“We believe that the warmth and uniqueness of Duck Donuts will resonate with the Filipino community. We are excited to embark on this journey of sweet success in partnership with Bert Bravo and leverage his knowledge of the market and industry as we begin to introduce Duck Donuts throughout the country of the Philippines,” said Betsy Hamm, CEO, Duck Donuts.
“I saw the potential of Duck Donuts when I first heard about it from my colleagues in California. We are excited to bring the unique, customisable donuts to our country,” added Bert Bravo, CEO, Bravo Foods Corp.
Duck Donuts currently operates 145 stores across 25 US states alongside international sites in Canada, Puerto Rico, Thailand, Egypt, Pakistan and Qatar. The franchise donut and coffee chain expects to open 10 new international stores this year and also has franchise agreements to launch in Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, Australia and the UK.
