What Inspire Brands is building with its Dunkin’ acquisition

This week’s episode of the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” features a discussion with Editor-at-Large Peter Romeo on some recent deals in the restaurant industry.


Timeline: Inspire Brands goes on a shopping spree

Dunkin’ Brands will be the company’s fourth major deal. Here’s how the company became an industry force.


The former Procter & Gamble executive will oversee advertising, digital innovation, menu development and brand experience.

Inspire Brands, which also owns Buffalo Wild Wings, Sonic and Jimmy John's, has trademarked some brand names for shared kitchens for takeout and delivery.

Drinks that double as desserts are trending on menus.

The parent of Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Sonic and Jimmy John’s has promoted one of its founding executives.

The newly formed Quality Restaurant Group adds a second brand and names Matthew Slaine CEO.

His promotion from CMO was announced almost simultaneously with the appointment of his predecessor as CEO of Papa John’s.

The brand’s new owner is betting the deal will appeal to midweek customers without the margin pressures that nixed it two years ago.
