Page Ventures, LCC, a Dunkin’ Donuts franchise in Buffalo, solely made the decision to reduce their store base, they said. The decision aims to “streamline and strengthen” their business, according to the statement.

“The decision to close 13 out of 26 restaurants was a difficult decision, but one that we felt was necessary for our organization at the time,” said Jason Saghir of Page Ventures, LLC. “We have chosen to take this action to create a leaner, more efficient business.”

The statement also said Page Ventures apologizes for any inconveniences the closures may cause.
