Is Your City a Starbucks City or a Dunkin’ City?

Food & Wine writers are passionate about coffee and have spent the past year researching the best coffee subscriptions, coffee and espresso machines, grinders, scales, and mugs for home use. They also outsource coffee making to professionals at local coffee shops or chain shops like Peet’s Coffee, Tim Hortons, Dutch Bros., The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, or Caribou Coffee. Starbucks and Dunkin’ are two of the top brands in the $11 billion American coffee market, with Starbucks owning the largest share.

Clever’s research found that the two brands have a real East Coast vs. West Coast rivalry, with the top 5 cities with the most Starbucks fans being Sacramento, California, Los Angeles, Riverside, California, San Diego, and Seattle, Washington. On the other hand, the top 5 cities with the most Dunkin’ lovers are Providence, Rhode Island, Hartford, Connecticut, Boston, Baltimore, and Chicago.

The origins of each brand may also play a role, as Dunkin’ was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, while Starbucks originated in Seattle. Regardless of the choice, the ultimate goal is to walk out the door with coffee, and a travel mug is all you need to go with it.
