Dunkin' Donuts expanding in Arkansas

Calling Arkansas a priority growth market, Dunkin' Donuts has announced that it will expand its footprint in Arkansas by opening several new franchises in the area.

The restaurant said Friday that it has signed agreements with two franchisees to develop 11 new restaurants over the next several years.

The plan is for four restaurants in Hot Springs and Benton and seven in the Northwest Arkansas area. The first location is scheduled to open in 2012 and the remaining locations are scheduled to open by 2015.

"We're excited to expand our footprint in Arkansas," said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of franchising and market planning, Dunkin' Brands Inc. "We're confident these franchisees will cultivate lasting customer relationships in the Little Rock and Fort Smith area and become an integral part of their respective communities."

Little Rock is now sold out for franchise sales, but opportunities are still available in Jonesboro and Northeast Arkansas.

Historically a doughnut and hot coffee chain, Dunkin' Donuts has expanded its offering to include frozen and iced beverages, baked good and sandwiches.

I'm confused. 4 restaurants in Benton & Hot Springs but the Little Rock area is sold out? Is there a big chunk of information missing from this article?

Sorry, but I'm not driving to Benton to get a friggin' doughnut. Or a donut.
