Canton, Mass. - Dunkin' Donuts has signed a multi-unit store development agreement with new franchisees, Brian and Sharon Weidendorf, to develop seven restaurants in Duluth, Minnesota, and the surrounding areas. The first restaurant is planned to open in spring 2015.
Joining this team is Pat Messina, a restaurant industry veteran, who will manage and oversee the daily operations for each restaurant. In June 2014, Dunkin' Donuts announced the grand opening of a new restaurant in Rochester, Minnesota at the Kahler Grand Hotel. In addition to this location, existing franchise group Rochester Retail Services plans to develop five freestanding Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout the Rochester market in the next several years.
Franchise opportunities still remain available throughout Minnesota in Minneapolis and Mankato.
