CANTON, Mass., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, announced today that the company is recruiting franchisees in Dothan, AL. Currently, there are 18 restaurants located throughout the state.
As one of the fastest growing quick service (QSR) brands based on unit growth, the company continues to strategically expand in contiguous markets around the country with a long-term goal of having more than 15,000 Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in the United States alone. To help fuel growth in Dothan, special development incentives are available, which include reduced royalty fees for three years and up to $10,000 in local store marketing*. "Dunkin' Donuts is looking for qualified candidates with foodservice, operations and real estate experience to join our team and grow the brand in Dothan," said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin' Brands. "By joining our team, franchisees become part of a nationally established brand that has more than 60 years of heritage, has 95 percent brand recognition in the U.S., a multi-million dollar advertising fund, world-class training and ongoing support, among many other benefits." 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. Dunkin' Donuts' new look includes four distinct restaurant design options for franchisees, each featuring variations in layout, color schemes, graphics, textures, furniture and/or lighting. The designs enhance the current restaurant appearance, environment and layout to serve people all day long. Unlike other quick-service restaurants, Dunkin' Donuts allows franchisees to select individual elements from any of the four options, creating a restaurant design that reflects their personal tastes and preferences, and best serves their specific restaurant size and location.
