The exciting pace of growth for D.P. Dough was outlined today in the Columbus Biz Insider. The story, and interview with our CEO, Matt Crumpton, outlines our plans for growth with a 9-store investor deal in the Midwest, upcoming openings in Tempe, Arizona and Minneapolis, Minnesota, and our revamped efforts in franchisee recruitment. Here is snippet:
“D.P. Dough is ready to get back to school(s) but only after learning plenty on its own.
The college-focused calzone delivery chain, with sites in Athens and on North High Street just south of Ohio State University, was founded in Massachusetts in 1987, but since 2011 has called Ohio its corporate home. That’s when Columbus-based Matt Crumpton and his Medina-living parents Mark and Kim Crumpton bought the business. More on that in a second.
First, Matt is the new CEO of D.P. Dough Franchising LLC, taking over for his father who is moving into different roles with the business, including overseeing some planned corporate stores. The chain has added four new sites since the Crumpton’s took over. It has 21 restaurants and average unit sales are $733,210, but more importantly the groundwork is in place to grow.
‘We’re primed,’ Matt Crumpton told me. ‘We’re ready to roll.'”
