no doubt in my and anyone's mind that this is up for sale jsut how much is the question. new CEO will find sale is better then trying to build something...yum should buy this company then again gmcr
Insiders hold onlly .063 less than 1% in this company. They get perks non market shares so why do they really need to get this company cranking? With all ese new stores opening, why aren't we moving beyond the range we are sitting at? No pumping just intelligent remarks please...
I wish the boneheads running KKD would build more outlets in the USA!
Granted, old management s c r e w Ed the pup and Livengood got his comeuppance, but I'm tired of driving 6 miles to get my fix, when there used to be one just a mile from my house, that was always busy.
There is a Dunkin less than 1/2 mile away from me that is always busy, but the KKD store they closed about 2 years ago ALWAYS had more customers.
Burgers? Super-competitive, mostly low margin biz, trying to fight big players, old and new, I don't think so.
problem was store opening was slow and should done some kind of partnership with burger for licensing for brand name thsis stock would have been 50's by bow , mismanagement in last three years, oh dont forget the coffee kkd coffee sucked
On 4/24/2012 KKD closed at $7.15. Yesterday it closed at $19.34. I will gladly take a similar result of gain over the next three years. During that time they introduced the new small factory store concept. I know from personal experience that this store concept will fuel a strong domestic growth. KKD will never be like Dunkin in number of store growth, because KKD requires more than a few tables and a coffee machine like Dunkin.
franchise burger with roller skaters serving burgers , go after suburb with large parking lot , this company has good name and will attract lots of burger customers, small burger joint cooks burgers but big parking lot served by roller skaters, bring it back it will work find a good burger partners and go after rural area with cheap real estate believe me people will drive there for the experience it worked in 50's and with strong brand name it will work and wil drive stock price to roof , different experience and as long as burger tastes no less then average it will work
missing my point kkd is suffering last three years for slow growth due to lacking more domestic stores and good coffee instead it focused on bagles and other cold beverages ....i suggest kkd go into burger business like in and out burger with private partners name alone has huge potential and kkd store looks similar to in and out burger with white interior
Why bring up Dunkin? Despite it's name, Dunkin is a coffee shop business that sells a small amount of donuts as a percent of store sales. The donuts that they do sell are not made at the stores. KKD is a doughnut mfg business. They make the doughnut mix, the doughnut equipment, and the doughnuts. The Krispy Kreme brand is one of the strongest in the world. These two are not really competitors.
