New Franchise Agreement with Grupo CF Del Noroeste, calls for the development of 25 Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Mexico over the coming years
CANTON, Mass. (November 9, 2015) – Dunkin’ Donuts, one of the world’s leading coffee and baked goods chains, today announced that it has signed a franchise agreement with Grupo CF Del Noroeste to develop 25 additional Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Mexico. The franchise agreement covers areas including Sonora, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Durango and Zacatecas. With the signing of this agreement, Dunkin’ Donuts has plans to develop more than 125 restaurants in Mexico over the coming years.
“We’re excited to expand our development plans in Mexico with the signing of our franchise agreement with Grupo CF del Noroeste,” said Bill Mitchell, President, Dunkin’ Brands International. “The leaders of the new franchise group have extensive restaurant development and operations experience in Mexico. We look forward to working with their team as we develop the Dunkin’ Donuts brand across Mexico in the years ahead.”
Dunkin’ Donuts currently has more than 11,500 locations in 40 countries around the world. Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Mexico will feature the brand’s wide range of hot and iced coffees, lattes, espressos, cappuccinos, teas, Coolatta® frozen drinks, croissants, donuts and sandwiches, all served fast in friendly, convenient locations and at a great value. The brand will also offer regional menu items to cater to local tastes.
“Dunkin’ Donuts is a world class brand, offering a range of high-quality coffees, sandwiches and baked goods to its guests, so we’re proud to help bring it to Mexico,” said Rogelio Calderon, President and CEO of Grupo CF del Noroeste. “We’re looking forward to developing Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in our regions in the years ahead, and to becoming an integral part of the communities we serve.”
In addition to this franchise agreement with Grupo CF Del Noroeste, Dunkin’ Donuts earlier this year signed a franchise agreement with the Mexican subsidiary of Sizzling Platter, LLC to develop more than 100 locations in Mexico in the coming years in the Distrito Federal, as well as the states of Hidalgo, México, Morelos, Jalisco, and Querétaro. The first restaurant under this earlier agreement opened in Mexico City in October.
Dunkin’ Donuts continues to recruit franchisees in other parts of Mexico, including in Monterey, Veracruz and Yucatán. The brand is looking for franchisees with a proven track record of success in the restaurant industry, strong financial backgrounds, a deep knowledge of their local communities and a passion for Dunkin’ Donuts.
