Fast Food Proliferation

I have written previous posts on how many Starbucks there are in California. It seems that there must be a state law that you cannot be more than a mile from the closest store.  However, Starbucks is not the most ubiquitous chain of food outlets in the US. It is just third on the list of fast food chains by outlet.

If you add the number of Starbucks stores to the count of the second most common in the US, McDonalds, you get 25,285 locations.  That seems like a large number, until you consider that Subway has 25,549 shops in the US. It has more than the 2nd & 3rd largest combined.
