August 04, 2016 // Franchising.com // CANTON, MA – Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, announced today the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with three franchise groups to develop 13 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants and four multi-brand units with Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops throughout Atlanta, Georgia over the next several years.
The three franchise groups and their development plans include:
“Our enthusiastic and dedicated franchisees contribute to both of our brands’ growth, which has helped solidify our position as one of the fastest growing companies by unit count in the quick service restaurant industry,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “We are thrilled that these existing franchisees have chosen to expand Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins’ presence in Georgia. We know these new restaurants will satisfy a growing consumer demand in the local communities they serve."
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. Additionally, multi-brand restaurants that combine Dunkin’ Donuts with Baskin-Robbins under one roof offer even more opportunity to drive traffic during various day parts – from early morning breakfast and coffee all the way to after-dinner ice cream treats.
Franchise opportunities are still available to develop Baskin-Robbins standalone shops throughout Atlanta, and to fuel development, the brand is offering compelling financial incentives* that include 50 percent off the initial franchise fee and reduced royalty rates for five years.
