The deal under discussion would make Dunkin ‘Brands private at a price of $ 106.50 a share, said The New York Times, which first reported on the development. Inspire Brands, owner of Arby’s and Jimmy John’s, declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.
The announcement could be made public as early as Monday, the New York Times reported.
Inspire’s portfolio includes more than 11,000 Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, SONIC Drive-In, Rusty Taco and Jimmy John’s locations around the world, according to the company’s website. Inspire Brands was formed in 2018 by private equity firm Roark Capital as a holding company after Arby’s completed the acquisition of Buffalo Wild Wings.
