This growing coffee chain is ready to explode
A once-hot company may soon take a backseat to a rising rival. Here's why.
Hey, me too.
But this is about an investment idea, and a very good one.
I don't care who's POTUS, I got to take care of my families future.
So, in a tough economy, people tend to trade down and/or shop less.
If they don't (can't) make a delicious pot of coffee for pennies like I do, a lot of them will trade down.
I'm putting DNKN on my watch list as soon as I finish this post, and I'll be doin' my homework as I watch this market/economy come to grips.
Thanks to the author, Mr. Goodboy, for a well written, informative article.
That's why I come in here in the first place.
I would have thought Starboogieman, might have copied Dunkin' 10,000 stores is nothing to sneeze or cough at...And I rember where there use to be more Dunkin' Donut Shops...
Some of the older locations probably closed a few years ago..??
Some of their properties were in valuable locations.
And Coffee shops or Houses have been around since early 50s or before, where the Bohemians or Hippies hung out...And people(actors/comedians/musicians) tried out their Wares and new material.
Dunkin Donuts and coffe has been around for over 40 years...Always had good coffee with a slightly different flavor then homemade brew..
More robust with a deeper flavor...
They may not have been noticed that much until their IPO in 2011 ??
But they have been around forever as "privately owned franchises."
Unless they re-organized a few years back...?
And possibly they were a Regional type company...?
Some of us would make them our coffee stop and get fresh rolls or donuts back in the early '70s.
