The Donut Battle heats up.

Well, the latest on Bess Eaton's: first Dunkin Donut's wants to get into the bidding, then Honey Dew Donuts is mulling a bid. Updates here.

Honey Dew might be a good candidate for expansion, There's a smidgen of overlap with Bess Eaton but a lot of new areas for them in CT and south RI. Dunkin's... they're only in the bidding to try and keep Tim Horton's out. There are far too many Dunkin's and Bess Eaton's close to each other, they'd get maybe 15-20 truly new locations out of the 48 Bess Eaton stores. I think they're just scare to death of Horton's coming into the area, and the slow march northward of Krispy Kreme...
