* With more than 12,500 locations in over 45 countries, we are looking for exceptional franchise candidates to help keep America runnin' on Dunkin' every day.
Both Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins brands are performing well in the Middle East, and the company expects that with time it will be able to establish both brands in China.
The international segment comprises nearly 10% of Dunkin’ Brands valuation, as per our estimates, and a faster growth in this segment could lead to an upside in its valuation.
Theses generic strategies include the differentiation strategy, the cost leadership strategy, and the focus strategy.
While the cost and differentiation strategies are implemented industry wide, the focus strategy is only used for individual business segments.
Dunkin' Brands' high margin business is attractive for existing and new franchises and the company also plans to continue its focus on franchise profitability.
This franchise model can drive faster growth in the number of restaurants and we believe ensuring that the franchise opportunity remains attractive would be key for the company's growth in the future.
