Dunkin’ Donuts is heading to India
Dunkin' Donuts, the Canton-based coffee-and-baked-goods chain, said it has signed a franchise agreement that will enable it to enter the Indian market.
The franchise agreement is with Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd., and plans call for Jubilant to open more than 500 Dunkin' Donuts throughout India over the next 15 years.
Dunkin' was bought by new owners about five years ago, and since that time, has been embarked on aggressive expansion, both in the United States and abroad.
According to today's press release, Dunkin' Donuts now has about 9,700 restaurants on four continents, and the chain is set to open its 3,000th international location this month.
