Dunkin’ Brands has announced plans to open 18 new restaurants throughout Houston, TX.
The new restaurants will be opened in partnership with new franchisee Manchester Enterprises and will include 10 multi-brand locations with Baskin-Robbins.
The first of the planned restaurants are set to open in summer 2020 with future markets including Sugarland, Missouri City and Galveston.
Manchester Enterprises chief operations officer, Kirby Dolliole, said: “We have always admired the Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins business models and have continued to monitor their growth over the years.
“Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure to cross paths with many Dunkin’ franchise owners who have consistently raved about the brand and their support structure. We’re eager to begin development and look forward to keeping Houston running on Dunkin’.”
Manchester Enterprises will join a long list of franchisees that operate the 160 Dunkin’ restaurants in Texas.
Grant Benson, senior vice president of franchising and business development at Dunkin’, said: “Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins’ growth would not be possible without the introduction of new franchisees to the system, which demonstrates their high confidence in our brands and world-class support team.
“Our hard-working and dedicated franchisees bring the Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins brands, products, and promotions to life each and every day and have been essential to our growth over the years, which has solidified our position as a leader in the quick service restaurant industry.”
