Canton, Mass. -- Dunkin' Donuts said it will open eight new restaurants in Rochester, N.Y., via a multi-unit store development agreement executed with existing franchisee Luis Ribeiro.
Ribeiro currently owns 25 of the 61 Dunkin' Donuts in the Greater Rochester area.
"We expect 10 to 20 new Dunkin' Donuts restaurants to open in Rochester over the next few years," said Grant Benson, VP franchising and business development, Dunkin' Brands.
In June, the company unveiled a series of four new restaurant design options – labeled Original Blend, Cappuccino Blend, Dark Roast and Jazz Brew – to allow franchisees to select individual elements from any of the four options in order to create a restaurant design that reflects personal tastes and preferences. The four options incorporate variations in layout, color schemes, graphics, textures, furniture and lighting.
