Cramer: Could Dunkin' Be the Next Domino's?

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Lindsey Bell: Dunkin' Brands (DNKN - Get Report) reported earnings this morning. Jim, what's your take on the quarter?

Jim Cramer: OK. I'm speaking to the company tonight. Here's what I'm interested in: One is, is that they're expanding rapidly west of the Mississippi. They have very few stores. Is this going to be the next Domino's Pizza (DPZ - Get Report)? It is a franchise model. Second, is international. They want to go international but apparently the actual growth there so far is not that great. I have got to find out why that is. Third, I need to know whether the coffee bull market is on. I mean, it sure seems like it from Starbucks (SBUX - Get Report), and we've had takeovers in the area. But McDonald's (MCD - Get Report) had a dollar coffee and it didn't seem to hurt Dunkin'. So I've got to drill down and find out about that.

Lindsey Bell: Which stock do you like better, Dunkin' or Starbucks?

Jim Cramer: This is a very hard call because we own Starbucks for Action Alerts Plus. Dunkin' is much cheaper. Dunkin' has got an American growth path and Starbucks doesn't. So I don't know the answers, but I'm going to find out tonight.

Lindsey Bell: Do you think Dunkin' could compete with Starbucks in the international arena?

Jim Cramer: Yes, I do. I think there's room for both.

Lindsey Bell: This is going to be one to watch. Check in with Mad Money. Jim's going to have them on tonight.
