Here are the information you need to begin your own Mister Donut franchise, including franchise fee, application details, and contact information.
About Mister Donut
In 1955, American Harry Winokur began selling doughnuts in Boston, Massachusetts. The Mister Donut business became popular that others began to crave for a piece of the business.
As a result, Mister Donut went into franchising — selling franchises to entrepreneurs. Mister Donut eventually began rapid expansion resulting in the opening of several hundred stores across the USA and Canada. In 1970, food company International Multifoods Corp. acquired Mister Donut and its franchising concept from the Mister Donut’s founder. Then in 1983, Duskin Co. Ltd. of Japan acquired the sales and trademark rights for Asia from Mister Donut America. This paved the way for the introduction of Mister Donut, not only in Japan, but even in other countries including the Philippines. Mister Donut started its first store in the Philippines in 1982.
In 1990, Mister Donut in the U.S. was acquired by Allied-Lyons, also the owner of Dunkin’ Donuts, and all Mister Donut shops were given the option to change their name to Dunkin’ Donuts. As of 2017, only one Mister Donut outlet remains in the U.S. Meanwhile, in Asia, Japan-based Duskin Co., Ltd. continues to operate Mister Donut franchises in Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
