Many franchisees were pleased to read the announcement out of Canton last week that Dunkin’ Brands Chief Operating Officer Scott Murphy had been promoted to the position of President, Dunkin’ Americas. Murphy, who has been with Dunkin’ Brands for the past 15 years, assumed the position of COO last year and in his new capacity, will be responsible for all operations, development, franchising and other capacities for approximately 10,000 Dunkin’ restaurants throughout North and South America. We want to congratulate Scott on this well-deserved promotion and wish him continued success with Dunkin’ in his new role
