Fast-food nations

McDonald’s ranking in customer satisfaction in the US is slipping but that hasn’t stopped the fast-food giant from expanding its reach globally. Meanwhile Starbucks continues its lead with 3 new stores opening daily around the world.

Personally, I’m not a coffee person although I’m not averse to an occasional cuppa. McDonald’s? Well, I’ve seen Supersize Me and I know all about artery-clogging meat patties and trans fat and french fries. But when you need a quick bite and you’re not picky, McD’s all right. Besides, when you have kids it’s practically impossible to give it a wide berth.

Check out this map to see how Starbucks and McD’s stack up globally in the new world order.
