Dunkin’ Donuts is continuing to push westward.
The company said on Tuesday today that it is recruiting franchisees for the markets of Reno, Nevada; Wichita and Topeka, Kansas; as well as portions of Texas, including territories in the western, southern and eastern portions of the state that include cities such as Amarillo and Corpus Christi.
Dunkin’s push is part of the company’s goal to more than double its current footprint of more than 7,000 restaurants in the United States over the next 20 years.
To attract the widest range of franchisees, the company is offering a variety of options, including free-standing stores, end caps, kiosks and gas stations, as well as other retail environments.
Based in Canton, Mass., Dunkin’ Donuts is part of the Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. family of companies. Dunkin’ Donuts has more than 10,000 restaurants in 32 countries worldwide.
Prospective franchisees should note that the company expects candidates to have more than a love of coffee and baked goods. One of the requirements is “adequate resources and capitaization,’’ according to the company’s website. The minimum resource requirements for a single unit development commitment, the company says, include liquid assets of $250,000 and a net worth of $500,000.
