Canton / MA. (db) Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, announced the signing of two multi-unit store development agreements to establish five Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the Greensboro, Wilmington and Greenville communities of North Carolina with two franchise groups which include both existing and new franchisees.
Jody Edwards, a former professional tennis player, has been a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee since 2010 and currently owns five Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the coastal Carolina region. Under this new agreement, she will be opening two new locations in the Wilmington and Greenville regions, with the first restaurant planned to open in 2018.
Additionally, existing franchisee Paresh Patel has been franchising with Dunkin’ Donuts since 2006, and currently owns 15 locations throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Raleigh-Durham. Joined by his old friend and new franchisee, Alex McCourt, the two are looking forward to developing three new restaurants in the greater Greensboro area. The first restaurant under this agreement is planned in 2019.
With more than 300 Dunkin’ Donuts locations in North Carolina, the company is continuing to recruit franchisees in the Greensboro, Wilmington, Greenville and Raleigh-Durham areas. To help fuel additional growth in the market, special development incentives are available.
