Dunkin' Donuts Plans Nine New Restaurants in Reno
CANTON, Mass. – Dunkin' Donuts is expanding its Nevada territory via the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with new franchise group HT2 Franchising LLC to develop nine new restaurants in Reno. The first location is expected to open in 2015 and the remainder by 2020.
HT2 is led by entrepreneur and Reno native Nicole Hansen, who previously owned six privately branded coffee shops in Washington state and has strong ties to several businesses in the Reno community.
"We are very excited to bring Dunkin' Donuts to Reno, and make the company's famous beverages, baked goods and sandwiches available to an ever-growing base of customers," Hansen said. "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."
With this new agreement, Dunkin' Donuts franchise opportunities are sold out in Reno, but opportunities exist to grow the brand in Colorado and California, the company said. Dunkin' Donuts' new look includes four distinct restaurant design options for franchisees -- Original Blend, Cappuccino Blend, Dark Roast and Jazz Brew -- that feature variations in layout, color schemes, graphics, textures, furniture and/or lighting, as CSNews Online previously reported.
"Our secret to success is our passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day," said Grant Benson, vice president of franchising and business development, Dunkin' Brands. "We believe that Nicole will become an important part of the local community she serves, and we welcome her to the Reno market."
Canton, Mass.-based Dunkin’ Donuts is a division of Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc.
