Dunkin' Donuts announced the signing of store development agreement with Kenny Koza for one new restaurant in Detroit, which will open in 2011. Koza will be developing and managing the restaurant with his brothers Carlo and Derek Koza. Dunkin' Donuts' development throughout Detroit is part of a steady and strategic growth strategy, which includes expanding in existing markets while entering new cities across the country to help drive the leading coffee and bakery chain's growth.

The market is home to 55 restaurants and Dunkin' Donuts is pursuing opportunities to develop Detroit with both existing and new franchisees. Special development incentives are available, which include reduced royalty fees for three years and an extra $10,000 in local store marketing for stores that open on time. Most recently the Clinton Township and Orchard Lake Road restaurants have been remodeled in the company's 2015 design, which includes a new décor package that reflects the trends of today.

"I am excited to expand Dunkin' Donuts' presence in Detroit and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here," Koza says. "I have a strong passion and loyalty for the brand and look forward to the opening of my restaurant next year."

"Dunkin' Donuts is excited to welcome Kenny, Carlo, and Derek Koza to the Detroit market," says Grant Benson, vice president of franchising and market planning for Dunkin' Brands Inc. "We are still looking to expand our presence here and are looking for qualified franchisees with foodservice, operations, and real estate experience to join our team in Detroit and encourage prospects to take advantage of our special incentives."
