Dunkin’ Donuts said it is recruiting franchisees in multiple North Carolina markets, including Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh-Durham, Wilmington and Winston-Salem, to grow its chain of coffee shops. Currently, there are 44 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants located throughout the state.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ development in North Carolina is part of the company’s long-term goal to more than double its current footprint of more than 7,000 restaurants in the U.S. To help fuel growth in North Carolina markets, special development incentives are available, which include reduced royalty fees for three years and up to an extra $10,000 in local store marketing for stores that open on time.*
“Dunkin’ Donuts is looking for qualified candidates with foodservice, operations and real estate experience to join our team to help expand the brand’s footprint in Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh-Durham, Wilmington and Winston-Salem,” said Grant Benson, vice president of franchising and business development for Dunkin’ Brands Inc. “Our secret to success is our passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests everyday.”
In an effort to keep the brand fresh and competitive, Dunkin’ Donuts offers flexible concepts for any real estate format including gas stations, convenience stores, and travel plazas, as well as other retail environments.
“By joining our team, franchisees become part of a nationally established brand with over 60 years of experience and 95 percent brand recognition,” Benson said. “They also receive the benefits of a multi-million dollar advertising fund in addition to world-class training and ongoing support, among many other benefits.”
