Dunkin’ Donuts signed a multi-unit store development agreement to establish seven restaurants in Raleigh-Durham, N.C., with existing franchisee Coastal Franchising Inc. The group’s first restaurant under this agreement is planned to open next year. Coastal Franchising Inc. currently owns 39 locations throughout the Carolinas, including four Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants and one Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin Robbins multi-brand restaurant within Raleigh-Durham. 

Expanding NC footprint

There are currently more than 90 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the Greater Raleigh-Durham area and more than 200 in North Carolina. 

We are excited to continue developing the Dunkin’ Donuts brand in the Raleigh-Durham area. The team we’ve formed has a proven track record in multi-unit restaurant development and we’re looking forward to our next phase of openings beginning next year,” said Coastal Franchising CEO George Ross in a prepared statement.  

Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 12,300 restaurants in 46 countries worldwide. The restaurant chain also recently signed a development agreement for five new locations in New Orleans.
