Future Dunkin’ Brands reported slower sales growth slow in Q4 of 2014 as it faced intensifying competition for on-the-go customers in the mornings. Sales for Dunkin’ Donuts USA edged up 1.4 percent in the period, down from the growth of 3.5 percent a year ago. Analysts say the slowdown comes as more competitors have pushed into the breakfast category, a relative bright spot in the fast-food industry. For example, Yum Brands’ Taco Bell segment recently reported that its quarterly sales rose 7 percent in its U.S. locations, boosted by its national breakfast launch. Dunkin’ CEO Nigel Travis says, “If you think about it, everyone’s getting into the breakfast space.”
