"As existing Dunkin' Donuts franchisees,
George Ross and his team possess a wealth of knowledge on the brand, and we are thrilled they are expanding their network in
Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of development, Dunkin' Brands. "The opening of these new locations is a great opportunity to expand the reach of the Dunkin' Donuts brand, while offering
Charleston's on-the-go consumers a convenient place to enjoy high-quality coffee and baked goods."
To celebrate the grand openings, each restaurant will offer guests free product samplings every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the first four weeks of operation. All 10 restaurants will be open seven days a week and offer a limited self-serve menu of Dunkin' Donuts' internationally recognized coffee, donuts and bakery goods.
