The saying “location is everything” is famous for a good reason because finding the right location for your business will be the difference between success and failure, and it is usually the dealmaker in starting a donut shop or top donut franchise. An investment with Shipley Do-Nuts not only offers multi-unit franchise opportunities to assist you in maximizing your success rate, but we also take care of the stress and admin of finding the perfect location for your next donut franchise! 


Thorough Understanding of Your Demographics


To maximize your chances of success, you must thoroughly know the demographics of the territory in which you want to open your franchise. Finding the right location can be stressful, confusing, and tedious if you don’t know much about the QSR industry


As a well-established brand in Texas, with over 340 locations already, and expansion plans throughout Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee, and Florida—with a continuity growth plan in Oklahoma and Colorado within the next few years, Shipley Do-Nuts has the experience of finding the right location for your donut franchises due to the brand’s growth, with multiple ideal locations available for your perusal. 


Store Development Support for Your Shipley Do-Nuts Franchise


Each franchisee is responsible for buying or renting real estate and contracting to build their restaurant. At Shipley Do-Nuts, we actively support the growth of your store. Our real estate and development team will be happy to assist you with determining the most profitable locations for opening your donut shops with excellent visibility and traffic patterns for your store. We will also help you with architectural drawings, work with your general contractor to ensure proper construction, and manage your equipment orders to alleviate the pressure on you. 


Our Multi-Unit Opportunities: A Batch Made in Heaven


With the QSR industry estimated to grow by 6.5% by 2026, being a multiple-unit donut franchise owner is a delicious batch made in heaven! Owning more than one Shipley franchise comes with lots of perks, like shared resources across multiple locations and more brand presence, and you can count on us to help you find and build the perfect glazing spot. 


Our knowledge and experience in the QSR and franchising industry can be invaluable in helping you make a more well-informed decision about investing in our multi-unit franchises as well as growing your business portfolio. The sweet and short of it is that when it comes to starting a donut shop, like any other business, location does matter, and this is something we consider and prioritize in ensuring the success of your franchises. 


As Shipley Do-Nuts, we are prudent, thorough, and careful with researching the right location for your donut shops. We also provide you with the comprehensive training, support, and resources needed to give you the best start against competitors – so that being part of our glazing family can be an investment opportunity worth your while!
