As it expands its development footprint throughout California, Dunkin' Donuts announced today the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with existing franchise group, Sizzling Donuts LLC, for 46 new restaurants throughout the greater Sacramento metro area, as well as the surrounding cities of Stockton, Modesto, Tracy, Manteca, Placerville and Davis, Calif.
According to a news release, Sizzling Donut has signed multi-unit store development agreements to develop more than 60 new Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout Northern Utah, Denver, Colorado and Texas. The group currently operates 17 Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in these markets.
"With our plans to develop more than 100 Dunkin' Donuts restaurants over the next several years, we feel our restaurants will play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit the southwest and western states," said Ted Morton, CEO and president of Sizzling Donuts' parent company, Sizzling Platter LLC. "We are excited to bring Dunkin' Donuts' high-quality coffee, sandwiches and baked goods to California, and look forward to breaking ground on the first of many California locations."
Aside from a nontraditional location on a military base, Dunkin' Donuts is set to debut in California in 2015, in Southern California.
Since opening California for franchise development last year, the company has executed store development agreements for more than 150 new free-standing restaurants. Franchise opportunities still remain available throughout California in Fresno, Bakersfield and Santa Barbara, Northern California, and portions of Southern California. There are plans for as many as 1,000 restaurants throughout the state.
