Dunkin’ Donuts has signed a development agreement with local franchisee Luis Ribeiro for eight new locations in the Rochester area, company officials announced Wednesday.

“We expect 10 to 20 new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants to open in Rochester over the next few years, and we are very pleased with Dunkin’ Donuts success and continued growth in the market,” said Grant Benson, the company’s vice president of franchising and business development, in a statement.

“Our passionate franchisees provide a high-level of customer service to our loyal guests every day, and we believe Luis and our franchisees will continue to grow and be an important part of the community.

Ribeiro owns 25 of the 61 Dunkin’ Donuts shops in the Rochester market.

“I have a strong passion and loyalty for Dunkin’ Donuts and look forward to further expanding the brand in the Rochester area in the years to come,” Ribeiro said.

Based in Canton, Mass., Dunkin' Donuts is part of the Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. family of companies.
