Dunkin’ Donuts is to open a new store in Hounslow, as part of its newest franchise agreement.

The restaurant will be opened as part of the Ghataaura Group, which has called for the development of 25 restaurants in the UK over the next five years. The brand currently has four shops; in Harrow, Chelmsford, Cambridge and Woolwich.

To celebrate the opening, Dunkin’ Donuts will hold a family fun day on 29 July, where there will be activities and an NYPD police car with two policemen.

Jim Johnstone, general manager UK for the brand, said: “We’re pleased to announce the opening of our new Hounslow restaurant, in agreement with Ghataaura Group, whose leaders have a wealth of experience in the local area, to develop the Dunkin’ Donuts brand in West London.

“We look forward to keeping even more guests in the United Kingdom going with Dunkin’ Donuts’ delicious range of hot and iced beverages, sandwiches and baked goods.”

Ghataaura Group is a family business, which has recently opened an ice cream parlour with Baskin-Robbins, sister brand of Dunkin’ Donuts.

Ash Ghataaura, director of Ghataaura Group, said: “Dunkin’ Donuts is known around the world for its wide selection of high-quality food and beverages, as well as its speed of service, so we’re proud to bring the Dunkin’ Donuts experience to Hounslow

“We look forward to becoming a destination of choice for our busy, on-the-go guests in the area.”

Dunkin’ Donuts was founded in 1950 and currently has nearly 11,000 restaurants in 33 countries.
