In 2006, Bain Capital joined forces with two other investment groups to buy the failing Dunkin’ Brands Incorporated and orchestrate its turnaround to profitable success.
Dunkin’ Brands Inc. owns the Baskin-Robbins chain of ice cream franchises.
Barack Obama worked at a Baskin-Robbins in Hawaii when he was a teenager and shared his first kiss with Michelle while they were on an ice cream date at a Baskin-Robbins in Chicago.
Bain Capital was co-founded by Obama’s current rival, Mitt Romney.
In other words, Barack scooped Baskin-Robbins and kissed Baskin-Robbins, but it was the company Mitt built that saved Baskin-Robbins from bankruptcy.
