Quartz just dropped an amazing cartographic guide to Starbucks’ GLOBAL DOMINATION, complete with nifty infographics.
The guide reveals that the small town of Circle, Montana is the farthest spot from any Starbucks in the continental US—the town is “more than 192 miles from the nearest green-aproned barista.” See the map above for a visual.
Yes, despite Starbucks’ global domination—the chain has stores in 63 countries…
…Starbucks tend to pop up around densely populated areas of America.
“Outside of urban centers in wealthier countries, there’s plenty of territory that the vanillia-chai-skinny-latte has not yet claimed. Vast swaths of the US, not to mention the rest of the world, are untouched by the Starbucks green-siren logo.”
Other fascinating facts gleaned from Quartz‘s data-crunching include:
- Seoul is the most Starbucks-filled city.
- There are 210 locations in Manhattan, slightly more than six per square mile (of those, 91 branches are in Midtown Manhattan).
- On a trip from Boston to Philly, a Starbucks is never more than 10 miles away.
- Canada has the most Starbucks locations after the US.
- The farthest you can get from a Starbucks on earth is off the coast of South Africa.
