"Dunkin’s franchise arm claims that Houman and Heather Baiany, the owners of four Dunkin’ locations in Boston and Somerville, submitted two checks totaling $7,498 for reimbursement from the company, claiming they were allowable charitable donations to the annual fund of the private, 37-acre boys’ school."

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
