AT MATADOR NETWORK, we like cafes. What better way to work than taking your laptop to a place that has a large supply of coffee and treats? And although we prefer locally-owned, independent coffee shops, we know that chains are quite ubiquitous in the US.
The map below created by Maptitude shows the most common chain is in each US county. Unsurprisingly, the two largest chains are Starbucks (predominant in 574 counties) and Dunkin Donuts (predominant in 399 counties), followed by Tim Hortons, Caribou, and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
