Surfside Coffee Company

Surfside Coffee Company is a Dunkin’ Donuts franchise network based in southern Florida.

Based in Miami, Florida, Surfside was recently formed through the purchase of two southern Florida based Dunkin’ franchise networks and is now the largest Dunkin’ franchise network in Florida. The Company operates units in and around Fort Myers, Miami and the Florida Keys and owns a Store Development Agreement (“SDA”) which protects new unit development by outside parties in select territories in each of these areas.

The Opportunity

Fireman Capital Partners identified an opportunity to expand Dunkin’ Donuts, the number one ranked coffee brand in customer loyalty for eight consecutive years, in the underpenetrated, fast-growing, southern Florida market. FCP plans to aggressively grow Surfside through a combination of new store development, increases in same-store sales and acquisitions of smaller franchise networks in markets adjacent to the SDA geographies.

The Partnership with FCP

Fireman Capital Partners is excited about this opportunity and is positioned to add significant value to the company as it continues to expand its footprint through southern Florida. FCP will leverage its resources and relationships in franchising, restaurant operations, and the food and beverage industry in order to add value to the company.

I am thrilled to lead the Surfside team and work closely with FCP, an industry leader with a proven track record of growing successful retail and food and beverage companies. I’ve been in and around the Dunkin’ Donuts system for over ten years, and I’ve never been more excited about the brand and the market opportunity in southern Florida.
