RFS LLC signed a multi-store-development agreement and plans to open its first location in the next 12 months, said a news release.
The release did not indicate exact locations for the restaurants and only said RFS principles are local businessmen.
Dunkin’ said it is looking for additional franchisees to open locations in the area, including numerous outlying counties.
The opening of the stores is part of Dunkin’ Donut’s growth strategy, which includes expanding in potential and existing markets, said the release.
The Dunkin’ Donuts franchise has 7,900 restaurants in 30 countries and had $5.3 billion in worldwide sales in 2007.
It opened its first Alabama location under the new expansion plan in February in Dothan and plans to open 142 statewide over the next several years.
