Maptitude is the best mapping software for business intelligence! The 2017 Maptitude Country Packages include an updated point landmark database that includes thousands of retail stores and restaurants, including coffee shops. The map below shows the concentration of coffee shops by county and what the most common chain is in each county. The two largest chains by far are Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, followed by Tim Hortons, Caribou, and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Starbucks is predominant in 574 counties and Dunkin Donuts is predominant in 399 counties. Caribou is predominant in its home state of Minnesota and Biggby is predominant around its home city of East Lansing, Michigan. Canadian coffee brewer Tim Hortons is also making some inroads in the Northern United States, especially in border counties.
