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.
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.
