Dunkin' Donuts Fuels Growth In Charleston, South Carolina With The Opening Of New Self-Serves At 10 Hess Locations

CANTON, Mass., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, announced today that existing franchisee George Ross, chief executive of Coastal Franchising LLC, has partnered with Hess Corporation to own and operate Dunkin' Donuts self-serve restaurants in 10 Hess locations in the greater Charleston, S.C., area. In 2007, Coastal Franchising LLC acquired four Dunkin' Donuts franchises in Charleston and has since added five more restaurants to its portfolio. With this announcement, they will own Dunkin' Donuts self-serves at Hess locations and nine standalone Dunkin' Donuts restaurants.
