Dunkin' Donuts to Go Public

In a widely anticipated move, the parent company of the Dunkin' Donuts chain has filed for an IPO. The company will trade under the symbol DNKN and plans to sell approximately $400 million in shares, mostly to pay down its debt.

With its affordable prices and wide menu selection, Dunkin' Donuts has continued to grow through the recession, though it never quite overtook rival Starbucks. But the company would like to break more ground outside its home base of Northern U.S., as well as open more stores overseas.
