We don’t know why, but we found this honestly quite interesting! This is a map of the United States, but each state represents the most famous brand that was founded in that state.
Many of the brands are surprising! It was just a bit of fun information that we thought we would share!
And for the states that are really hard to see:
- District of Columbia = C-Span
- Connecticut = GE
- Delaware = DuPont
- Maryland = GEICO
- Massachusetts = Gillette
- Rhode Island = Hasbro
- New Hampshire = Timberland
- New Jersey = Campbell’s
- Vermont = Ben & Jerry’s
We have never heard of Allsup’s, barely heard of Gino’s and Carrs and we didn’t realize that brands like Zappo’s and Lexmark were that big to be put on a map! Some of them make sense (like Hershey’s, Apple and Starbucks) but some are sorta off the wall! Anyway, it was an interesting find!
So…. what brand is your state? Are you surprised by that? Do you think that there is a MORE famous brand in your state?
Our home state is an awesome one – Albertsons! We love and miss Albertsons!! It is the BEST grocery store and a very good corporation for our home state and all that they do for this state!
We actually saw this picture on the Best Western site as they were proud of their achievement, but we don’t know who has made this map!
