2 more Dunkin’ Donuts coming to Peachtree City


Dunkin’ Donuts announced June 28 the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with Peter and Arjun Patel for two restaurants in Peachtree City, Ga.

The first restaurant is slated to open this year and the second in 2013. Locations were not announced. Currently there are two DD franchises in Fayette, one just east of Peachtree City and the other in Fayetteville.

The Patels have been Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees for over five years and currently own and operate two restaurants in Augusta.

“We are excited to expand Dunkin’ Donuts’ presence in the Peachtree City market and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here,” said Peter Patel. “We have a strong passion and loyalty for the brand and look forward to the opening of our additional restaurants in the years to come.”

“Dunkin’ Donuts is excited to expand its footprint in Peachtree City,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of franchising and market planning, Dunkin’ Brands, Inc. “Our secret to success is our passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day. We’re confident The Patels will cultivate lasting customer relationships in the Atlanta area and become an integral part of their respective communities.”

Historically a doughnut and hot coffee chain, Dunkin’ Donuts has expanded its offering to include frozen and iced beverages, a full bakery assortment including bagels and muffins, breakfast sandwiches, and an all-day Oven-Toasted menu which includes flatbread sandwiches, hash browns and buttermilk biscuits. The platform marks the most significant change to Dunkin’ Donuts’ product lineup since the company launched espresso-based beverages in 2003.

Founded in 1950, Dunkin’ Donuts is the largest coffee and baked goods chain in the world. The company has more than 9,700 restaurants in 31 countries worldwide. In 2010, Dunkin’ Donuts’ global system-wide sales were $6.0 billion. Based in Canton, Massachusetts, Dunkin’ Donuts is a subsidiary of Dunkin’ Brands, Inc.
