One Of The Largest Focus Brands Franchisees Expands To 146 Locations

One Of The Largest Focus Brands Franchisees Expands To 146 Locations

Focus Brands mega franchisee Fresh Dining Concepts has acquired 73 Auntie Anne’s locations from Double P Corporation. It’s the sixth acquisition in the last 10 months and doubles Fresh Dining Concept’s holdings from 73 to 146 stores.

“Hats off to the Double P team for building a wonderful collection of Auntie Anne’s locations. We were beyond impressed with the portfolio and see this as a clear expression of our strategic expansion plans,” said Kevin Bush, chief strategy officer for Fresh Dining Concepts.

The Miami-based Fresh Dining Concepts also operates Cinnabon and Carvel locations and is set to develop its first Jamba Juice location soon. The franchisee now operates in 12 DMAs across 17 total states, with more than 1,100 employees and locations from coast to coast.

“This is a major achievement for us. Completing the deal with Double P reinforces our aggressive growth strategy and confirms our ascension as one of the largest franchise operators,” said Fresh Dining Concepts’ CEO Luis San Miguel. “We are maintaining a growth-focused mindset and that includes 2022 and the immediate years that follow.”

Fresh Dining Concepts plans to continue its pattern of acquiring and developing new stores. Late last year, the franchisee signed a deal to develop 10 co-branded Auntie Anne’s and Cinnabon locations in the five New York City boroughs over the next four years.
