Map: The Most Popular Chain Restaurants By State


Americans are notorious for our love of fast food, and now, thanks to Thrillist, we can identify the home (founded or headquartered) of individual chain restaurants by state. The clever-map-creating folks over at Thrillist HQ impressed us all with their Booze Map of the USA, but their latest map, "Red, White, & Food" (full-size here), leads me to believe that they might just be getting started with these diagrams. Some of the findings illustrated in this map won't come as much of a surprise -- like that fact that Washington is linked to Starbucks, New York to Sbarro, California to In-N-Out, Vermont to Ben & Jerry's or Ohio to Wendy's -- but other chain restaurant homes seem less intuitive.
