Dunkin' Donuts isn't just the number one retailer of hot and iced coffee by the cup - we are also one of the largest coffee and baked good chains in the world!* With more than 12,500 locations in over 45 countries, we are looking for exceptional franchise candidates to help keep America runnin' on Dunkin' every day.
With more than 20,000 points of distribution in more than 60 countries, Dunkin’ Brands is one of the world’s leading franchisors of quick service restaurants (QSRs) serving hot and cold coffee and baked goods, as well as hard serve ice cream. Dunkin’ Brands is the parent company of two of the world’s most recognized and beloved brands: Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s favorite all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, and Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops.
Dunkin’ Donuts, founded in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1950, is famous for its combination of high-quality coffees, espresso beverages, baked goods and breakfast sandwiches served all day with fast, friendly service. Baskin-Robbins, founded in Glendale, California in 1945, is iconic for its variety of “31 flavors” of ice cream, along with the brand’s creative ice cream cakes, milkshakes and ice cream sundaes. Dunkin' Brands' 100 percent franchised business model currently includes more than 12,500 Dunkin' Donuts restaurants and nearly 8,000 Baskin-Robbins restaurants.
Franchised restaurants sell Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, donuts, bagels, muffins, compatible bakery products, sandwiches, as well as other food items and beverages compatible with the franchisor’s concept. The restaurant types offered are as follows:· Freestanding: A Restaurant, either newly constructed or an existing structure (to be retrofit), that does not share any common walls with any third party.
· Shopping Center/Storefront: A Restaurant that shares a common wall (or walls) with third parties.
