WASHINGTON — Does America run on Dunkin’? Recent sales reports say yes.
Reuters reported that Dunkin’ Donuts’ parent company, Dunkin’ Brands Group, saw its profits rise as more people went to its Dunkin’ Donuts stores and bought its products. The group also owns Baskin-Robbins, the ice cream store chain.
Sales rose 3.5% this past quarter, ending December 28, boosted by iced coffee and breakfast sandwich sales. The stores make up 75% of the company’s total sales and is a good sign for the company, which is competing with the likes of Einstein Bagels.
