QSR Veterans Expand Dunkin' Donuts into Lake Charles, LA
Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, announced the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with new franchise group SWLA Delights, LLC, to develop four Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Lake Charles, Louisiana, including one multi-brand location with Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops. The group’s first restaurant is planned to open in 2018.
SWLA Delights, LLC is led by brothers Gul and Vick Awan who have more than 20 years of combined experience operating QSR (quick service restaurant) concepts and gas and convenience locations throughout Lake Charles and Lafayette. Franchise opportunities remain available across the Southeast in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee. To help fuel additional growth in the Southeast, special development incentives are available.
In an effort to keep the brand fresh and competitive, Dunkin' Donuts offers flexible concepts for any real estate format including free-standing restaurants, end caps, in-line sites, gas and convenience, travel plazas, universities, as well as other retail environments. Additionally, multi-brand restaurants that combine Dunkin’ Donuts with Baskin-Robbins under one roof offer even more opportunity to drive traffic during various day parts.
