Dunkin Donuts franchisee teams up with Drew Brees to open more locations in Louisiana

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is on to his next fast food venture.

The Jimmy John’s franchisee is partnering up with Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee Vik Patel to open nearly 70 new Dunkin Donuts locations, The Advocate reports. The stores will open in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Monroe and Alexandria in the next few years.

“Drew (Brees) has proven his commitment to New Orleans – both on and off the field – and we couldn’t ask for a better partner to help expand Dunkin’ Donuts’ presence in Louisiana,” Patel said in a news release, according to The Advocate. “We’re excited to open our first few restaurants under this partnership next year, and developing even more restaurants over the long-term.”

The first of the 69 new locations will open sometime this year.
