Dubai-based Galadari Food and Beverage Division has announced it will bring Dunkin' to the Omani market with a store in the Mall of Oman shopping centre in Muscat.
Galadari has not yet disclosed an opening date for Dunkin's Omani launch.
The Dubai-based franchise group currently operates Dunkin’ in Qatar, where it has 24 stores, and more than 1,000 Baskin Robbins outlets across the Middle East, North Africa and Australia.
Galadari, a subsidiary of Dubai-based conglomerate Galadari Brothers Group, opened its first Baskin Robbins store in the UAE in Dubai in 1979.
Both Dunkin’ and Baskin Robbins are operated by US hospitality group Inspire Brands.
Dunkin’ currently operates approximately 800 stores across eight markets in the Middle East, including more than 600 outlets in Saudi Arabia where the brand opened 30 new stores in a single day in October 2022.
The US donut and bakery chain also has outlets across Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco and the UAE via franchise partners Shahia Food Limited Company and Alamar Foods Egypt.
World Coffee Portal research forecasts the 165-strong Omani branded coffee shop will exceed 240 outlets by 2027, led by growth in its coffee-focused segment.
