Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. is a American restaurant holdings company which runs two chains of fast-food restaurants: Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins. It is headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts.[2]


On December 12, 2005, Pernod Ricard, who had just taken control of Allied Domecq, announced plans to sell the Dunkin' Brands group. Dunkin' Brands was later sold to a consortium of private equity firms consisting of Bain Capital, The Carlyle Group and Thomas H. Lee Partners for $2.425 billion in cash.

In August 2012, Dunkin' Brands became completely independent of the private equity firms.[3]
