Dunkin’ Donuts Signs Seven-Unit Deal in Denver

Dunkin’ Donuts announced today the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with Doug and Katy Redman for seven restaurants in Denver. The first restaurant is planned to open in 2013 and the remainder by 2018. 

Together, this father and daughter team will manage and oversee the company’s daily operations for each restaurant. With more than 23 years of experience in the franchise industry, Doug was formally a development agent and multi-unit owner of over 140 Subway restaurants (in Nebraska and South Dakota), 10 video rental/electronic stores, and two Taco Del Mars.

“We are excited to expand Dunkin’ Donuts’ presence in Denver and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work, and visit here,” says Doug Redman. “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.”

Franchise opportunities are still available in Colorado in Fort Collins and the surrounding areas. To drive its expansion efforts, Dunkin’ Donuts has aligned its strategy to support the growth opportunities and consumer needs of individual markets.  

As a result, the company continues to expand with single and multi-unit opportunities with no minimum unit requirements.

“Our secret to success is our passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day,” says Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of franchising and market planning, Dunkin’ Brands, Inc. “We believe Doug and his team will cultivate lasting customer relationships and become an integral part of the Denver community.”

Earlier this year, the company announced the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with a newly formed subsidiary of Sizzling Platter, LLC (Sizzling Donuts, LLC) for 11 new restaurants in Denver that are planned to open over the next several years.  

Building a solid network of stores within a market enables Dunkin’ Donuts to invest in a distribution model that provides consistent, high-quality products that guests expect. 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, and other retail environments.

Historically a donut and hot coffee chain, Dunkin’ Donuts has expanded its menu to offer guests more high-quality, great-tasting food and beverages that can be enjoyed all day. Guests can enjoy freshly brewed hot and iced coffee, lattes, Coolatta frozen drinks, a full bakery assortment including bagels and muffins, breakfast sandwiches, better-for-you DDSMART items, hash browns, and more.
