Customers wake up and smell the coffee at Dunn's, where every unit roasts beans on site. This year, the 97-unit chain plans to open 15 to 20 more, says CEO Chris Eilers. Beverages run five to 10 cents more than the competition's, but the freshly roasted product "makes a difference in taste that customers are willing to pay for." While franchise inquiries are down slightly this year, same store comps are positive, Eilers says.
