Dunkin’ Donuts franchise opens 3,000th international restaurant

Dunkin’ Donuts, one of the world’s leading baked goods and coffee chain franchises, has announced the opening of its 3,000th restaurant outside the United States thus continuing its steady expansion around the world. The 3,000th location, a new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant located in Shanghai, China, is the company’s 71st restaurant in Greater China.

Dunkin’ Donuts, which was, it says, one of the fastest growing quick service restaurant chains in the world in 2010, recently announced an agreement with Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd. to develop, sub-franchise and operate more than 500 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants throughout India over the next 15 years.

Furthermore, in 2010, the company announced a development agreement to expand throughout Russia and Ukraine over the next several years. The company’s entry into India and Russia follows its expansion over the past several years throughout Europe, the Middle East, Latin and South America, as well as the Asia-Pacific market.

According to the information provided, the company has grown across four continents over the past five decades since the first Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant outside the United States opened in Canada in 1961. Moreover, Dunkin’ Donuts is also celebrating its 30th anniversary operating in Thailand and the Philippines this year. At the end of fiscal 2010, Dunkin’ Donuts had more than 9,700 restaurants in 31 countries.

According to Dunkin’ Brands CEO and Dunkin’ Donuts President Nigel Travis, Dunkin’ Donuts is one of the world’s most recognized and beloved companies, and the opening of the 3,000th international location underscores the deep emotional connection people around the world have to the brand. “We are thrilled to have reached this important milestone and very pleased with Dunkin’ Donuts’ steady international growth over the last several years,” said Mr. Travis. “The opening of our 3,000th international location reinforces our commitment to global growth and our commitment to offer guests around the world high-quality food and beverages served in a friendly, fast environment at a good value.” (kbp)
