Dunkin’ Donuts’ newest international restaurant, owned and operated by Dunkin’ Donuts’ franchise partner, Bahamas QSR, Ltd., a member of The Myers Group of Companies, has opened its flagship restaurant in the Bahamas in downtown Nassau. This opening marks a key milestone in the gradual revitalization of the city.
Dunkin’ Brands chairman Jon Luther and Dunkin’ Brands CEO Nigel Travis will celebrate the opening at an open house at 11:00 am. During the open house, customers will have an opportunity to sample delicious Dunkin’ Donuts menu items.
Bahamas QSR, Ltd. opened its first two Dunkin’ Donuts shops at the Lynden Pindling International Airport in March 2009. Additional stores are planned to open on the island by the end of this year.
“We are very excited to welcome The Bahamas to our growing list of international restaurant locations in the Caribbean,” said Nigel Travis, Dunkin’ Brands CEO. “We are pleased with the positive response to the two Dunkin’ Donuts airport restaurants and we are confident island residents will embrace Dunkin’ Donuts’ commitment to deliver high-quality coffee and baked goods fast, fresh and at an affordable price.”
“Dunkin’ Donuts is proud to serve the visitors and hard-working people of The Bahamas,” said George Myers, chairman and CEO, The Myers Group of Companies, Ltd. “The restaurant will benefit regular downtown customers who love great tasting coffee and baked goods, as well as local businesses that can benefit from our special catering capabilities.”
Dunkin’ Donuts opened its first international restaurant in Japan in 1970. Today, Dunkin’ Donuts has more than more than 6,300 Dunkin’ Donuts shops in the United States and more than 2,500 shops in thirty countries including Korea, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Columbia, and most recently China.
