Commenting on the company's new outlet in Uptown Mirdiff, by Michael Cortelletti, International Director, Europe & Middle East, Dunkin' Brands Inc., said, "UAE is an important market for the brand within the Middle East & Europe with ground-breaking innovation, like the opening of the first drive-through." "The highest concentration of Dunkin' Donuts stores has been achieved so far in the UAE," he added.

A recent customer survey showed that nearly half (47 per cent) its clientele in the UAE comprised UAE nationals and Arab expatriates while Asians accounted for around 23 per cent of its customer base.
