Dunkin' Brands Group cut its 2015 forecast for same-store sales growth in the United States and operating income growth, citing slowing sales of packaged coffee in its restaurants.

The company said it now expected U.S. comparable store sales growth of 1 percent to 3 percent, down from its previous forecast of 2 percent to 4 percent.

It also cut its forecast for adjusted operating income growth to 6 percent to 8 percent from 10 percent to 12 percent.

The company forecast adjusted earnings of $1.75 to $1.76 per share. Analysts on average were expecting earnings of $2.02, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
