Inspire Brands announced on Sunday it will buy Dunkin’ Brands Group for $11.3 billion, bringing chains like Dunkin’ Donuts and Arby’s under the same umbrella in what would be one of the largest restaurant deals in decades.

Inspire Brands, which owns Buffalo Wild Wings, Arby’s and Sonic Drive-In, said its all-cash deal to take the owner of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins chains private would value it at $106.50 a share, representing a nearly 20 percent premium over Dunkin’s last closing share price on October 23rd.

Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins posted on Saturday a surprising rise in United States comparable sales in the third quarter. Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins will operate as distinct brands within Inspire.

“We are excited to bring meaningful value to shareholders who … believe that Inspire Brands … will continue to drive growth for our franchisees while remaining true to all that is unique and special about the Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins brands,” Dunkin’ Brands Chief Executive Officer Dave Hoffmann said in a statement.
