DUNKIN’ DONUTS ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR THREE NEW RESTAURANTS IN SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI WITH NEW FRANCHISE GROUP, OZARK DONUTS, LLC
CANTON, MA (September 1, 2015) – Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, announced today the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with new franchise group, Ozark Donuts, LLC, to develop three new restaurants in Springfield, Missouri. The first restaurant is planned to open at 4020 S. Campbell Avenue in December 2015, with the remainder opening by 2019.
Led by Thomas and Cory Roebuck, these new franchises possess over 30 years of experience in the restaurant and retail industries. Together, this father and son team will manage and oversee the construction and operations for each Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant.
“We are excited to expand the brand’s presence in Missouri and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here,” said Cory Roebuck, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee. “We have a passion and loyalty for the Dunkin’ Donuts brand and look forward to opening our restaurants in the years to come.”
Franchise opportunities still remain available in Joplin, Missouri and Tulsa, Oklahoma. To help fuel growth in Missouri and Oklahoma, special development incentives are available which include reduced royalty fees for three years and up to $5,000 in local store marketing support for timely openings.*
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, as well as other retail environments.
“Our enthusiastic and dedicated franchisees contribute to our brand’s growth, which has helped solidify our position as one of the fastest growing brand’s by unit count in the quick-service restaurant industry,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “We are thrilled these new franchisees have joined the Missouri market, and know these new restaurants they are developing will satisfy a growing consumer demand in the Springfield community."
Dunkin’ Donuts’ new look includes four distinct restaurant design options for franchisees, each featuring variations in layout, color schemes, graphics, textures, furniture and/or lighting. The designs enhance the current restaurant appearance, environment and layout to serve people all day long. Unlike other quick-service restaurants, Dunkin’ Donuts allows franchisees to select individual elements from any of the four options, creating a restaurant design that reflects their personal tastes and preferences, and best serves their specific restaurant size and location.
Since the 1950s, Dunkin' Donuts has been a daily ritual for millions of people and has offered guests delicious food, beverages and friendly service at a great value. Dunkin' Donuts offerings include iced coffee, flavored coffees, lattes, Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup® pods, Coolatta® frozen drinks, donuts, muffins, bagels, breakfast and bakery sandwiches, and a DDSMART® menu featuring better-for-you items.
