Dunkin’ Donuts to Enter U.K. With a Start in East London

Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc., the owner of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and doughnut shops, plans to expand the chain into the U.K. with as many as 150 stores in five years.

The company, which already operates 100 Baskin Robbins ice cream parlors in the U.K., signed franchise agreements with Court Group and DDMG Ltd, and each plans to open 25 stores in East London. Dunkin’ is in advanced discussions with other investors for the balance of the U.K. stores, the company said in a statement.
