"As a military veteran used to having strict systems in place, transitioning into a company such as Dunkin’ Donuts that offered a strong, cross-functional support structure was essential for me to build my business," said Ray Omar. "The tools and resources my field teams brought to me were invaluable. Whether I needed helped with site selection, construction management, crew training or operations, I was always able to consult with a subject matter expert to ensure that I was making the best possible decision. With their support and guidance, I was empowered.” - Ray Omar, an Army Veteran and DD franchisee in the DC area.
