Obligations and restrictions: Franchisees must continue their efforts to develop, manage and manage their business. This means that sufficient time and resources are required to ensure that commitments to the franchisor, its customers and others are fully met. If franchisees choose to use a company (partnership, business or LLC) to operate in a restaurant, franchisees and their senior executives, directors, shareholders, members and partners (if any), this must personally guarantee the performance of all of the franchisee`s obligations in the contract and leasing (if any). Franchisees may not engage in other activities or stores in the restaurant without the prior written permission of the franchisor. Franchisees may only offer or sell products authorized by the franchisor and must sell the full menu required by the franchisor. Franchisees are not allowed to sell or distribute goods or services using the internet or other electronic communications without the franchisor`s prior written permission. Franchise Description: The franchisor is Dunkin` Donuts Franchising LLC. Franchise restaurants sell coffee, doughnuts, bagels, muffins, compatible baked goods, sandwiches and other food and beverage products compatible with the franchisor concept. The types of restaurants offered are: Term of contract and extension: The duration of the franchise is generally 20 years. The laws of some states require a franchisor to renew a franchise agreement, unless it has good reason not to renew itself. If franchisees and their franchise agreement can be renewed in accordance with these laws, the franchisor will propose an extension, as required by law. Training Overview: Franchisees must manage their network at any time with at least two people, one of whom is a franchisee or another partner, shareholder (if the franchisee is a corporation) or a member (if the franchisee is a limited liability company) and the other must be a designated representative; Both must complete the required training program, which may vary depending on the role played in their organization.
The Dunkin`Brand training program takes at least 15 days to complete the teaching phases. (These days must not follow one another.) This does not include online training, restaurant practices (usually in the domestic franchisee market) or travel time and is offered at Dunkin` Brands University in Braintree, Massachusetts, or at a specific training restaurant. Some of the courses required by the franchisor are only offered on the Internet and are called online training. These classes take about 65 hours. This is in addition to the formations listed above. In addition, for the first restaurant, the franchisor may require franchisees to participate in the opening of another restaurant for up to 10 days. Franchisees must participate and require their staff to undergo ongoing training, as the franchisor may request from time to time. This training may require a trip to the franchisor`s training centre.
Territory granted: Franchisees have the right to operate a restaurant in a given location, indicated in the franchise agreement or its exhibits, and only in that location. Franchisees do not benefit from additional rights, minimum areas or other protected rights. Franchisees are not allowed to distribute products other than their restaurants, including alternative distribution channels. The initial investment estimate covers the different variations of the types of restaurants mentioned above. For more information, see FDD.
