Former Merchant Marine Todd LaLumiere founded Maritime Coffee Time LLC in 2003, beginning his franchisee career having chosen Annapolis, MD due to his connection with the water and sailing. After travelling from Maine to MD each week and living on a sailboat in the Chesapeake Bay while he oversaw his first location being built, store number one was opened in the historic town of Stevensville on the eastern shore of Maryland. After many hardships and with some help from an old hockey friend, LaLumiere’s first stab at fast food became the highest grossing Dunkin’ Donuts in the state of Maryland. Four stores and eight years later a new location was opened in the historic district of Annapolis with the building also serving as his office. This marks his commitment to his brand in the heart of Maryland, and as Maritime Coffee Time grows and more stores open their doors, he will be there in person to ensure they hold up to those same standards his current stores have set.
