Dunkin’ Donuts, a USA-based coffee and baked goods chain, has expanded its franchise network in UAE. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Saud Sultan Al Qassimi, proprietor of Continental Foods Est which owns the Dunkin’ Donuts franchise rights for UAE, opened 16 outlets across the country. These new outlets are now operating alongside the 50 Dunkin’ Donuts locations that were already in operation.
David Rodgers, the General Manager of Dunkin’ Donuts, said: “With 16 new outlets we are present in all emirates of the UAE. This is a reflection of our commitment to serving the people of the UAE. We are looking for new opportunities to meet demand.
“The Middle East with 300 million people is an emerging market. This market is driven by the Gulf, which is a region of great success. For Dunkin’ Donuts, the UAE and Saudi Arabia are key markets with a presence of 50 stores in each country. The UAE is a key economy in the region and has a young population clamouring for a familiar brand in keeping with their busy lifestyles.”
