Dunkin' Donuts has signed a multi-unit store development agreement with new franchise group, Wabash Valley Donuts, Inc., to develop three new restaurants in Terre Haute, Indiana. The first restaurant under the agreement is planned to open in 2017.
Wabash Valley Donuts, Inc. is made up of Terre Haute-native and former NFL Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tony McGee, alongside his partner Mark McCreery for his post-NFL career venture. Rounding out this group is Greg Lansing, who is the current Men's Basketball coach at Indiana State University. This team, which has run successful QSR industry brands in the past, will manage and oversee the operations for each restaurant.
"We are excited to expand the brand's presence in Terre Haute and play an important role in the daily lives of people who live, work and visit here," said Tony McGee, 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 Evansville. 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, according to the company.
