    Plural form of Denny's

    What is the plural form of "Denny's"?
    Would you say "There are two Denny's(es?) in this area." if you don't want to say two Denny's restaurants?

    How about Starbucks? I know it's the rule to add "es" to make the plural form when the noun ends with "s", but it seems native speakers don't always follow this rule.
