Dunkin' Donuts Hope to Jumpstart Opportunities in Ohio
CANTON, Mass. -- Dunkin' Donuts is looking for new franchise opportunities in Ohio and is holding seminars on March 22 in Dayton and March 23 in Toledo in a bid to expand its presence in the state.
"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 Dayton and Toledo," said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of franchising and market planning, Dunkin' Brands Inc. "Our secret to success is our passionate franchisees who provide a high level of customer service to our guests every day, and we encourage interested parties to attend our franchising seminar to learn how they can open a Dunkin' Donuts restaurant in their community."
The company's hope to jumpstart new development in Ohio is part of its growth strategy, which includes growing in existing markets and entering new ones. Special development incentives are available to help reduce loyalty fees for three years and an extra $10,000 in local store marketing for locations that open on time.
Dunkin' Donuts executives will be on hand in Dayton from noon to 2 p.m. at the Dayton Doubletree Downtown. The following day, executives will be at the Toledo Hilton from noon to 2 p.m.
The company paved a strong expansion path in 2010, with 574 net new locations worldwide and 226 new signed franchise commitments in the United States. For the year, Dunkin' Donuts opened 206 net new restaurants in the United States and signed multi-unit development agreements in 29 markets. Included among these new and planned outlets are non-traditional locations such as airports, arenas, travel plazas and universities.
