During July 2012, Sack of Donuts, LLC, led by brothers Mike and Andy Knapick, signed its first multi-unit store development for eight new restaurants between Kalamazoo, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana. The first of these stores opened in Kalamazoo earlier this fall with the first two South Bend stores planned to open in late November and early 2013. 

"We are excited to expand Dunkin' Donuts' presence in Grand Rapids and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here," said Mike Knapick, Dunkin' Donuts Franchisee. "We have a passion and loyalty for the brand and look forward to the opening of our Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in the years to come."

Franchise opportunities are still available in Michigan including in Oceana, Newaygo and Montcalm counties. Additional development areas available in Michigan include Traverse City, Flint and Alpena as well as areas in Lansing and Detroit. Dunkin' Donuts' development throughout these communities and towns is part of the Company's goal to double the number of Dunkin' restaurants in the U.S. over the next 20 years.  In support of this goal, Dunkin' Donuts has tailored development approaches designed to suit the growth opportunities and consumer needs of individual markets. To drive its expansion efforts, Dunkin' Donuts has aligned its strategy to support the growth opportunities and consumer needs of individual markets. As a result, the company continues to expand with single and multi-unit opportunities with no minimum unit requirements.

"Our secret to success is our passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day," said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of Development, Dunkin' Brands, Inc. "We believe these existing franchise partners will cultivate lasting customer relationships and become integral parts of their local communities."

Building a solid network of stores within a market enables Dunkin' Donuts to invest in a distribution model that provides consistent, high-quality products that guests expect. 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.
