Baskin-Robbins announces new initiative to reinvigorate and restore growth in the Pacific Northwest

 

LARGEST ICE CREAM SPECIALTY SHOP SEEKS NEW GENERATION OF FRANCHISEES IN OREGON AND WASHINGTON; BRAND HOSTS WEBINARS FEATURING NEW AND EXISTING DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE, SEPT. 20 AND 27

CANTON, MA, 2017-Nov-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, today announced a new initiative to reinvigorate and restore growth in the Pacific Northwest, and attract a new generation of franchisees to join the 71-year-old brand.  As the sole franchisor and exclusive developer in the region, the company is fully committed to supporting the Pacific Northwest’s 150 plus shops by working directly with franchisees to remodel existing locations and elevate the brand’s image via national promotions and the addition of new ice cream flavors.  In an effort to help drive long-term expansion, franchise opportunities to develop new shops or purchase existing shops for sale are also available.

Currently, 30 stores are on track to be remodeled by the end of the year to include the newest store design, which puts the ice cream front and center, combining fun, modern visual elements with the brand’s rich history of product innovation, with more planned for 2017.  Franchisees who remodel their location are awarded a free franchise term as an incentive to bring their store up to the current look.

“Baskin-Robbins has taken the pledge to evolve our existing locations throughout the Pacific Northwest into shops that embody and reflect the brand’s core pillars – heritage, hospitality and happiness.  We launched this initiative to not only ensure every shop reflects our fun personality but also communicate the right message to our consumers, while offering them previously unavailable products and promotions,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “As our brand continues to develop, various franchise opportunities are also available for local entrepreneurs who have a passion for their local communities and are interested in working with us to reinvigorate Baskin-Robbins throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.”

Candidates who may not be interested in starting from the ground up but have a drive for local store marketing and an understanding of brand-building within the community can take advantage of the 30 existing shops for sale in Everett, Portland, Puyallup, Richland and Seattle. Buying an existing shop can offer established sales, staff, systems and community presence offering more of a turnkey solution for first-time business owners.

“When I was in middle school, my mother owned a Baskin-Robbins shop in Great Falls, Montana, and ice cream scooping was my very first job.  More than 18 years later, the opportunity arose to purchase the very same shop my mother previously owned and I couldn’t pass it up”, said Ashley Davidson, Baskin-Robbins franchisee. “I reopened the shop this June and since debuting a fresh, modern new store design have seen an uptick in sales. I am lucky to be able to do the work that I love with guidance and support from the corporate team and highly recommend joining a brand that has a strong reputation and a passionate following from consumers nationwide, such as Baskin-Robbins.”

For interested individuals to learn about buying a store for sale in the Pacific Northwest region, Baskin-Robbins will be hosting free online webinars on Tuesday, Sept. 20 and Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. (EDT). Candidates who have ever thought about owning his or her own business should consider tuning in to the webinars to learn more about the unique opportunity Baskin-Robbins can offer. To register for either event, visit http://franchisingevents.dunkinbrands.com/.   Unprecedented incentives are also still available for new franchisees.*

Ideal franchise candidates should meet our financial qualifications, have a passion for their local communities, a dedication to operational excellence and, of course, a love for ice cream. Baskin-Robbins has created these specific criteria to make certain its franchisee partners and the brand can be successful.  The company shares a common objective with its franchisees, which focuses on maximizing a territory’s sales and building a strong brand identity in this increasingly challenging economy.

Baskin-Robbins combines delicious treats with a simple operating model. Franchisees enjoy convenient hours of operation, minimal equipment and little product waste. They also benefit from award-winning training programs and comprehensive operating systems designed to help build their business.

Baskin-Robbins announces third consecutive year of positive net new unit growth in the U.S.

LARGEST ICE CREAM SPECIALTY SHOP CONTINUES STRATEGIC U.S. MILITARY VETERAN RECRUITMENT IN 2016

CANTON, MA, 2017-Nov-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, announced its third consecutive year of positive net new unit growth in the U.S. In 2015, 19 net new U.S. shops opened across the country, in states including California, Kentucky and Louisiana. This represents nearly double the number of net new restaurant openings the brand had originally projected for 2015.

Baskin-Robbins also signed store development agreements in 2015 with new and existing franchisees to open new future locations in several areas, including Dalton, Ga.; Escondido and Los Angeles, Calif.; Louisville, Ky.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Lima, Ohio; and San Antonio, Texas, among others. In 2016, the company plans to focus on recruiting franchisees in areas with warmer climates and high levels of tourism, such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, Phoenix and San Diego.

Additionally, Baskin-Robbins continues to add more military veterans to its U.S. franchisee base by offering one of the best financial incentives in the industry. The extraordinary incentive program* offers a free initial franchise fee, a $25,000 value, for a veteran’s first shop and heavily discounted royalty rates for the first five years that the store is open. Since 2013 when the program was introduced, the brand has awarded the incentive to five new franchisees across the U.S. The incentive program will continue to be offered in 2016, so qualified veterans are encouraged to apply to be considered.

For interested candidates who are not military veterans, the brand also offers compelling financial incentives* nationwide that includes 50 percent off the initial franchise fee and reduced royalty rates for five years.

“We are very happy with Baskin-Robbins’ positive net new unit growth in the U.S. in 2015, and continue to believe the brand is well-positioned for growth in the coming years. As a brand that has been dedicated to making ‘fun’ the center of our guests’ experience for over 70 years, it’s exciting to know we’re working with like-minded franchisees who are ice cream enthusiasts and align with the overall Baskin-Robbins mission,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “Our growth strategy in 2016 will include targeted outreach to military veterans as Baskin-Robbins continues to develop relationships with those who are committed to the growth and expansion of the brand.”

In 2013, Baskin-Robbins launched a new store design to fuel growth and expansion across the U.S. Since then, nearly 300 new and remodeled franchise locations have debuted throughout the country, and in 2015, 196 shops were remodeled with the new restaurant design that showcases the brand’s heritage and incorporates modern visual elements.

Baskin-Robbins combines delicious treats with a simple operating model. Franchisees enjoy convenient hours of operation, minimal equipment and little product waste. They also benefit from world-class training programs and comprehensive operating systems designed to help build business.

Guzaratti, LLC will develop one Dunkin’ Donuts location in a gas and convenience store.

New franchisees Nishith and Navnit Patel of QSR Group, LLC are both experienced multi-unit operators of quick service restaurants. They also have extensive experience in the Macon, Georgia area. Nishit and Navnit are dedicated to further developing the brand in the region with their first restaurant scheduled to open in 2018.

“We couldn’t be more excited to develop Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, two iconic brands, in Macon. The team we’ve formed has a deep understanding of what it takes to be successful in multi-unit restaurant development and we’re looking forward to our first of many openings next year,” said Navnit, Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins franchisee. “As we expand throughout Macon over the next several years, we hope to attract new customers, as well as longtime fans of the brands, and show them the premium products and quality service we have to offer.”

New franchisee Smita Patel of Guzaratti LLC is an Atlanta-based business owner with experience operating other restaurant concepts. Smitha will include Dunkin’ Donuts in a new “green” gas station and convenience store location in the Buckhead suburb of Atlanta.

With more than 190 Dunkin’ Donuts locations in the Greater Atlanta and Macon areas, the company is continuing to recruit franchisees in the Atlanta and Augusta areas. To help fuel additional growth in the market, 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, and 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 — from early morning breakfast and coffee all the way to after-dinner ice cream treats.

Dunkin’ Donuts menu offerings include high-quality, freshly-brewed Hot and Iced Coffees, Cold Brew and Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Dark Roast, along with a Rainforest Alliance Certified™ espresso lineup that includes Americano, Cappuccino, Espresso, and Hot and Iced Lattes and Macchiato. Dunkin’ Donuts also serves a full menu of Premium Hot Teas, frozen beverages, delicious donuts, bakery goods and sandwiches that pair perfectly with the brand’s beverages.

The first shop under this agreement opened in Santa Monica earlier this year. He plans on opening his second Baskin-Robbins shop in 2017, with the third location following in 2018.

“I’ve always wanted to be in the business of making people happy. I grew up enjoying Baskin-Robbins ice cream and never left without a smile on my face,” said Sharooz Setareh, Baskin-Robbins franchisee. “When I was ready to add another brand to my portfolio, I looked for one that would allow me to bring that same smile to my customers. I learned about Baskin-Robbins’ franchise opportunities from an old friend and multi-unit franchisee with the brand. I immediately signed on to develop three Baskin-Robbins shops and look forward to growing the brand throughout Los Angeles.”

To fuel additional growth, Baskin-Robbins continues to offer simplified, turnkey development opportunities to prospective franchising candidates. The company has sold two of these ready-to-operate shops so far this year in California and has another turnkey opportunity available now in Vista. By purchasing a ready-to-operate shop like these, franchisees avoid the site selection and development phase, which is just one of the many benefits of this development strategy.

The first turnkey shop in Porterville was sold to existing franchisee franchisee Harpreet Gill and opened earlier this summer. The second shop in Imperial Beach was sold to new franchisee Alejandro Kochergan and is planned to open early next year.

“Our secret to continued growth includes passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day, and we are thrilled Sharooz, Harpreet and Alejandro will be expanding our brand in Southern California,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “As we continue to foster and grow our relationship with California ice cream lovers, we’re looking for motivated entrepreneurs who have a passion for their local communities to join our team and take advantage of the brand’s ownership opportunities and financial incentives, which include 50 percent off the initial franchise fee and free royalty for the store’s first year.”

In an effort to recruit motivated entrepreneurs to become franchisees with Baskin-Robbins, the brand will hold two seminars in September for prospective candidates: Firstly, a seminar in Vista to meet the Baskin-Robbins Business Development team and learn more about what it takes to own and operate a turnkey ice cream shop and, secondly, a seminar in Long Beach for candidates to hear more about traditional franchising opportunities.

Baskin-Robbins announces its third consecutive year of positive net new unit growth in the U.S.

LARGEST ICE CREAM SPECIALTY SHOP CONTINUES STRATEGIC U.S. MILITARY VETERAN RECRUITMENT IN 2016

CANTON, MA, 2016-Mar-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, announced its third consecutive year of positive net new unit growth in the U.S. In 2015, 19 net new U.S. shops opened across the country, in states including California, Kentucky and Louisiana. This represents nearly double the number of net new restaurant openings the brand had originally projected for 2015.

Baskin-Robbins also signed store development agreements in 2015 with new and existing franchisees to open new future locations in several areas, including Dalton, Ga.; Escondido and Los Angeles, Calif.; Louisville, Ky.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Lima, Ohio; and San Antonio, Texas, among others. In 2016, the company plans to focus on recruiting franchisees in areas with warmer climates and high levels of tourism, such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, Phoenix and San Diego.

Additionally, Baskin-Robbins continues to add more military veterans to its U.S. franchisee base by offering one of the best financial incentives in the industry. The extraordinary incentive program* offers a free initial franchise fee, a $25,000 value, for a veteran’s first shop and heavily discounted royalty rates for the first five years that the store is open. Since 2013 when the program was introduced, the brand has awarded the incentive to five new franchisees across the U.S. The incentive program will continue to be offered in 2016, so qualified veterans are encouraged to apply to be considered.

For interested candidates who are not military veterans, the brand also offers compelling financial incentives* nationwide that includes 50 percent off the initial franchise fee and reduced royalty rates for five years.

“We are very happy with Baskin-Robbins’ positive net new unit growth in the U.S. in 2015, and continue to believe the brand is well-positioned for growth in the coming years. As a brand that has been dedicated to making ‘fun’ the center of our guests’ experience for over 70 years, it’s exciting to know we’re working with like-minded franchisees who are ice cream enthusiasts and align with the overall Baskin-Robbins mission,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “Our growth strategy in 2016 will include targeted outreach to military veterans as Baskin-Robbins continues to develop relationships with those who are committed to the growth and expansion of the brand.”

In 2013, Baskin-Robbins launched a new store design to fuel growth and expansion across the U.S. Since then, nearly 300 new and remodeled franchise locations have debuted throughout the country, and in 2015, 196 shops were remodeled with the new restaurant design that showcases the brand’s heritage and incorporates modern visual elements.

Patel, a franchisee with Dunkin’ Donuts for ten years, currently operates 31 restaurants in Florida, two in Alabama and three in Louisiana. With this agreement, the group also purchased two existing restaurants in New Orleans.

“We are excited to expand the brand’s presence in New Orleans and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here,” said Vik Patel, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee. “We have a passion and loyalty for the Dunkin’ Donuts brand and look forward to opening our restaurants in the years to come.”

Franchise opportunities remain available in Lafayette, Lake Charles and Monroe, Louisiana, as well as other states across the Southeast including Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. To help fuel additional growth in the market, special development incentives are available which include reduced royalty fees for three years and up to $5,000 in local store marketing support for timely openings.*

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.

“Our enthusiastic and dedicated franchisees contribute to our brand’s growth, which has helped solidify our position as one of the fastest growing brands by unit count in the quick-service restaurant industry,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “We are thrilled that Vik and his team have chosen to expand in the Louisiana market, and know these new restaurants they are developing will satisfy a growing consumer demand in the New Orleans community.”

Dunkin’ Donuts’ new look includes four distinct restaurant design options for franchisees, each featuring variations in layout, color schemes, graphics, textures, furniture and/or lighting. The designs enhance the current restaurant appearance, environment and layout to serve people all day long. Unlike other quick-service restaurants, Dunkin’ Donuts allows franchisees to select individual elements from any of the four options, creating a restaurant design that reflects their personal tastes and preferences, and best serves their specific restaurant size and location.

Since the 1950s, Dunkin’ Donuts has been a daily ritual for millions of people and has offered guests delicious food, beverages and friendly service at a great value. Dunkin’ Donuts offerings include hot coffee, iced coffee, flavored coffees, lattes, macchiato, espresso, cappuccino, Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup® pods, Coolatta® frozen drinks, donuts, muffins, bagels, breakfast and bakery sandwiches, and a DDSMART® menu featuring better-for-you items.

Baskin-Robbins secured space in a high-traffic area in the popular Westfield Mall in Escondido, Calif.

WORLD’S LARGEST CHAIN OF ICE CREAM SPECIALTY SHOPS SEEKS FRANCHISEES FOR PRIME LOCATION IN NORTH COUNTY WESTFIELD MALL AND OTHER SAN DIEGO PRE-SELECTED SITES

CANTON, MA, 2015-6-5 — /EPR Retail News/ — Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, today announced it is coming to the North County Westfield Mall in Escondido, Calif. as part of its latest expansion efforts in the San Diego area. The company has secured space in a high-traffic area in the popular Westfield Mall located at 272 E. Via Rancho Parkway. Baskin-Robbins is seeking franchise candidates who are looking for a sweet opportunity in a prime location and would like to take advantage of the many perks that Baskin-Robbins offers with this turn-key non-traditional development opportunity.

Non-traditional development opportunities, such as kiosks, have a lower development cost, shorter franchise term and less cash requirement than a traditional, standalone ice cream shop. Ideal for San Diego entrepreneurs, the North County Westfield Mall location is currently in the process of being designed and built and will include a 10-year franchise term and discounted royalty rates for the first three years.

CANTON, MA, 2015-4-8 — /EPR Retail News/ — Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, announced today the signing of multi-unit store development agreements with two existing franchise groups to develop seven restaurants in Illinois over the next several years.

The two franchise groups and their development plans include:

  • Existing franchisees Krishna Patel and Rashimi (Sim) Patel plan to develop four Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout Champaign, one of which will be located outside of the major metropolitan area. This duo currently operates six Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Joliet, Romeoville, Plainfield, and Shorewood. Their next restaurant in Decatur is planned to open in Summer 2015, and the remainder by 2019.
  • Existing franchise Asif Rajabali plans to develop three Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants that will be located in smaller towns and communities outside Rockford. Rajabali currently owns and operates two Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Bartlett and Elgin. His next restaurant is planned to open in Winter 2015, and the remainder by 2017.

Currently, there are 591 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants located throughout Illinois. The company is continuing to recruit franchisees in Quincy and throughout cities and towns outside the greater metropolitan areas of Champaign and Peoria. To help fuel growth in Illinois, special development incentives are available which include reduced royalty fees for three years and up to $5,000 in local store marketing support for timely openings.*

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.

“Our enthusiastic and dedicated franchisees contribute to our brands’ growth, which has helped solidify our position as one of the fastest growing companies by unit count in the quick-service restaurant industry,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “We are thrilled these existing franchisees have expanded their portfolios in the Illinois market, and know these new restaurants they are developing will satisfy a growing consumer demand in the Champaign and Rockford communities.”

Dunkin’ Donuts’ new look includes four distinct restaurant design options for franchisees, each featuring variations in layout, color schemes, graphics, textures, furniture and/or lighting. The designs enhance the current restaurant appearance, environment and layout to serve people all day long. Unlike other quick-service restaurants, Dunkin’ Donuts allows franchisees to select individual elements from any of the four options, creating a restaurant design that reflects their personal tastes and preferences, and best serves their specific restaurant size and location.

Since the 1950s, Dunkin’ Donuts has been a daily ritual for millions of people and has offered guests delicious food, beverages and friendly service at a great value. Dunkin’ Donuts offerings include iced coffee, flavored coffees, lattes, Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup® Packs, Coolatta® frozen drinks, donuts, muffins, bagels, breakfast and bakery sandwiches, and a DDSMART® menu featuring better-for-you items.
