MECHANICSBURG, PA (July 12, 2022) –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.

LTD., is set to open 10 locations throughout Thailand over the next five years. The first location, which is expected to open late 2022, will be in the country’s capital, Bangkok.
"Thailand’s landscape is full of dessert cafés and with the growth of the country’s social and economic development, this presents a great opportunity for new businesses such as Duck Donuts to be successful in the Thai market," said Betsy Hamm, Duck Donuts CEO. "We are looking forward to partnering with The Great Restaurant Group and leveraging their knowledge of the Thai market as we begin to introduce Duck Donuts throughout the country.”

“Thais love their desserts, and Bangkok, the most populous city of Thailand, has a passion for food, a unique cosmopolitan vibe, multiculturalism and flourishing culinary scene,” said Kim. “Duck Donuts offers a well-known treat, but in a different way with its fresh donuts and made-to-order options, a concept that will make a great addition to the vibrant Bangkok community,”
