Long before places like McDonald’s and Subway were national food chains, they started off as up-and-coming restaurants only locals knew about.
Have you ever wondered where many of the places you can now find all over the country call home? This map has your answer.
The talented people over at Thrillist put together a map showing the most noteworthy food chain from each state. The restaurant could either be founded in a state or headquartered there, but either way it has got to call the state its home.
The map shows some restaurants we are all familiar with, like Burger King, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut, but it also has some regional gems like Five Guys, Whataburger, and Taco John’s.
