|No Dunkin' Donuts near you? Coming soon to an area near you??|
Dunkin' Brands opened its 10,000th location of Dunkin' Donuts in mid-December. That's a major milestone; only a few restaurant chains have made it to five digits. But the Canton, Mass.-based company isn't ready to rest just yet. According to CNN, Dunkin' plans to double its number of U.S. locations over the next two decades. Talk about the long game!
Doubling the number of outposts would mean opening a whopping 7000 new donut stores -- which would bring the total above Starbucks' current 11,000.
