next 10 years.
"We recognize the restaurant industry in Turkey continues to diversify, which presents a strong growth opportunity for Dunkin' Donuts," Jeremy Vitaro, VP of International Development for Dunkin' Brands, said in a news release. "We feel our value proposition of serving high-quality food and beverages in a fast, friendly environment at a great value will resonate with Turkish consumers."
In addition to Turkey, Dunkin' Donuts has recently expanded into other countries including India, Guatemala and Vietnam. Currently, the brand has 3,200 franchised restaurants internationally.
