On behalf of the City of Atlantic City, it is indeed a pleasure to welcome the Dunkin’ Donuts Independent Franchise Owners (DDIFO) to Atlantic City on the special occasion of their National Conference, to be held September 16-18, 2013 at Caesars Atlantic City.

At this time, I wish to take the opportunity to personally thank DDIFO for selecting Atlantic City as the destination for their National Conference.  It is significant and important to note that this will be the first time the National Conference will be held outside of New England.

As you know, one of the reasons DDIFO chose Atlantic City as the site for this year’s National Conference is to show support for our region, particularly after Hurricane Sandy. Please know that DDIFO’s commitment and willingness to hold their National Conference in our great city is appreciated more than words can express.

Hurricane Sandy caused significant damage throughout our community, wreaking havoc in our neighborhoods, and costing our local economy over $200 million. However, when you visit us you will see firsthand just how well we have recovered from Hurricane Sandy.  Indeed, Atlantic City is truly resilient. “We’re stronger than the storm” and open for business: ready, willing and able to host Dunkin’ Donuts Independent Franchise Owners and provide the kind of first-class accommodations that has earned Atlantic City its reputation as the place to be!

Additionally, I want to recognize and commend DDIFO for their outstanding efforts to represent franchises and their more than 2,500 locations from across the United States.  Over the years, Dunkin’ Donuts has become a personal favorite of many Atlantic City residents – myself included – as I am a satisfied patron of our local Dunkin’ Donuts and franchisee Arun Mandi.

While you’re here for the DDIFO National Conference, be sure to “Do AC” and take advantage of all that Atlantic City has to offer.  From our world-famous Boardwalk and beach, to delectable dining, star-studded entertainment, superb shopping, and non-stop casino excitement, Atlantic City has something special for everyone!

Again, thank you for holding your National Conference in Atlantic City.  We appreciate your patronage and look forward to making your stay most memorable and enjoyable.

In closing, please come back soon to visit us again…and remember, you’re always welcome in Atlantic City
