In general, the Dunkin' Donuts franchise likes to look for franchisees who are able to run at least five locations, according to Grant Benson, the brand's vice president of franchising and business development. However, that isn't always possible, he noted.

"We tend to discount those in some of our newer markets on a sliding scale," he explained.
