Baskin-Robbins to Develop Restaurants Across Ireland

Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, has announced plans to develop restaurants across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. This effort is part of Dunkin’ Brands’ ongoing strategy to increase its presence across Europe, a key region for the Baskin-Robbins brand, as it continues to grow globally.

Baskin-Robbins is looking to recruit qualified, well-capitalised multi-unit licensee groups with deep retail or foodservice operating experience to develop the brand across Ireland in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Waterford/Wexford and Belfast. The brand is seeking two franchise groups to develop five locations in The Republic of Ireland and three shops in Northern Ireland over the next several years, or a single group for the entire territory. Ideal licensee candidates will have strong financial backgrounds, knowledge of their local consumers and a proven track record of success in the restaurant industry.

“Ireland represents a tremendous opportunity for Baskin-Robbins as we look to continue growing the brand internationally,” says Jeremy Vitaro, vice president of international development for Dunkin’ Brands. “We feel our value proposition – high-quality ice cream, ice cream cakes and frozen beverages, served in a friendly environment and at a great value – will resonate well with consumers throughout Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland.”

Baskin-Robbins has a strong presence globally, with more than 7,500 Baskin-Robbins locations in nearly 50 countries worldwide. The brand currently has over 500 restaurants across Europe, including more than 140 Baskin-Robbins locations in the United Kingdom.
