DALLAS – Shipley Do-Nuts is launching a major expansion into Dallas and Fort Worth, bringing new 60 doughnut outlets into north Texas.
Shipley has 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.
“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.”
Shipley Do-Nuts originated in 1936 in Houston where it still maintains its offices and production facility. Today, Shipley Do-Nuts is under the leadership of Lawrence Shipley, III and is rapidly approaching 300 franchises with locations in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
