IAONE Commercial Real Estate Group, in a development partnership with Quality Brand Group—the largest Dunkin’ franchisee west of the Mississippi River—to grow its store network to 200-plus stores in Arizona and the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area.
“During these very uncertain times, Dunkin' has proven its ability to creatively evolve and adapt to unforeseen events and continue to provide what our customers desire,” says Conrad Wilkerson, director of real estate for Quality Brand Group and director of the Private Client Services Group with VIAONE, in a company statement. “Quality Brand Group has thrived and remained profitable during the COVID-19 pandemic by keeping all of its drive-thru stores open in Arizona and Dallas/Ft. Worth, and providing its customers with the same quality products and customer service.”
Quality Brand Group currently owns approximately 62 Dunkin’ locations in Arizona and 20 in Dallas/Ft. Worth. According to the company, its success during the pandemic is thanks to its people, leadership team and company core values of faith, family and business.

Customers turned to the trusted Dunkin' brand during this time of uncertainty because we continued to offer the same service and quality products at a great value that our customers have grown to trust and love since 1950, reinforcing that Dunkin’ is America’s No. 1 retailer of hot and iced coffee by the cup.”
