A coffee chain on every corner

A coffee chain on every corner

In this project we scraped locations of various popular coffee chains from the Food Standards Agency website and used them to emphasise just how dominant these chains have become in Britain. We built a tool that allowed a user to input their postcode and see how many outlets of each different coffee chain were within one mile and five miles of their location. The tool proved popular and was used widely across the group.
