Shipley Do-Nuts recently signed a development agreement with Adkins Development Corp. to accelerate expansion in the Dallas/Fort Worth market. The agreement requires Adkins to open a minimum of 60 stores over a 15 year period. The President of Adkins Development Corp., Phil Adkins, has over 18 years’ experience as a Shipley Do-Nuts franchise owner, and has served as a Shipley franchise developer in Austin and Waco, TX.
“We are looking forward to increasing our store footprint within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex,” says Shipley Do-Nuts Franchise Director, Ron Hankamer, Jr. “We currently have 11 stores in DFW and we anticipate doubling that number in the next few years. Our partnership with Adkins will enable us to maintain a local office, meet more franchisee candidates, and expedite the site selection process.”
