Dunkin’ Donuts has opened two locations on the Kansas Turnpike with franchisee Rosenfield Restaurants, and a third is scheduled to debut in October. These latest locations are part of the company’s continued growth in nontraditional outlets.
“Bringing Dunkin’ Donuts to service plazas around the country is just one great example of how our brand is taking successful elements of our traditional locations and translating them into alternative points of distribution,” said Grant Benson, CFE, VP of franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands. “Travelers can enjoy their favorite coffee and snacks on the road, and our franchise partners can reap the benefits of Dunkin’ Donuts’ flexible design options and state-of-the-art operating systems.”
Dunkin’ Donuts locations along the Kansas Turnpike can be found at the Topeka Service Plaza, Interstate 70 at Mile Marker No. 188, and the Matfield Green Service Plaza, Interstate 35 at Mile Marker No. 97. A third location will open in October at the Towanda Service Plaza on Interstate 35 at Mile Marker No. 65.
“As a multi-concept operator, I know what I’m looking for in a franchise brand,” said Steve Rosenfield, president of Rosenfield Restaurants. “Dunkin’ Donuts has designed its product mix and serving systems for convenience and maximum speed of service. It was the ideal choice when looking for a restaurant brand that could best serve our customers on the go.”
Dunkin’ Donuts currently has more than 500 non-traditional locations, including mass transit stations, travel centers, supermarkets, college campuses and military bases.
