Former Univer­sity of Texas foot­ball star — and cur­rent Cleve­land Browns quar­ter­back — Colt McCoy is one of sev­eral in­vestors plan­ning to open 24 Dunkin’ Donuts lo­ca­tions in Cen­tral Texas.

The group, Cof­fee Ac­tion West LLC, has also ac­quired the area’s two ex­ist­ing Dunkin’ Donuts restau­rants, lo­cated in Round Rock and on U.S. 183 in North­west Austin, the com­pany said Mon­day.

Cedar Park will be the site of Cof­fee Ac­tion West’s first newly built lo­ca­tion, with plans to open by April 1. Of the 24 soon-to-open fran­chises, 21 will be tra­di­tional Dunkin’ Donuts restau­rants. The re­main­ing three will have Baskin-Rob­bins ice cream shops shar­ing space with Dunkin’ Donuts.

Fi­nanc­ing for Cof­fee Ac­tion West comes from a New York fi­nan­cial in­vest­ment firm, the com­pany said.

“The rea­son we picked Austin, ob­vi­ously, is be­cause Colt loves it there,” said Dale Mul­vey, one of Cof­fee Ac­tion
