A Fascinating Map of Popular Coffee Shop Chain Locations in the United States

Coffee Shop Chain Location Map

Data visualization expert Nathan Yau used data available from AggData to create a series of maps that visualize which popular coffee shop chains are located within a 10-mile radius across the United States. Many chains are represented on the map, including Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. More maps are available on Yau’s website. Previously Yau made a similar series of maps for pizza chains.

My expectation was that Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts would dominate, with 10,000-plus and 7,000-plus locations nationwide, respectively. This wasn’t far-fetched when you look at the map above. It shows the nearest coffee place among the popular chains, within a 10-mile radius.
