Dunkin’ Donuts announced today 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 and eight new restaurants in El Paso, Texas. The company also acquired two additional existing restaurants in El Paso.
Sizzling Platter, LLC is a restaurant management company that operates restaurants located in seven states in the Mountain West, Southwest, and Pacific Northwest under the Little Caesars, Sizzler, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Ruby River Steakhouse, and Hoppers Gill & Brew Pub brand names.
“We are excited to expand Dunkin’ Donuts’ presence in Denver and El Paso and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work, and visit here,” says Ted Morton, president and CEO, Sizzling Platter, LLC. “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 Denver and Houston.
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 Ted and his team will cultivate lasting customer relationships and become an integral part of the Denver and El Paso community.”
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, and universities, as well as other retail environments.
