At a time when many companies are feeling economic uncertainty, Dunkin' Donuts is feeling confident about the future.

The company said Wednesday it is doubling its locations in the U.S. over the next 20 years. The doughnut and coffee chain currently has nearly 7,000 outlets across the nation.

Dunkin' Donuts also said it has streamlined its supply chain from four regional suppliers to one, a move it says will help cut costs.
