As a Scandinavian I have more knowledge of market than many others. However my data collection might be affected by this fact and there is a risk of being biased when addressing this issue. Furthermore Dunkin Brands made a decision and is already looking for franchisees, which might affect the availability of data against Dunkin Donuts entering
