“Our new franchisee, Alimentacion Mexico Americana, has extensive quick-service restaurant and operations experience in Mexico, and we are thrilled they have chosen to expand the Dunkin’ Donuts brand in the Yucatán region,” said Grant Benson, vice president of global franchising and business development for Dunkin’ Brands. “As we continue our ongoing expansion throughout the country, these new restaurants will satisfy a growing consumer demand for Dunkin’ Donuts in Mexico.”

Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Mexico will feature the brand’s wide range of hot and iced coffees, lattes, espressos, cappuccinos, teas, frozen drinks, croissants, donuts and sandwiches. The brand will also offer regional menu items to cater to local tastes.
