Although each of these markets are nearly sold out, opportunities throughout Texas remain available and new markets may be added soon. To drive its expansion efforts, Dunkin' Donuts has aligned its strategy to support the growth opportunities and consumer needs of individual markets. As a result, the company continues to expand with single and multi-unit opportunities with no minimum unit requirements.
"Our secret to success is our passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day," said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of Development, Dunkin' Brands, Inc. "We believe these new franchisees will cultivate lasting customer relationships and become an integral part of the San Antonio and Houston communities."
By joining Dunkin' Donuts, franchisees become part of a nationally established brand with 98 percent brand recognition, benefit from a multi-million dollar advertising fund, in addition to having access to world-class training and ongoing operational support, among many other benefits.
In an effort to keep the brand fresh and competitive, Dunkin' Donuts offers flexible concepts for any real estate format including free-standing restaurants, end caps, in-line sites, gas and convenience, travel plazas, universities, as well as other retail environments.
