The IPO market may be running on Dunkin's

Most of the IPO news has been arond technology businesses--Groupon, LinkedIn, Pandora, Zynga, etc.

But what might catch America's appetite might be all-American blue-collar brand Dunkin' Donuts heading to the public markets.

The owner of Dunkin’ Donuts--who also owns the 31 flavors of Baskin Robbins, is looking to raise as much as $460.6 million in a stock offering, by selling 22.25 million shares (that's about 1.8 million dozen in donut-speak).

The company is currently owned by investment groups Bain Capital Partners, the Carlyle Group and Thomas H. Lee Partners who acquired the company from Pernod Ricard.

I'll take a dozen shares to go, please.
