Open a Dunkin' Donuts franchise by submitting a successful application to its corporate office and following its steps for acquiring and running your own franchise. Dunkin' Donuts has very stringent guidelines for becoming a franchisee. Each step of the process is laid out so that only the most qualified applicants become business owners and so that existing franchisees' businesses remain successful.
The first step in becoming a Dunkin' Donuts franchisee is making sure that you are looking to operate in an open market. If you are in, or can relocate to, an area where the company has room for a new store, then you can fill out the application. The corporate office wants to know what kind of experience you have, as it wants its potential franchisees to have management and food service experience along with a good sense of the real estate development process. The corporate office wants to evaluate your business plan and to ensure that you have the minimum liquid assets and net worth to operate your own franchise successfully. If you are in an open market and have enough assets and net worth, you could potentially be allowed to own 10 or more Dunkin' Donuts franchises.
