Dunkin' Donuts announced the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with new franchise group, Ozark Donuts, LLC, to develop three new restaurants in Springfield, Missouri. The first restaurant is planned to open at 4020 S. Campbell Avenue in December 2015, with the remainder opening by 2019.

Led by Thomas and Cory Roebuck, these new franchises possess over 30 years of experience in the restaurant and retail industries. Together, this father and son team will manage and oversee the construction and operations for each Dunkin' Donuts restaurant.

"We are excited to expand the brand's presence in Missouri and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here," said Cory Roebuck, 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 still remain available in Joplin, Missouri and Tulsa, Oklahoma. To help fuel growth in Missouri and Oklahoma, 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 these new franchisees have joined the Missouri market, and know these new restaurants they are developing will satisfy a growing consumer demand in the Springfield community."
