Bring on the doughnut holes and extremely large iced coffees! Dunkin’ Donuts has announced plans to double its locations in the U.S. There are around 7,000 stores open as of now, and the increase will take place over the next 20 years.
CNN says the company revealed the news of expansion today, as they’ve finished tying up some loose ends and consolidating regional suppliers under one company.
The consolidation and tidying up of Dunkin’ Donuts supply chain will cut costs and help the company make sure doughnuts, coffee and Dunkin’ Donuts’ various food items are sold at consistent prices around the country.
With the price hikes at Starbucks in various areas of the country, the more widely proliferated Dunkin’ Donuts will likely be a boon to customers who need a caffeine fix on the go.
Your move, Krispy Kreme!
