Dunkin’ Donuts has signed a multi-unit deal that will bring three new stores to an area southeast of greater Kansas City, Missouri. Development plans are currently underway for the restaurants, which are slated to open over the next several years in the Warrensburg and Sedalia markets, a news release said.
The first of the three restaurants is scheduled to open in 2019, with future development plans in the state thereafter. Franchisee Hope and Destiny Inc. is led by Villette Musalia, a native of Kenya with 16 years in the financial, title insurance and foodservice industries.
Under the store development agreement, fellow franchisees Habiba Benatti and Osama Alnagar, each with 15 years of experience in the Dunkin’ Donuts system, will be relocating to the Kansas City area to launch and lead restaurant operations alongside Musalia.
“My partners and I are thrilled about the opportunity to move to Missouri to further develop this emerging Dunkin’ Donuts market by providing the residents of Kansas City with the brand’s signature selection of coffee, breakfast sandwiches and baked goods,” Musalia said in the release. “We look forward to immersing ourselves in the community and making an impact in both our guests’ lives and their palates.”
There are currently 36 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants across Missouri, and the brand is continuing to recruit franchisees in cities including Joplin, Missouri, and Ottumwa, Iowa. To help fuel additional growth in the market, special development incentives are available.
Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 12,500 restaurants in 46 countries worldwide, with plans to grow to 18,000 in the near future.
