Dunkin’ Donuts is growing its footprint in Alabama and Mississippi.
The chain signed development agreements with two franchise groups to develop 17 locations throughout the two states during the next several years.
Existing franchisee Birmingham Donut Holdings plans to develop nine new Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in Birmingham, Alabama. The group currently operates 34 restaurants throughout Alabama and Florida.
New franchise group Lagunita Franchise Operations, LLC, plans to develop five new restaurants in Mobile, Alabama and three restaurants in Biloxi, Mississippi. The team's first new Dunkin' Donuts restaurants under the agreement in both Alabama and Mississippi are planned to open in 2018.
"Dunkin' Donuts' growth would not be possible without our existing and new franchisees like Birmingham Donut Holdings, LLC and Lagunita Franchise Operations, LLC, who continue to demonstrate their high confidence in our business model, our word-class support team, and the unit economics of the business," said Grant Benson, CFE, senior VP of franchising and development, Dunkin' Brands. "As we continue to work towards our long-term goal of developing 17,000 Dunkin' Donuts in the U.S., we also remain committed to providing great products, exceptional guest service and innovative marketing to our loyal guests around the country."
There are currently 29 Dunkin' Donuts restaurants located throughout Alabama and Mississippi.
