Dunkin' Donuts has signed a multi-unit store development agreement with existing franchisees, Savoureux Corp., for 12 new restaurants in North Omaha, Neb. and Sioux City, Iowa. The first restaurant is set to open in 2013.
For the expansion Savoureux Corp., led by Kris Brown and Zach Wiegert, has teamed with Jeff Woodbury of Woodbury Corp., and David Scott, CEO of Tetrad Corps., an Omaha-based real estate and investment firm.
"We are excited to expand Dunkin' Donuts presence in Omaha and Sioux City and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here," Brown said in a press release. "We have a passion and loyalty for the brand and look forward to the opening of our restaurants in the years to come."
This is the latest of several expansion announcements the restaurant chain has made in recent months, as it continues to increase its presence across the United States. In January Dunkin’ inked a deal for eight new restaurants in Des Moines, Iowa, and in October 2011, the chain announced that it would add 86 restaurants in Washington, D.C.
