Dunkin' Donuts is seeking larger franchisees as it ramps up for an aggressive expansion that includes plans for 15,000 franchised stores nationwide by 2020. "We've grown with a lot of franchisees that started with one or two locations and grew to 100 plus," said Lynette McKee, the company's vice president of franchising. "But for us to be able to grow at the rate and pace that we'd like to, we had to look at a faster way to do it."
