Several weeks ago, it was reported that JAB Holdings had created a Panera Brands platform which includes three of the companys breakfast daypart entities – Panera Bread, Caribou Coffee and Einstein Bros. Bagels. In the wake of the move, speculation is that after private ownership for the past five years, the company is likely to take Panera Brands public again. Speaking of going public, we also noted a few weeks ago that Dutch Brothers Coffee, with 500 locations across 11 different states, has formally filed to issue an Initial Public Offering (IPO) sometime later this year. At this time, the company has yet to determine its price or the amount of stock it will issue.
