Duck Donuts® Awards Master Franchise Agreements in Egypt

Master Franchisees Plan to Develop 25 Duck Donuts Locations Over Five Years

MECHANICSBURG, PA (May 20, 2021) – Duck Donuts, one of the nation’s fastest growing donut franchise companies known for serving Warm, Delicious and Made-to-Order!® donuts, announced today the continuation of its international expansion with the signing of a new master franchise agreement with Masters Food, awarding the rights to develop and sub franchise in Egypt. Master Foods is set to open 25 locations throughout Egypt over the next five years. The first location, which is expected to open later in 2021, will be in Cairo Festival City, a mixed-use urban community located east of the ring road in the heart of New Cairo.

"We are very excited to announce our expansion to Egypt and enter into this partnership with Master Foods, a group who is eager and ready to integrate the Duck Donuts brand within a country filled with rich history,” said Betsy Hamm, Duck Donuts CEO. "Not only are Egyptians always looking to try something new, especially desserts, but the culture has a strong focus on family values, which aligns perfectly with our brand.”

The master franchisees also own Master Express in Egypt, a managing group of retail stores including premium gas stations and convenient stores. Master Express is well known for providing premium quality and fast service for customers on the road, in a safe and friendly environment.

“I discovered Duck Donuts in Dubai and instantly knew this unique brand and made-to-order experience would make a great fit within the Egyptian culture that appreciates high-quality foods,” said Ahmed Sabat, Duck Donuts Egypt co-owner. “Duck Donuts will land in the heart of Cairo and soon we will be able to sprinkle a taste of happiness to those throughout Egypt.”
