How to Franchise Dunkin Donuts in the Philippines

How to franchise Dunkin Donuts in the Philippines? If you want a wise investment with your money, franchising an already successful brand can be a good decision. If you love donuts, you may want to consider franchising the world’s largest donut, coffee and baked goods chain – Dunkin’ Donuts. Dunkin Donuts, popularly known as the “Pasalubong ng Bayan”, serves more than 3 million customers per day, with over 50 varieties of donuts, more than a dozen of coffee beverages, and an array of bagels, breakfast sandwiches and other baked products to choose from.

The first Dunkin’ Donut shop was opened by Bill Rosenberg on 1950 in Quincy, Massachusetts. It licensed its first franchise in 1955. Since then, Dunkin’ Donuts has been America’s favorite everyday, all-day stop for donut, coffee and baked goods. In the Philippines, I personally like the Dunkin’ Donuts chain because it can also turn into a “Tambayan ng Bayan”, with its stores open 24 hours a day. I can still remember when we use to bring our textbooks to the place and spend our grouped study there overnight (there’s a lot of hot coffee to drink!). Now, if you want to become a franchisee and if you wish to get a slice of their global success, the following will guide you on how to start your own Dunkin’ Donuts outlet.

What is the basis for approving an application?
Applications are evaluated based on two initial factors:

1. Site/locations of prospective outlet
2. Personal qualifications of the applicant

Who provides the outlet’s personnel?
The franchise operators are empowered to employ their own team members. Dunkin’ Donuts will assist you in the recruitment process and will provide the necessary training for personnel.

What is the term of the franchise agreement?
The term of the franchise agreement varies. (Contracts are renewable for another term upon the Franchisee’s compliance with renewal criteria and good operating performance prior to the renewal.)

Who will prepare the building plans? Who will do the construction?
The building plans will have to be prepared by the franchisee through its commissioned architect and the construction will have to be done by the franchisees contractor. Golden Donuts, Inc. will provide the guidelines for the building plans. They have Dunkin’ Donuts-accredited contractors that you may commission if you wish but if you have a preferred and trusted contractor, that would be perfectly fine, too as long as it conforms with the standard construction guidelines of Golden Donuts, Inc.! The cost of the construction is something that you must prepare for.
