Dunkin’ Donuts same-store sales in the US rose by 3.2 percent in the fourth-quarter

Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc., the Canton-based parent of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, said fourth-quarter profit rose 196.2 percent to $34.3 million even as revenues declined by 4 percent to $161.7 million.

The profit jump is largely attributed to the fact that the company took a $19 million impairment charge in the fourth quarter of 2011.
