DOTHAN, Ala. -- Alabama’s first Dunkin Donuts opened here earlier this month, according to a report in the Birmingham Business Journal.
The Massachusetts-based company is making progress on its plan to open 142 locations in Alabama over the next several years following an announcement it made last year, according to the report.
The franchise signed a multi-unit store development agreement with Gulf coast-based Franchise Group LLC to develop 40 stores in Mobile, Ala., and Pensacola, Fla. Plans call for six restaurants to open in Mobile this year, three in Pensacola and the rest over the next six years.
In a 2007 Birmingham Business Journal article, Dunkin’ Donuts said it planned to open more than 70 locations in the Birmingham area over the next several years.
National doughnut franchise Krispy Kreme also said it plans to have 15,000 locations across the country by 2020.
