Dunkin' Donuts on Thursday announced the signing of a multi-unit store development agreement with new franchisees, Doug Patterson and Cameron Stapleton to develop three new restaurants throughout northern Colorado in the surrounding areas of Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor and Estes Park.
The first restaurant is expected to open in 2015 and the remainder by 2017.
Stapleton will manage and oversee the company's daily operations for each restaurant. Patterson is an experienced member in the franchising industry, and has served on the board for the International Franchise Association.
"We are very excited to begin serving these great communities throughout northern Colorado, which also includes two state universities," Patterson said. "We have a passion and loyalty for the brand and look forward to the opening of our Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in the years to come."
Last month, Dunkin' Donuts opened its first location in Denver at 366 North Broadway. The restaurant hosted a grand opening celebration on Sept. 24. The restaurant employs approximately 60 crew members.
Dunkin' Donuts has been around since the 1950s.
