Seems like everyone wants a piece of the donut market in South Africa and this year will see the launch of popular franchise Dunkin’ Donuts who have plans to open 250 restaurants in the country over the next few years. Last year we had Krispy Kreme launch in SA HERE as well as news that Starbucks would be launching in SA in early 2016 HERE.
Grand Parade Investments, the company that brought Burger King to SA, has signed an agreement with Dunkin Brands which is the company that owns Dunkin’ Donuts as well as the Baskin-Robbins icecream stores.
“At GPI, we work with world-class partners to develop brands that will resonate with South African consumers, which is why we’re thrilled to bring Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin Robbins to the market,” Hassen Adams, executive chairman at GPI, said on Thursday.” [BD Live]
No word yet when exactly or where the first Dunkin’ Donuts stores will open, but i’ll update when they announce it.
Now you know.
