Rochester, New York, – Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, today announced it has opened two new restaurants in the Greater Rochester area at 544 Main St. in Palmyra, NY and at 1300 Jefferson Rd. in Henrietta, NY.
The restaurants are the first of eight scheduled to open under franchisee Luis Ribeiro in the Greater Rochester area in the coming years following the August 2013 announcement of a multi-unit store development agreement. Ribeiro now owns 28 of the 64 Dunkin’ Donuts in the Greater Rochester area. Overall, Dunkin’ Donuts plans to open as many as 20 restaurants in the Greater Rochester area over the next few years, including the first Downtown Rochester location in early summer.
“I am excited to open these restaurants as Dunkin’ Donuts continues to expand its presence in the Greater Rochester area,” Ribeiro said. “We look forward to further expanding the brand in the region and serving our loyal guests who live, work and visit here.”
Dunkin’ Donuts also announced the arrival of Coffee Squares in participating Rochester-area locations. Rochester is one of just four markets nationwide to offer the sweet treats, which are smooth and rich like chocolate but made with real Dunkin’ Donuts coffee for $2.99.
