In the Dunkin' Donuts example, both with and without the extra "iz" sound plausible to me. So, how does one determine what people say? Would you claim that both constructions are valid?

So, what you are saying is that if people conversationally add an extra "iz" to the end of the word then add "'s" in writing, else just add an apostrophe?

According to the answer to this question, if we treat the company name as singular, then it should actually be "Dunkin' Donuts's annual report".
