I saw this too a while back.Interesting to see what brand is most famous in each state.

Here's the link but if you're wondering what some states are and don't feel like here are some of that are hard to make out.

New Jersey = Campbell's

New Hampshire = Timberland

Vermont= Ben & Jerry's

Rohde Island = Hasbro

Delaware = DuPont

Hawaii = Hawaiian Airlines

Obvious ones: Washington, Oregon, MIssouri, Arkansas, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Maine, Michigan, Tennessee, Colorado. If you'd asked me the question "Name a company based in _____" I'd have answered that respective company.

No idea what Great Harvest Bread Co. (Montana), Carrs (Alaska), Taco John's (Wyoming), Allsup's (New Mexico), Gino's (WV) or Zappos (Nevada) even are. How is Nevada not something casino or Las Vegas-related? And I know it's technically Yum!, but how is Kentucky not KFC?

Here is a somewhat different take on that map:

Zappos is a HUGE online retailer, to the tune of likely more than $2 billion a year in revenue (most recent I could find was $1.6 in 2010, which has likely grown considerably since then thanks to working with Amazon). Casinos make a lot, but the entire strip combined only earns about $4 billion a year, I believe (can't remember the exact number). Anyway, Zappos has literally every kind of shoe you'd want, and killer customer service. Highly recommend.

I find AZ's choices a little puzzling, with major brands like PetSmart and US Airways HQ'd here. Also, LOL @ Taco Johns in WY... not much to choose from, apparently.

This alcohol one needs to have Kentucky with Jim Beam, Makers Mark, Brown-Forman (Woodford Reserve, Early Times), Heaven Hill, and Wild Turkey covered across the state.

This one?

PBR has tov be more iconic than Miller at this point, but if Wisconsin has to be stuck with a sh~tty beer, howcome Michigan gets Belle Isle and not Stroh's?

And on what planet is Grain Belt more well-known than Hamm's?

Florida should be Bacardi. it's a hell of a lot bigger than Cigar City (even though Jai Alai is the best beer ever)

I think Google or Warner Brothers (or another Hollywood brand) might be more well known than Apple. It's debatable.

Biggest "mind-blow" of all those states is Alabama.

50's = 1 out of 10 years =.100

60's = 2 out of 10 years =.200

70's = 1 out of 10 years =.100

80's = 8 out of 10 years =.800

90's = 0 out of 10 years =.000

00's = 6 out of 10 years =.600

10's = 4 out of 3 years =1.333

Do you think the 10's can beat the 80's? Although the 00's started out hot also.

Except that mostly college kids drink it, and higher end places don't even carry it. PA has a ton of excellent craft breweries. Not up there with CA or New England, but I believe you can by Victory nationwide, so as someone in his mid 30s, I'd make that PAs beer now.

I think Disney would be more well known then those combined.

It's true!

And allsups is a convenience store chain in NewMex. Trying to remember if that or another was taken over by Stripes. I think town and country was taken by stripes.
