We are thrilled to announce that Epic MSLGROUP has been appointed to support the launch of global quick service brands - Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins - in South Africa. Both brands will be launched by Grand Foods, a division of Grand Parade Investments Limited, as part of its strategy to expand its food portfolio by investing in market-leading brands, and to diversify the local food and beverage industry.
