Indian Restaurateur Teja Chekuri's Golden Horn Group Acquires 9 US Dunkin' Franchisees for $ 18 Million

India based global entrepreneur Teja Chekuri has acquired nine(9) US Dunkin franchisees this week for $ 18,000,000 via their company Golden Horn Group.

The iconic American brand Dunkin' Donuts LLC, also known as Dunkin and by the initials DD, is an American multinational coffee and doughnut company, as well as a quick service restaurant and one of the largest coffee and donut chains in the world. Founded by Bill Rosenberg in 1950, the company is headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts and is famous for its product range that includes donuts, bagels, coffee, and "Munchkins" donut holes.

The Dunkin brand currently operates 13,000 franchisees worldwide.

Nine of these that are in Sharon, Hanover, Weymouth, Braintree, Quincy in Massachusetts are now owned by the Golden Horn Group and will be operated under OM Network LLC.

“This is a historic move for our company because getting a Dunkin’ franchisee is really tough. They have set an impressive benchmark of growth in the industry which when achieved enhances progress. As an official Dunkin franchisee, we now have the opportunity to lead the brand in a new direction of growth. We start with 9 Dunkin stores in and around Boston, Massachusetts today,” shared Chekuri who together with his business partner Mitesh Patel lead the deal as they aim for 150 outlets in the next 5 years across several US cities.


The official Dunkin approval for this acquisition took almost 2 years and the transition of ownership will be a detailed process that will be completed in 6-8 months.

“To achieve this, we are in the process of strengthening backend systems that will enable us to grow faster. Our current expertise in establishing international concepts in the global restaurant industry will add to the vibrancy and growth of the brand as we restructure teams to chase this target,” added Chekuri.
