Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: DNKN), the parent company of Dunkin' and Baskin-Robbins (BR), today reported results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2019.

"Continuing the momentum established earlier in the year, our second quarter performance was highlighted by double-digit sales growth of espresso, our national value platforms, and terrific consumer reception to our latest menu innovation, our better-for-you Power Platform. We're attracting a new consumer with both espresso and our Power Platform and will continue to bring more on-trend innovation to fuel guests throughout the day," said David Hoffmann, Dunkin' Brands Chief Executive Officer and President of Dunkin' U.S. "Additionally, as a result of a highly-collaborative process with our franchisees, the Next Generation restaurant design, with nearly 300 already in the marketplace, is now the standard image for all new builds and remodels. This new store design takes our commitment to serving "great coffee, fast" to the next level through an optimized mobile order pick-up experience, iced beverage tap system, and drive-thru enhancements that make it even easier to use Dunkin' on-the-go. We are pleased with the progress we are making against our Dunkin' U.S. Blueprint for Growth, largely driven by our strong franchisee/franchisor relationship, which continues to be our number one asset."

"The investment our system made in espresso equipment and training in 2018 continued to deliver strong returns. Espresso, a critical component of our beverage-led strategy, is now our fastest growing category with sales for the second quarter up more than 40 percent versus the prior year period," said Kate Jaspon, Chief Financial Officer, Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. "The introduction of Dunkin' Handcrafted Signature Lattes was a key contributor to total espresso growth and helped drive our second quarter performance, including 1.7 percent growth in Dunkin' U.S. comparable store sales, and nearly 8 percent operating income growth for Dunkin' Brands."
