McCoy part of Dunkin’ buyers
Former UT football player one of investors hoping to bring more doughnut shops here.
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
